election 2011

Nov 6, 2011

In my homily this weekend, I referred to this months general election. 

A Christian will use their votes wisely and well considering not only their own interests, but also the needs of those in our country in greatest need.

More than ever there are life and death issues that must carry more weight in our choice than tax cuts and retirement benefits.

The handout from today’s Mass is also available at www.valueyourvote.org.nz

Let me know if you have other election resources that I could share on this blog.
