Our dictionary says that a catalyst is “an agent that provokes or speeds significant change or action.” After twenty years, we felt that it was time we gave our newsletter a name that truly reflects what the Catholic League is about.
Catholic League founder Father Virgil Blum, S.J. took a lot of criticism when he called Catholics “political eunuchs.” While some might quibble with his choice of words, there’s no debating the underlying truth: most Catholics have indeed been too reticent in their response to bigotry.
The Catholic League purposely does not share this complacency. It calls on all Catholics to actively protect and promote their religion, acting as responsible agents of change. In short, it calls on each and every Catholic to become a catalyst.
