Fortnight for Freedom - 2014

I’m late on this. June 21st began the 3rd Fortnight for Freedom initiative. Not sure how I missed it. Perhaps it was not publicized enough. Did you hear of it in church, was it in your bulletin?

Our religious liberties are in danger of being taken away. This is real. We need to pray, to know the issues and be actively involved. This is of great concern for me. As a student of history, I've learned how easy it is for a state to take away one’s freedoms and liberty; Nazi Germany is the prominent example. Think of Poland and the other Eastern European countries under communist rule. Please don’t be like an ostrich with your head in the sand, or next you may find yourself attending Mass in someone’s basement.

By the way, if you didn't hear of this in your parish, or the diocese made no efforts to bring this to you, you may want to ask your pastor, or even write the bishop and ask them why not.

Peace and all Good!
