My ancestors, when they came here in Black 47 were called papists, followers of the antichrist, disloyal, un American. they were described as people to be feared and not trusted. My great great great grandfather ascended Maryes Heights 150 years ago. He fought to save this Union and yet his church was burned his parish's school and students attacked. His grandson went to the Argonne and his great grandson to the Bulge. They fought against intolerance and for this country, their country.
Your forebears were good people and were wronged by bigots, however, they would be treated the same way today by the very people you defend. Check out the plight of the Boy Scouts for example.
In other words, your ancestors were real Catholics, people of faith...not a bunch of social-justice, baby-killing packer/munchers.
Without real Justice, "social justice" is just 'social'.
