Bishop Kettler: Answering our call to be faithful citizens

We modern-day disciples face many challenges when it comes to voting and living out our civic responsibilities. We live in a political environment often marked by strident partisanship, negative campaigning and simplistic sound bites. We may feel politically homeless because candidates and political parties fail to embrace a vision of society consistent with the Gospel — a vision that respects everyone’s God-given human dignity and helps build a world in which every person can reach their full potential.
