Bp. Sample (D. Marquette) on the upcoming election, November 2012

My friend Fr. John Boyle has posted on his blog Caritas in veritate, some links to four articles from His Excellency Most Rev. Alexander Sample, Bishop of Marquette.    Take it away, Fr. Boyle:

Bishop Sample of Marquette, Michigan, is contributing a 4-part series of articles in the diocesan newspaper The UP Catholic to guide his diocesan faithful in the November General Election.

His first article entitled “A Consequential Election” deals in general with the Church’s social teachings describing her rich and well-developed social doctrine as “one of the ‘best kept secrets of the Church’”.

In his second article Bishop Sample writes about the Church’s teachings on life. “From the very moment of conception, a unique and irreplaceable member of the human family comes into existence.”

The UP Catholic, published twice monthly, is available free on line, and you can subscribe to receive a free email notification when a new edition is published by clicking on the enotify button at the top of the page.

WDTPRS kudos to Bp. Sample.

    I did a double-take when I first saw “Bp. Sample (D. Marquette)” which I read as “Bishop Sample, Democrat, Marquette.”

    God bless, Bishop Sample! As Fr. Z has mentioned previously, His Excellency will be downstate to celebrate a Solemn High Pontifical Mass (EF) at Assumption Grotto on Sunday 10/14.

    Would that we had such clear thinking on” social justice” in the Boise Diocese. The center pages of the Diocesan newspaper are published in Spanish and are devoted to promoting the Dream Act, how to obtain government assistance, and importuning the government for more benefits for the undocumented poor etc.

    Another reason to vote the Democrats and Obama out of office.

    Sounds like new speak to me.

  7. Theodore, you’re in my diocese? I agree with you, I’ve seen nothing but the liberal form of Social Justice since I’ve been here. I’m in a parish in Coeur d’Alene, ID…
