Civilize It: A Better Kind Of Politics

As we find ourselves in an election year, it is now more important than ever to promote civil and compassionate dialogue among our parishioners and for all people of good will. A fantastic resource to promote this goal is Civilize It: A Better Kind of Politics, an initiative from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
As the USCCB states on their website:
“‘Civilize It: A Better Kind Of Politics’ is [the USCCB’s] response to Pope Francis’ invitation [to seek ‘a better kind of politics, one truly at the service of the common good’]. Join us to model this ‘better kind of politics.’ Take the pledge [online] to commit to seeking the truth, building bridges, and finding solutions together that promote the common good. Individuals, families, and communities can participate.”
