God governs. He invites us all into this effort. We were made to give ourselves in love and service to the other; to form families, associations, societies and communities of interest - and to build mediating associations through which governing occurs most effectively, compassionately and fruitfully. Each in their proper role, the participants in the overall governing enterprise are empowered to serve the common good while respecting the role of the individual,enterprise, freedom, and the primacy of the family. Catholics should affirm that we are not fully human unless we are in relationship with one another. We are, by both nature and grace, social.
