In the weeks preceding the inauguration of the country's second Catholic president, the National Catholic Reporter asked other Catholic politicians, activists and scholars to offer advice to President-elect Joe Biden in a series that takes its title from Pope Francis' encyclical, Fratelli Tutti: "Building a Common Future."
Commentary: Biden knows the benefits of the Catholic education he received. We need him to acknowledge that Catholic schools contribute to our nation's greatness and the U.S. is a better place because of them.
Watch: NCR's Heidi Schlumpf and Michael Sean Winters join Sr. Simone Campbell and Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine for a conversation about the inauguration of President Joe Biden and NCR's Building a Common Future series.
Commentary: President Joe Biden's record shows he highly values Catholic social teaching, and it is in social teaching that we will find common ground to build sensible policies toward LGBTQ persons, a part of the body of Christ.
Commentary: Donald Trump had no grasp of the value of democracy and no ability to employ the symbolic power of his job to fulfill his responsibility as head of state. Joe Biden needs to fill that void.
