This is the title of a Commonweal podcast with Catholic historian and University of Notre Dame provost John McGreevy.
For most of its history, the Catholic Church clung to a deep skepticism concerning the legitimacy of democracy.
But that all changed during the twentieth century, explains Notre Dame historian and longtime Commonweal contributor John McGreevy.
On this episode McGreevy talks with Commonweal editor Dominic Preziosi about how that unlikely shift occurred, and offers suggestions for how the Church can help bolster our wavering faith in democracy today.
McGreevy argues that American Catholics have failed to respond in meaningful ways to our current democratic crisis.
McGreevy is the author of Catholicism: A Global History from the French Revolution to Pope Francis.
