As we prepare our hearts and minds to express our voice...may we pray 𝘈 𝘗𝘳𝘢𝘺𝘦𝘳 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘚𝘢𝘴𝘬𝘢𝘵𝘤𝘩𝘦𝘸𝘢𝘯 courtesy of Catholic Conscience:
Saint Joseph, Patron of Canada, I ask for your blessing and guidance as I prepare to cast my vote in the Saskatchewan election. Help me to reflect prayerfully on each of the parties and candidates and discern in my conscience which of these I believe will best serve the common good of all Saskatchewanians. As I do so, remind me, Saint Joseph, that it is the highest calling of every Christian to love God and to love our neighbours; and that whatever we do to the least among us, we do to Christ himself. Saint Joseph, protect and guide all the people of Saskatchewan—that we may together build a more just, loving, and united community, aimed at the common good of all; and together love our neighbours and build the Kingdom of Heaven, in honour of your foster son and our Lord, Jesus Christ. For the future of Saskatchewan, I pray, 𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘍𝘢𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳, 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘢𝘳𝘵 𝘪𝘯 𝘩𝘦𝘢𝘷𝘦𝘯, 𝘩𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘰𝘸𝘦𝘥 𝘣𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘺 𝘯𝘢𝘮𝘦…Amen.
As our provincial election day approaches on Monday, October 26, Saskatchewan’s Roman Catholic Dioceses and the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy, in partnership with Catholic Conscience invited representatives of each of Saskatchewan's six political parties into a conversation about their respective platforms. Five of the six accepted our invitation to spend a few minutes with Alison Bradish of the Archdiocese of Regina. We are pleased to present you with their responses.
