Election 2016: "A Revolution of Tenderness" Voting Resource

One of the suggestions that came out of the CMSM member and JPIC meeting in Region 5  in 2016 was to develop some election guide material. We worked with a new Catholic coalition of national advocacy organizations and developed: A Revolution of Tenderness: a 2016 Election Pope Francis Voter Guide* (Long Version PDF | Two-Page PDF). This is meant as a spiritual reflection guide and to incorporate significant elements of Pope Francis’ message from the organizational signers' perspective. (*This guide is not officially endorsed or denied by Pope Francis.)

Even after the election, we hope you find it helpful and share it with your religious community, friends and family, lay associates, schools and parishes, ministries, social media, etc. It's great for personal reflection, group discussions, homily resource, handout at Mass, etc.
