As we mark the 4th of July, Archbishop Lucas tackles questions about the role of the Church in the political sphere. What does it mean to be a "faithful citizen"? How do we form our consciences? How should Catholics engage in public life?
Discipleship demands that all Catholics work with others to build a civic society aligned with Catholic Social Teaching in which all people are able to reach their fullest calling in both personal and community life. The Archdiocese of Omaha has a number of resources available to help inform our political involvement at https://archomaha.org/faithful-citizenship/.
