Designed to serve as a resource to Catholics, Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, makes an excellent guide in the call to political responsibility by providing summaries of four principles: 1) the centrality of the dignity of the human person; 2) the importance of subsidiarity; 3) promoting the common good, and 4) the importance of solidarity. The principles are then applied to twelve policy positions which are likely to come up in an election.
The 2015 limited revision integrates new policy developments in the US as well as new papal teaching from Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis.
