The Bishops’ Document
Every four years, in preparation for the U.S. national elections, the U.S. Bishops re-issue a teaching document on Faithful Citizenship. Revised to take into account current issues of the day, this document is intended to enable Catholics in the U.S. to exercise their civic duty (e.g., voting) in a manner consistent with Gospel values and the social justice teaching of the Church.
