Worldly views troubling

I was deeply grieved to see (CR, Nov. 4) that Catholic registered voters cared more about the economy and less about protecting marriage than the rest of the registered voter population. While the economy is important, shouldn’t we be concerned about the things that are near and dear to the heart of God?

The world is falling apart around us, and there is no difference between the people of God and the people of the world. We are supposed to be in this world, but not of it. Perhaps if the people who made up the Catholic Church focused on things like modesty, purity, chastity and protecting marriage, God would heal the economy. In 2 Chronicles 7:14, the word of God clearly states, “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
