Our Moral Responsibility to Vote – Fr. Frank Pavone

BY FR. FRANK PAVONE

This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org

“Every man has the obligation to vote, because by voting he can determine … who will make tomorrow’s laws either to be unjust and perverse, or to promote human values. . . God Himself asks that every Christian, make his contribution by voting”. (Bishop Karl Romer, Secretary, Pontifical Council for the Family, The Vatican).

Reflection: Everything we can say about the tremendous moral responsibility of those who craft legislation and put it into effect really reflects the moral responsibility of those who put them in those positions in the first place – the voters.

Prayer: Lord, may we use wisely the freedom to elect our lawmakers. Amen.
