On Monday evening, after a long day of work, representatives, senators, staffers, and students from across the political spectrum came together for a discussion on bipartisanship and civility within politics. The conversation took place during a critical time for our nation. The divide of partisan politics seems to continue to relentlessly expand, striking a wedge in relationships across the country. However, if we are currently in a dark moment historically, the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life's Salt and Light event at the Capitol last night was a beacon of hope.
