Cardinal Dolan connects vote for Romney with better faith

 | 

New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the head of the U.S. bishops’ conference, has insinuated that Catholics who voted for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney are more adherent to their faith than those who voted for President Barack Obama, a Democrat.

Dolan, who is seen by many as the de facto leader of the country’s some 77 million Catholics, makes the connection between faith and politics in a Nov. 15 column in his archdiocesan newspaper, Catholic New York, titled “Looking Back at Election Day.”

Can CEOs be a witness for homelessness?

 | 

The National Coalition for the Homeless has designated Nov. 10-18 as National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week.

This week is observed around the country in varying forms through events, advocacy, and community service. I was fortunate to help organize an event this week at The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC.

While most of the week is spent working directly with the underserved, we wanted to spend one night lifting up the voices of those on society’s margins.
