I usually don't pass along many videos, but one of our priests forwarded this video to me regarding faith values and public policy. It's not partisan. It's also short – less than five minutes – and it highlights Pope Benedict XVI's emphasis on three key values:
(1) protection of life – especially the life of the unborn young; (2) the importance for society to strengthen – and not redefine – marriage; and (3) freedom – especially religious liberty – being a key to a flourishing society. This short video might be a discussion starter for one of your parish meetings and a way to shift the focus away from political parties and candidates and toward values we would like carried forward into public life for the common good of everyone – believer and non-believer. As you know, the Church endorses no candidates. We are not here how to tell people to vote. We are here to form consciences so that our people can vote well.
