Partisan politics

In their publications about Faithful Citizenship, the bishops talk about being political without being partisan. Apparently one priest on Long Island did not get the memo.
At the Republican dinner tonight, the invocation just came from Msgr. James Lisante, pastor of St. Thomas the Apostle R.C. Church, West Hempstead, whose commentaries have appeared on TV and in newspapers.

He said:

"Bless all our Republican presidential candidates, and help us sort out all this election stuff with grace dignity and goodness and unity. Whatever their weaknesses or mistakes, Mayor Rudy and Senator John are even on a bad day far superior to what's on the other side."
