"What you did to the least of these, you did to me." Although Jesus said many things, His clearest concern was for the vulnerable. The vulnerable include our veterans, seniors, children and families.

When we got the word Saturday that the Tea Party activists were hurling racial and homophobic slurs at members of Congress as they walked into the House chamber, Catholics United sprang into action. In just 12 hours, we were able to mobilize 150 people of faith to join in a prayerful peaceful counter presence outside the Capitol building.
When Speaker Pelosi linked arms with Congressman John Lewis to march into the Capitol, Catholics United was at their side cheering them on.
And the members of Congress were grateful. As they walked into the chamber to make their historic vote, many of them stopped to thank us for our positive and life affirming witness. The highpoint came when a number of Catholic members of Congress heard about our witness and asked for some of our signs. A few minutes later, these members of Congress were on the balcony of the House chamber with our signs, cheering us on.
Our vigil was covered by CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, C-SPAN, the Wall Street Journal and many more news outlets. This was a great day for the American people and I'm proud that Catholics United was right there helping make it happen. Click here to see a video compilation from Sunday.

Charity Should Come Before Politics
Do you believe Christ taught us to first serve the poor and marginalized, no matter their beliefs? If so, we agree.
