As this reader paged through the November 16th issue of the Evangelist, the major stories for the week revealed an interesting enigma. “Bishops call tax bill ‘unacceptable,’ ‘unconscionable’” “Bishops urge Congress: Fund U, N. climate change agency” “Pope on climate change: Global cooperation needed” were among the headlines that dominated the week’s news. Yet, approximately 60% of white Catholics voted for the candidate (Source cited below) who supports the current tax bill and pulled the United States out of the Paris Climate Accords. Thus the enigma. Why is there such an apparent disconnect between the leadership and the typical white Catholic sitting in the pews of American churches?

Perhaps we could pray a decade of the rosary each day for vocations to THE PRIESTHOOD.It is as easy as counting on your fingers.
