Time for Change, Trusting in God’s Plan, Courage to be Catholic in the Public Square 7.15.20

Congressman Dan Lipinski: Congressman’s Catholic high school commencement address reminded graduates their “first priority” was heaven; his challenge: “If you really want to change the world, you must choose to be Catholic and carry Jesus into the public square”; Catholic education taught him that “Jesus’ parable of the talents meant I had to use my gifts in a way that serves others”; ‘wherever God places you, do your best and don’t squander your talents’ 

Mary FioRito: In a time of major upheaval and sweeping challenges in life, how our Catholic faith sustains us and informs our actions for the common good and in our own families and personal lives; need clarifying coverage and public conversation about the anti-Catholic backlash to the AP story on the PPP loans; it’s not a ‘scandal’ and the reporting has been deeply deceptive; it’s an important and necessary religious accommodation.
