Faithful Citizenship

With an election upcoming, the September 7, 2008 bulletin at St. Al's included the Catholic Update version of this insert. The pastor also discussed it in his homily, concluding with a mention of life issues, including abortion. While there have been rose sales for right to life causes, and life issues have sometimes been included in the Prayer of the Faithful, I don't recall a previous mention of the word "abortion" in a homily in almost two decades of attending Mass at St. Al's.


  1. Did the Pastor mention that little section about family---"man and woman..." stuff?

  2. I believe he did.

    Almost seems like there might be some real advantages in the bishops, priests, teachers, and catechists all teaching the same thing.
