Spanish bishop encourages Catholics to participate in politics

.- In a pastoral letter entitled on political life, Bishop Luis Guitarras Martin of Segovia has called on Catholics “to get involved in politics based on the demands of the faith.”

In his letter, the bishop explained that “this does not mean that we must belong to a particular political party, but rather that whichever party we belong to, and even if we don’t belong to any, we must follow the guidance and dictates of our faith.”

The Christian faith, he noted, does not provide concrete answers to political endeavors, which are governed by their own principles and rationale, but it can infuse them with humanity and with love.

To illustrate his point, Bishop Guitarras cited a favorite saying of St. John of Avila:  “If you are not rich in love, forsake politics, since it is a war that demands much love.”
