Authentic Democracy

Here is something our elected leaders need to remember.

“An authentic democracy… is the fruit of a convinced acceptance of the values that inspire democratic principles: the dignity of every human person, the respect of human rights, commitment to the common good as the purpose and guiding criterion for political life.” — Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church, # 407

Let us pray for those in elected office. May they strive for the common good and the dignity of all human beings.
