There is little discussion about the principle of subsidiarity in Catholic circles and virtually none in the national political debate. Many Catholics do not even know that there is such a principle within the Social Doctrine of the Catholic Church. Instead they have borrowed charged rhetoric from both the political left and the political right for far too long and failed to offer their unique contribution to the common good. We need an intelligent discussion of the underlying issue – what constitutes “good” governance and Catholics can and should take the lead.

The House of Representatives will try again to repeal the PPACA (ObamaCare) on Wednesday, July 11th. This will mark the 31st time to repeal the law in its entirety that the House of Representatives has attempted to repeal this disastrous health care law.
Stand in front of a mirror and ask the person you see this question: “When your government looks at you, do you want it to see a creature of an all powerful State, or do you want it to see a creation of an almighty and eternal Father to whom both you and the officials of that government will be accountable someday?”
It became official yesterday. As the US Supreme Court upheld the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, a.k.a.
