The mailings, issued by the lobbyist for the state’s Catholic bishops, also prodded Catholics to offer their ”highest praise” for lawmakers who opposed homosexual marriage during this spring’s Constitutional Convention, the Boston Globe reported today.

The letters made no reference to Election Day, Nov. 2, when all 200 seats in the state House and Senate are up for grabs. The mailings did not endorse particular lawmakers.
