About this title


As Catholics in the modern world, we have certain responsibilities to our nation, our families and ourselves. These can be a matter of considerable debate. Popular culture tells us that we shouldn't speak about religion and politics in the public arena. But what is our authentic role as Catholics in today's world? Bishop Olmsted explains what is appropriate in our secular world and how we should seek to influence our nation and the political process, in light of our Catholic faith. Learn: -How Catholics can contribute to a culture of life. -What issues can ban Catholics from Holy Communion. -How to fight against secularization in our society and the misrepresentation of faith in public. -What role Catholic doctrine should play in the public square. -What the non-negotiable issues are for Catholics involved in politics. -What main responsibilities Catholics have to their families.

About the Author:

Most Reverend Thomas J. Olmsted was ordained a priest of the Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska, July 2, 1973. He was installed as the Bishop of the Diocese of Phoenix, December 20, 2003. Prior to his arrival in Phoenix he served as Bishop of Wichita, Kansas after being ordained Coadjutor Bishop on April 20, 1999. Before serving in Wichita, he served as the Rector / President of the Pontifical College Josephinum, a Catholic seminary in Columbus, Ohio. Since 1974, he has been a member of the Jesus Caritas fraternity of priests, and thus has been deeply influenced by the witness and wisdom of Charles de Foucauld and by the prayers and encouragement of many brother priests. For sixteen years, Bishop Olmsted lived in Rome, Italy where he obtained a Master of Arts in Theology, a Doctorate in Canon Law, and worked more than nine years, in the Secretariat of State of the Holy See. During the nine years of serving in the Holy See, he resided at the Pontifical North American College and assisted seminarians with spiritual direction. He speaks and writes Italian and Spanish. Having been reared on a family farm on the Kansas Nebraska border, he attended a single-room grade school near Oketo, Kansas, and a small rural high school in Summerfield, Kansas. His first contact with Catholic schools came when he entered St. Thomas Seminary College in Denver, Colorado, from which he graduated in 1969, with a B.A. in Philosophy. His interest in nature and rural life continues, while his many years in Rome has fostered a devoted loyalty to the universal Church.
