Participate in June 22 Fortnight for Freedom Mass, rosary procession and rally

The U.S. bishops have once again called for a Fortnight for Freedom, a two-week period of prayer and action by the faithful from June 21 to July 4 to address the many current challenges to religious liberty.

I wonder why the faithful in my parish and our diocese are seemingly unaware of the upcoming Fortnight for Freedom, and the real threats to religious liberty we are currently experiencing. Is it because I have not done enough?

The global and national “war” against human dignity and religious liberty is raging. To varying degrees, there are acting forces that want to silence the absolute truths concerning Jesus being the Christ and the natural laws of procreation—every human being is precious, made in the image and likeness of God, from the moment of conception until natural death, and cooperating with God’s natural laws is necessary to maintain human dignity. These forces are willing to persecute those that hold these truths to be self-evident in order to silence them.

The bishops are not asking us to take up arms to defend ourselves, they are asking us to get on our knees for 14 days. Please find a way to participate in the Fortnight for Freedom with your family, parish and community.

A special 12:10 p.m. Mass on June 22 at St. John the Evangelist Church, 126 W. Georgia St., in downtown Indianapolis, rosary procession from St. John to Monument Circle, and a peaceful, prayerful rally at Monument Circle are planned.

Help spread the word, and come help make a difference.

God bless you!
