Sr. Catherine Patten When Cardinal Joseph Bernardin of Chicago founded the Catholic Common Ground Initiative in August 1996, he also released a statement, Called to Be Catholic. It decried "the polarization that inhibits discussion and cripples leadership" and challenged American Catholics to "reconstitute the conditions for addressing our differences constructively--a common ground centered on faith in Jesus, marked by accountability to the living Catholic tradition, and ruled by a renewed spirit of civility, dialogue, generosity, and broad and serious consultation." Since then, the Initiative has developed programs to support that vision. One of them is an annual conference, a weekend meeting that gathers Catholics with conflicting views on an issue to speak directly to each other. The Fourth Annual Cardinal Bernardin Conference in March 2000 proposed a twofold question: What is the role of Catholics in the public arena? What are the opportunities, obstacles, and obligations for the church's mission of evangelization in the contemporary United States culture? The Initiative then asked Michael J.
