"The Fortnight exists to remind us what an exceptional gift we have in our nation's guarantees of religious liberty. But those guarantees are only as strong as our zeal in insisting on them; and in our determination to fight hard for them in our legislatures and courts."
– Archbishop Charles Chaput, OFM Capuchin, Archdiocese of Philadelphia
