Is it possible to be both a faithful Catholic and a faithful American?
The gospel for this Sunday seems very poignant to a discussion of faith, politics, and life. As Christians, we must never forget that we have one King. Jesus is our Lord. To be a disciple we must surrender all to Jesus. This is what should inform our outlook and how we involve ourselves in politics.
Today I would like to introduce you to Fr. Mike Ackerman who serves as the Vocations Director for the Diocese of Pittsburgh. He answers the question, “Can we both faithful Catholics and faithful Americans?” I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section of the video.
