Vote for the Voiceless

The Catholic Bishops of Australia have released a statement on the upcoming election titled “Vote for the Voiceless”. Addressed to Catholics and all people of good will, the statement asks us to deeply listen to the voiceless - including "Earth's cry for justice" - and to use our vote and collective power for the good of the whole community.   The statement can be downloaded here: http://catholicearthcare.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/ACBC_election_statement_2016.pdf

They have also published a prayer which you can download at https://www.catholic.org.au/uncategorised/a-prayer-for-the-election
