Most Rev Kevin Manning DD, Bishop Emeritus of Parramatta, is now blogging for CathBlog, an extension of Church Resources' daily e-news service, CathNews.
Posted today, Bishop Kevin's first blog - 'Church has a role in the election' - points to the responsbility of Catholic laity to be informed, active and responsible participants in the political process, drawing on their experience and exercising their distinctive roles within the Christian community.
"Turning our backs on involvement in politics is not an effective or responsible approach for Christians," Bishop Kevin writes. "We need committed, informed citizens to demand accountability from our political leaders and government institutions in order to achieve the common good."
