Ohio Ballot Issues - November 2015
Ohio Ballot Issues
In the Catholic Tradition, responsible citizenship is a virtue, and participation in political life is a moral obligation. Political rights are meant to be exercised for the common good of the nation and the human community.
There are three statewide issues on the November 3, 2015 ballot.

Today is the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi, and in a particular way, may we take a moment today and pray for all consecrated men and women who have committed their lives to service in the Church through vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience and all those who have committed their lives through the example of St. Francis. However, we also remember the instruc-tion given to Francis from our Lord: “Francis rebuild my church!” When Francis heard this he thought that our Lord was asking him to rebuild the church building, but after much prayer and discernment, he realized that our Lord was asking him to rebuild His Church—that is the people who profess their name as Christian.
This weekend we have a challenge before us: “How can I help rebuild the Church of Christ?” I would suggest returning to the penitential prac-tices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. In prayer we take time to redirect our minds, thoughts, and bodies to the Lord-- prayer is a time when we can once again hear the voice of the Lord and respond more directly to His voice. When we fast, we deny ourselves certain foods, activities, or entertainment that may lead us away from the Lord—when we fast, we can once again hear the voice of the Lord and respond more attentively to his invitation to “come follow me.” With almsgiving, we once again give back to the Lord, and through giving back to the Lord, we can help others to receive what the Lord has blessed us with. The Lord asked Francis to rebuild his church, and through Francis’ example and witness he did just that. May the example and the witness of St. Francis inspire us as well. May the Lord Bless You and Keep You.
The weekend of October 10-11th marks the Twenty-Ninth Annual Blanket Sunday Collection to aid the needy. This collection is sponsored by the Diocesan St. Vincent de Paul Society.
Due to lack of storage space, we will gratefully accept your donation and do the shopping for you, making your money go even further with bulk purchases of blankets and other items needed by the homeless and disadvantaged.
So "blanket" someone for the winter - and give yourself and warm feeling! You may also donate online at www.svdpcle.org. Thank you.
