After a dramatic election amid a raging pandemic, racial violence, economic collapse, and historic national divisions that have threatened democracy in the U.S., Joe Biden was elected the 46th president of the United States. For Catholics, this is a momentous occasion, as he is the second Catholic to be elected to the nation’s highest office. The triangle of relations between the White House, the Vatican, and the U.S. Catholic Church is an essential dimension for understanding the political and religious urgency of this moment, and its impact on social justice issues.
We invite you for a conversation with the author, historian and theology professor Massimo Faggioli (Villanova University), along with Professor Michael Baur (Fordham University), Professor Laura Olson (Clemson College), and Christopher White (National correspondent for National Catholic Reporter).
This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, parents, students, and the public.
