Daily Message

"Detached from the truth about the human person, freedom deteriorates into license in the lives of individuals, and in political life it becomes the caprice of the most powerful and the arrogance of power. Far from being a limitation on freedom or a threat to it, reference to the truth about the human person – a truth universally knowable through the moral law written on the hearts of all – is, in fact, the guarantor of freedom's future."

– Blessed John Paul II, 1995 Speech to the UN


Religious Liberty - Articles


Pope Francis greets bishops as he arrives to celebrate Mass in the Cathedral of St. Sebastian. (CNS photo/Paul Haring)In the words of our Holy Father Pope Francis "religious freedom is more often affirmed than put into practice." Therefore, defending religious liberty and making it available for everyone, is everyone's responsibility. In doing this, we "guarantee the growth and development of the entire community."

So, let us work together to create "a culture of encounter" in which "believers and nonbelievers collaborate together to promote a world where injustices can be overcome and every person may be welcomed and contribute to the common good."

Stay up to date about current threats to religious liberty and help protect this fundamental right!
