Every election cycle is an opportunity to renew what Pope Francis calls the bonds of “civic and political love,” the commitment we have to one another as fellow citizens. In The Catholic Vote in 2020, Catholic Theological Union’s Professor Steve Millies will lead a conversation about citizenship in the light of Catholic faith, paying special attention to the 2020 election season.
