This week’s “Super Tuesday” balloting in nearly two dozen states has the attention of some local Catholic newspapers where the contests are being held. Some examples: The Catholic Explorer in the Diocese of Joliet, Ill., covered how one parish offered a workshop on how Catholic voters should approach the state’s presidential primary. It also has an editorial on the importance of voting and a review of a new book on how faith has been practiced by occupants of the Oval Office since John F. Kennedy. And The Catholic Spirit in St. Paul, Minn., has a story on how participating in Minnesota’s precinct caucuses can bring Catholic values into the public arena.
