Healing a Fractured Nation

''For Such a Time as This''

2021 finds the United States politically polarized. Larry Payne sits down with Dr. Chris Wolfe, Assistant Professor of Political Science, to talk about healing the political divide and the challenges and opportunities we have in the election of Joe Biden, the U.S.'s second Catholic President. They speak on the need to listen and hear one another and difficulty that lies in supporting political figures who don't represent the fullness of the Church.

Dr. Burns discusses how neither of our two parties fits neatly into a Catholic worldview, the difference between the role of the bishops and the laity in partisanship, the abortion issue and active citizenship, the difference between Catholic parishes and Catholic universities and understanding our higher calling as Christians.
