The word catholic is defined as all embracing. However there are some Roman Catholics who are single issue voters. The paradigm is changing. Fr. Dan Horan OFM who represents the emerging millennial Catholic conscience is one of the reasons I have hope for the future.

There’s far more to being pro-life than being against abortion. Care for the immigrant, the refugee, climate justice, income inequality, human trafficking, universal affordable healthcare are issues that resonate with a majority of Americans and too with today’s young Catholics.
