A Fortnight for Freedom

Mark your calendars and spread the word: U.S. bishops have called for “A Fortnight for Freedom.” This two-week period of prayer from June 21 to July 4 will begin with the feasts of St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher and end with Independence Day.

The purpose is to focus “all the energies the Catholic community can muster” for religious liberty. They also asked that, later in the year, the feast of Christ the King be “a day specifically employed by bishops and priests to preach about religious liberty, both here and abroad.”

More info can be found on the USCCB website.

    A FORTNIGHT FOR FREEDOM is a wonderful idea!
    I stand with you my Catholic friends. I feel so strongly about Pro-LIFE that I have seriously thought about becoming Catholic. Currently, I am unhappy with the decisions that my United Methodist Church has taken in regards to LIFE of unborn children & the whole “Social Justice” issue.
    I feel that Jesus wanted every Man and Woman to be charitable; that should not be taken away and then the Gov’t re-distributes (as they see fit). I also like the way I feel when I can help someone or a cause I believe in. (That is God’s gift to me.)
    Do you have signs or bumper stickers that I can help distribute about this event?
    I would love to hear from you.

    Thanks for your comment! I don’t have anything you can distribute, but you can read the USCCB Statement on Religious Freedom, and print pdf copies from the USCCB website. You might also check your local Catholic diocese website and see if they have anything special planned in conjunction with A Fortnight for Freedom.
