The Catholic approach to faithful citizenship begins with moral principles, not party platforms. According to the US Catholic bishops, “the work for justice requires that the mind and the heart of Catholics be educated and formed to know and practice the whole faith” (USCCB, 2007). Catholics and other people of faith articulate shared principles about the common good: building a culture of life, promoting economic justice and peace, establishing foreign policy rooted in global solidarity, and caring for all God’s creations.
