GETTING READY FOR PRIMARY ELECTION DAY…
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ document “Faithful Citizenship” reminds us of guiding principles when choosing our political candidates and voting on issues: The right to life and the right to religious freedom should be the most important criteria when voting for someone in public office and on issues. The teachings of our Catholic Faith must be our anchor, refuge and compass. Remember the five “non-negotiables:” What is your candidate’s position on abortion, human cloning, assisted suicide, embryonic stem cell research and same-sex unions, all morally unacceptable acts? Remember the Church’s Seven Moral Principles of Catholic Social Teaching:
• Life and Dignity of the Human Person – All people are sacred, made in the image and likeness of God. This emphasizes people over things, and being over having.
• Call to Family, Community, and Participation – The human person is both sacred and social. We realize our dignity and rights in relationship with others, in community.
• Rights and Responsibilities – People have a fundamental right to life, food, shelter, health care, education and employment. All people have a right to participate in decisions that affect their lives.
• Option for the Poor and Vulnerable – The moral test of a society is how it treats its most vulnerable members. The poor have the most urgent moral claim on the conscience of the nation.
• The Dignity of Work and the Rights of Workers – People have a right to decent and productive work, fair wages, private property and economic initiative. The economy exists to serve people, not the other way around.
• Solidarity – We are one human family. Our responsibilities to each other cross national, racial, economic and ideological differences. We are called to work globally for justice.
• Care for God’s Creation – The goods of the earth are gifts from God. We have a responsibility to care for these goods as stewards and trustees, not as mere consumers and users.
Those who wish to be elected to city councils, county commissions, and other “smaller” offices sometimes make decisions that negatively impact life and families. All elections are important. Continue to read and to be informed! And vote on Election Day!
I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM…
Because of COVID-19 restrictions, the local council of the Knights of Columbus ice cream social after all Masses this weekend is cancelled. On a positive note, we share their joy in the news that the founder of the Knights of Columbus, Fr. Michael J. McGivney, has progressed in the process leading to canonization. On May 27, 2020, it was announced by Pope Francis that Fr. McGivney had been approved for beatification, which will officially happen at a yet-to-be-determined date. We also extend our congratulations to our newly-selected Grand Knight Mike Kostrzeba and his wife Gerry, for being selected the Michigan K of C “Family of the Year” at their State Convention in May. Congratulations and Vivat Jesus!
