August 30 - It’s refreshing to see that both parties are inserting moments of prayer in their conventions and the Catholic Church seems rather prominent. The Jesuit writer Fr. James Martin addressed one convention and Cardinal Dolan of NY will pray with the other. Regardless of your leanings, we can impact the issues and our nation's fragility by conducting all discussions as people of the Gospel... believers who are centered on justice and rooted in peace who advocate without tearing down. How we debate is often as crucial as our stance itself.
