Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship Videos Inspire Catholics to Prayer and Action in Political Life

This week, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) released new videos to accompany the bishops' teaching document on Faithful Citizenship. According to the press release, "they seek to help the faithful participate in public life, prioritize faith over partisan politics, engage with civility, and respond to pressing issues of our day." Each video ends with a prayer.

Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the USCCB, emphasized the importance of these videos in advance of a heightened political season saying, "The bishops of the U.S. invite all Catholics to bring their faith into the public square. Political engagement and participation are important ways that together, we can work to protect the unborn, welcome immigrants, bring justice to victims of racism and religious intolerance, support families, accompany those experiencing poverty, and advocate on behalf of all who are vulnerable. As we enter an election year, these Faithful Citizenship videos are meant to help the faithful reflect on this call, and we hope they will be widely shared."

The videos are available on the USCCB's YouTube channel in four languages: English, Spanish, Tagalog, and Vietnamese. Follow the link to start watching today!
