I hope you are aware of the battle going on right here within the borders of our United States. As my own pastor Fr. Ed Fride recently said, “When they took God out of our schools and we did nothing. Next they took God out of our government, and we still did nothing. Now they are trying to take God out of our churches, and we are finally standing up.”
The USCCB is sponsoring Fortnight for Freedom across our country to pray, fast and rally for the cause of religious freedom and freedom of conscience. Make no mistake, this is a critical time, and years from now when your kids or grandkids ask what you did to to stop the erosion of our rights, you are going to be glad you got up off your soft couches and joined the faithful at these events.
People of all faiths are encouraged to attend. This is not a Catholic or Christian issue alone. If our government can tell Catholics we must violate our conscience, they can force the will of of the majority on any church temple, or synagogue.
You could check FortnightForFreedom.org to find events in your area. I will be participating at two of these rallies:
The first in Oklahoma City Oklahoma at the Cox Convention Center Saturday, June 23 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.
The second in Orlando Florida at Holy Family Catholic Church Sunday, June 24th at 7:00pm.
