Tuesday Tech Talk:
Catholic Voting Guide App

This past week the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy (CCC) published a Catholic Voting Guide application that works on most smartphone platforms – Android, Apple and Windows. The app is FREE, non-partisan and written concisely so it can be easily read in preparation for voting. So you have some idea who the CCC is, its president is Father John Trigilio, co-author of Catholicism for Dummies.  Father Trigilio appears regularly on Catholic Answers Live and is the long-time host of Web of Faith on EWTN. You can see an interview with Father Trigilio explaining the app on World Over Live HERE.

The app is organized into Six Vital Issues including Right to Life, Freedom of Religion, Sanctity of Marriage, Right to Own Private Property, Right to Access to Goods and War & Peace. The app is rooted in the teaching of the US Bishop's Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship and Cardinal Prefect, Josef Ratzinger's (now Pope Benedict) Worthiness to Receive Holy Communion.

For a more comprehensive review check out the one on CatholicMom. For a more complete explanation of the vital issues and how we are called to inform our decisions through our Catholic faith please view the interview with Cardinal Burke:
