Catholicism and Politics?

How should Catholics get involved in political life? The Vatican will be discussing this topic on Friday. Read more about the upcoming meeting: Vatican to Study Bringing Catholics Back to Politics.

Calling our young adults home, too!

A new Knights of Columbus/Marist poll reminds Catholics of the strong need to reach out to the young adult community to combat cultural relativism.

“It is very important for the Church to understand the outlook of the next generation of adult Catholics,” said Supreme Knight Carl Anderson, in Rome for meetings at the Vatican. “Catholic Millennials support Church teaching in a wide variety of areas, including contentious issues like abortion and euthanasia. In other areas, the cultural relativism that Pope Benedict XVI has spoken so much about is very evident, and it confirms the wisdom of his attention to this question as central to the New Evangelization.”
