This 2019 limited revision of Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship includes a new Introductory Letter and gives pastoral guidance to help Catholics in the United States exercise their political responsibility well.

The Introductory Letter responds to new social and political developments in the United States, especially with regard to respect for human life and dignity, as well as the ongoing guidance and teachings of Pope Francis. The content of Part I, II, and III of this teaching document remains unchanged from the 2015 statement. This revision also includes a new Prayer for Faithful Citizenship.

This important document on political responsibility, read in its totality, will guide Catholics as they discern how to be faithful citizens. Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship continues to present to the Catholic faithful, and all those of good will, an up-to-date guide to help form consciences as they participate in the civil order and public life.

5 of 5 Faithful Citizenship March 25, 2020
Reviewer: Susan Hughes from Harrison, NJ United States  
While we are called to be holy, we are also called to be responsible citizens, and to serve the Lord and others in our communities. The responsibilities that come with citizenship are daunting, and sometimes present conflicts with the religious principles that we hold.  When the government is separate from religion, as it should be, there are always going to be areas in which the two diverge, and those intent on being both good citizens and good people of faith find themselves with a dilemma. This book addresses those conflicts. The best part of this little book is that it doesn't attempt to tell people what those decisions should be, but rather how they can take the steps needed to make their own decisions, based on conscience, and fulfill their roles as citizens and people of faith.
