Prayer for the upcoming Federal Election

How can faith and politics meet in today’s world?

Some resources to help guide the faithful for the upcoming Federal Election this Monday:

  • As Canadians return to the polls once again, former politician John Milloy spoke with Salt + Light Media’s Benjamin Boivin about his experience as a Catholic politician. In this interview he offers a perspective on the relationship between faith and today’s political realities from a politician’s point of view. Read the interview here.
  • Not sure who to vote for next Monday? Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Toronto, a ShareLife-funded organization, has produced this insightful guide highlighting Catholic Social Teaching on human dignity, poverty, Indigenous issues, health care, the environment and other issues. Read the guide here:
  • Brendan Steven of joins Deacon Eric Gurash and Dr. Brett Salkeld (Archdiocese of Regina) and discuss the role of Catholic voters and the need for deep discernment in the upcoming Canadian federal election. Show Snippet: “I want more Catholics to learn more about Catholic Social Teaching, and…how blown away you will be about the consequences of Christ’s love for all his people, and the way that manifests in how the Church teaches how we live in community with one another.”  Listen to podcast
  • Parishes: Consider adding the petition below during Masses this weekend:
    • For our nation in this time of discernment, election, and transition: May all citizens cast their vote in a spirit of reverence for this right, charity for those they disagree with, and concern for the good of all as we strive for a more perfect and peaceful union. Let us pray to the Lord…
