Archbishop Chaput on Being Catholic in America

Archbishop Charles J. Chaput
We’re Catholics before we’re Democrats. We’re Catholics before we’re Republicans. We’re even Catholics before Americans.  
— The Most Reverend Charles Chaput, Archbishop of Philadelphia

Just as our divine Founder, Jesus Christ is a "sign of contradiction" to mankind, His Church, in proclaiming the Good News to every generation, finds herself contradicting the prevailing view of the age as expressed by the contemporary culture. May we, as members of Christ's mystical Body, remain steadfast in countering all that rejects God and undermines the Church's mission of love.
