The only thing I'm going to blog about elections this season

Dorothy Day, when questioned why she wasn't headed out to the polls one election day, replied, "If God had wanted us to vote, he would have provided some candidates."

I believe every Catholic in our country should read and ponder this excellent document about the moral and spiritual things we must consider when deciding for whom we should cast our votes, or whether it is possible, in a particular race, to vote for anyone at all. Written before the current controversies, it is thoughtful and complete, and well worth the study.
