John Carr, director of the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life at Georgetown University, has put together another panel discussion in his "Pope Francis, Catholic Social Thought, and American Public Life" series that may be of interest to NCR readers. 

Seeking the Common Good in a Time of Polarization features a panel of Catholic publishers and editors, including NCR's CEO/President Caitlin Hendel. The event is scheduled for Oct. 16, 7-8:30 p.m. in Gaston Hall on the Georgetown campus. RSVPs are required. 

Other members of the panel include: Fr. Matt Malone, S.J., editor-in-chief of America, Paul Baumann, editor of Commonweal, R.R. Reno, editor of First Things, and  Greg Erlandson, president and publisher of Our Sunday Visitor

Questions they are to explore are: How do Pope Francis’ leadership and Catholic Social Thought unite and divide Catholics on public policy? How deep is ecclesial and ideological polarization and how can it be overcome? What are roles of the Pope, bishops, lay leaders and Catholic media in applying Catholic Social Thought to issues of human life and dignity, economics and family life, war and peace? What is “faithful citizenship” today?
