"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Listening, reading, watching all the political ads, I'd say they are pretty much all about money. The moral issues seem to have taken a back seat. That said, the Massachusetts Bishops have gone all out to focus Catholics' attention on the more important issues...

Fortunately, Cardinal-designate Archbishop Burke is more forthcoming in his advice: "No, you can never vote for someone who favors absolutely the right to choice of a woman to destroy a human life in her womb or the right to a procured abortion."
But of course people say Burke was sent to the Vatican to shut him up, so it doesn't matter. Or does it?
