This is the short brochure version of Fr. Pavone's well-known longer booklet by the same name. It explains the Catholic citizen’s moral obligation to vote and take an active role in the nation's political process. It does not endorse any particular candidate or political party. It stresses the fundamental importance of the right to life, and guides us on how to properly assess candidates, issues, and parties, keeping our loyalty firmly rooted in Christ. Product #3469.

Some may ask if it is acceptable to sign a “Living Will.” Obviously, we cannot predict the future, or know in advance what form of sickness or disease we may be afflicted with in the years ahead. We do not know what treatments we will need or what will be available.
The "Will to Live" is an alternative to a "Living Will." This is a safer route to appoint a health care proxy who can speak for you in those cases where you may not be able to speak for yourself. This should be a person who knows your beliefs and values, and with whom you discuss these matters in detail. In case you cannot speak for yourself, your proxy can ask all the necessary questions of your doctors and clergy, and make an assessment when all the details of your condition and medical needs are actually known. That's much safer than predicting the future. Appointing a health care proxy in a way that safeguards your right to life is easy.
The "Will to Live" is different for each State. If you are ordering a "Will to Live" for someone in a different State than the address you give us, please let us know in the notes section so we can send you the correct form.
