John Allen Nails It

In case you missed my colleague John Allen's article on our NCR homepage, please read it. And if, like me, you fit snuggly in the category "center-left" please take it to heart. Instead of griping, find areas of common concern, build relationships, and let those with a different ideological temperament see your love for the Church shine through.
