I’ve overlooked the Fortnight for Freedom this year because of the rush events ranging from Pope Francis’ encyclical to the Supreme Court’s decision on gay marriage.

Let’s take today this weekend to meditate and pray over what it means to have the immense privilege of being a Christian who is also an American.

  1. Be free people! What do I mean? Perhaps it is thought that freedom means doing everything one likes, or seeing how far one can go…. This is not freedom. Freedom means being able to think about what we do, being able to assess what is good and what is bad, these are the types of conduct that lead to development; it means always opting for the good. Let us be free for goodness.

    And in this do not be afraid to go against the tide, even if it is not easy! Always being free to choose goodness is demanding, but it will make you into people with a backbone who can face life, people with courage and patience….

    Be men and women with others and for others: true champions at the service of others.

    -Pope Fr

  2. Rebecca, The War on Religion just got bigger. Here is what is likely to be the first of many such violations of 1st Amendment freedoms. First Oregon BOLI went after the Klein’s freedom of religion, now it is going after their freedom of speech too. I feel like I’ve lost my Country and my Constitution and I’m now living in a facist state.
