The attack ads work, and so we seem to get more with each election cycle. I am surprised anyone runs for major offices. Are good people willing to subject themselves and their families to such awful treatment to attain political office, or are we simply left with candidates who are pursuing power, prestige and wealth? (If the attack ads are believed, we only have terrible people running for office. I hope that is not really the case.)
My encouragement to you today is simply this. Continue to live a good and holy life. Pray. Study the Sacred Scriptures, the Catechism, the lives of the saints, papal documents, and the early Church Fathers. Please form your conscience well. Then build the Kingdom of God accordingly. Put your faith into action. Be a life-giving person in a world that desperately needs your witness.
