Elections

"The Church wishes to help form consciences in political life and to stimulate greater insight into the authentic requirements of justice as well as greater readiness to act accordingly, even when this might involve conflict with situations of personal interest. . . .

Yet at the same time she cannot and must not remain on the sidelines in the fight for justice."

- Benedict XVI,  Deus Caritas Est no. 28
