The Church’s work of evangelization and her contribution to the good of society are inseparable. As Catholics and as American citizens, we are called to do more than just vote, and called to do more than just follow a party.
America needs Catholics who are in love with our nation, and who act from the deepest convictions of their faith to make America the best version of herself. If we love God and our neighbor, we dedicate ourselves to the vitality of our society. We respond to the needs of our neighbors. We confront both physical poverty and spiritual poverty. Most importantly, we follow Christ.
As Stephen P. White says, we need Catholic citizens who are Red, White, Blue and Catholic. Think of this book as a Catholic guide to faithful citizenship for the 364 days of the year that aren’t the first Tuesday in November.
