Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship

It is important that Catholic people examine ballot issues with a moral dimension in light of Catholic teaching. The audio reflections linked below invite listeners to visit the U.S. bishops’ website, for information relevant to making decisions with a well-formed conscience in the voting booth.

After listening to these reflections, Catholic people are encouraged to share them with others to assist in the bishops’ efforts to form Catholic consciences.

The Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenships messages were produced in cooperation with Franciscan Media with funding from the Catholic Communication Campaign.
