"The day when Americans could take the Founders' understanding of religious freedom as a given is over," said the Archbishop Chaput. "We need to wake up." - See more of this article at CNS here. And what it is and what can I do for the "Fortnight of Freedom"? here.
The “Fortnight of Freedom” was called for by the US Catholic Conference of Bishops (USCCB), in their words, “a two-week period of prayer and action, to address many current challenges to religious liberty, including the August 1, 2013 deadline for religious organizations to comply with the HHS mandate, Supreme Court rulings that could attempt to redefine marriage in June, and religious liberty concerns in areas such as immigration and humanitarian services.”
In a nut shell, our freedoms in the US are under attack. If we don't realize this we are either deceived, blind, or simply apathetic. Please make yourself aware and take this to prayer, fasting and action within your capabilities as a responsible citizen of the USA (though "strangers and sojourners" here) and a faithful citizen of Christ's Church on earth, the "Church militant."
The Fortnight began with the feast of St Thomas More for a reason, see why here. May God bless our nation with the grace to be courageous.
St Thomas More, pray for us!
