The Duty to Participate

If you’re Catholic and live in a democracy, you have a duty to vote.  And you have a duty to to vote according to your conscience – which you must form properly, and independently, by familiarizing yourself with the social teachings of the Church and using those teachings as a framework for keeping up with and interpreting the news.
