Catholic Senator Tim Kaine joins Hillary Clinton on the Democratic ticket

The Jesuit-educated Harvard Law School graduate and former governor of Virginia was selected after a months-long process. Introduced in Florida as her running mate, Senator Kaine said, "Hillary knows that we're stronger together, when we work together, when we pull together, when we worship together. We're stronger!

Trump's campaign of fear

Editorializes the NY Times, "Mr. Trump emerged as a political force with the racist claim that President Obama was not born in the United States. He has since sought advantage by playing to disaffected people’s worst instincts, inventing scapegoats and conspiracy theories, waging and inciting vicious attacks on those who disagree with him. He is a poisonous messenger for a legitimate demand: that an ossified party dedicate itself to improving working people's lives, instead of serving the elite." more »
Celebrating the life of a patriotic Catholic resister to the killing fields of WW-I

Ben Salmon was a devout Denver Catholic who refused to fill out a draft questionnaire before WW-I, and was sentenced to death.

"He gave us strength in time of trouble, wisdom in time of uncertainty, and sharing in time of happiness. He will always be by our side...[May he] be remembered simply as a good and decent man, who saw wrong and tried to right it, saw suffering and tried to heal it, saw war and tried to stop it. Those of us who loved him and who take him to his rest today, pray that what he was to us and what he wished for others will some day come to pass for all the world. As he said many times, in many parts of this nation, to those he touched and who sought to touch him:

Some men see things as they are and say why. I dream things that never were and say why not."

Sen Edward M. Kennedy (1932-2009)

"Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time. But know this, America: They will be met.

"On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord.

"On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn-out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics."
