Homily for the 31st Sunday by Fr. Joel

Fr. Joel Church meets World, Homilies

Seeing like Jesus in the Voting Booth

Ordinary Time, 31st Sunday. Jesus sees the world differently and invites us to see it differently too. How does a Christian see the world when it comes to voting? Our Bishops have provided us with four basic principles:
1) The right to life of every human person.
2) The nature of marriage between a man and a woman, which must be protected and defended.
3) A special love for the poor, vulnerable, and those in danger or distress.
4) Stewardship of Creation.
This is how Christ sees the world. And remember this: only those who vote are allowed to complain about the government. (31 Oct 2010)
