Faithful Citizenship/Election 2016
As Catholics, we are part of a community with profound teachings that help us consider challenges in public life, contribute to greater justice and peace for all people, and evaluate policy positions, party platforms, and candidates' promises and actions in light of the Gospel in order to help build a better world.
The contentiousness that is found in the current political season sends an important message to all Catholics to carefully consider their choices.
This newsletter will help Catholics form their consciences when selecting candidates for political office.
Individual and parish resources are available here and on the Faithful Citizenship website of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Why Should Catholics Care
The Church's obligation to participate in shaping the moral character of society is a requirement of our faith, a part of the mission given to us by Jesus Christ. As people of both faith and reason, Catholics are called to bring truth to political life and to practice Christ's commandment to "love one another" (Jn 13:34).
The US Constitution protects the right of individual believers and religious bodies to proclaim and live out their faith without government interference, favoritism, or discrimination. Civil law should recognize and protect the Church's right and responsibility to participate in society without abandoning its moral convictions. Our nation's tradition of pluralism is enhanced, not threatened, when religious groups and people of faith bring their convictions into public life. The Catholic community brings to political dialogue a consistent moral framework and broad experience serving those in need.
Carolina Catholic goes to the movies with John Lewis
For our first October show, we chat with St. Mark parishioner, John Lewis, about seven popular secular films or film franchises that have been released over the past five years that reflected our Catholic values. We examine the Star Wars movies, the Kung Fu Panda trilogy, Les Miserables, the 2015 remake of Disney's Cinderella, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and The Hobbit and Captain American trilogies. John found deep spiritual meaning in all of these films that he feels speak to younger generations giving a positive Christian message to all.
This show will air Saturdays at 11 am and Sundays at 6 pm. The dates are Saturdays, October 1 and 8, and Sundays, October 2 and 9.
