Deacon Keith Fournier has a great article up on Catholic Online regarding his series on Politics here at the Institute of Catholic Culture:
“I write from the Washington DC area after having just concluded the first in a series of talks on Catholics and political participation for the Institute of Catholic Culture.
There was a large crowd. Many people stayed afterwards for ongoing conversation. They were eager to grow in understanding the implications of being a faithful Catholic citizen. What was crystal clear to me by the end of the evening was that we have the resources to prepare the kind of future political candidates this nation desperately needs in public office.
Many of my readers have been asking the question, should we even bother with Politics? My answer is a clear – Yes! Please, do not think I have one ounce of me naiveté left in me after all these years. I do not! However, I am convinced that Catholics, above all others, have an obligation to stay involved. To those to whom much is given, much is required.”
