On April 12, the Ad Hoc Committee on Religious
Liberty of the U.S. Conference of Catholic
Bishops (USCCB) issued a document, "Our First,
Most Cherished Liberty,” outlining the bishops’
concerns over threats to religious freedom, both
at home and abroad. The bishops called for a
“Fortnight for Freedom,” a 14-day period of
prayer, education and action in support of
religious freedom, from June 21-July 4.

The Ad Hoc Committee on Religious Liberty of the U.S. Conference of
Catholic Bishops (USCCB) have called for a “Fortnight for Freedom,” a
14-day period of prayer, education and action in support of religious
freedom, from June 21-July 4.
Archbishop Paul Coakley of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City has given us
his blessing in arranging special events here to highlight the importance of
defending religious freedom. Catholic parishes are being encouraged to do
the same, especially in cooperation with other Christians, Jews, people of
other faiths and all who wish to defend our most cherished freedom.
The fourteen days from June 21—the vigil of the Feasts of St. John Fisher
and St. Thomas More—to July 4, Independence Day, are dedicated to this
“fortnight for freedom”—a great hymn of prayer for our country. Our
liturgical calendar celebrates a series of great martyrs who remained faithful
in the face of persecution by political power—St. John Fisher and St.
Thomas More, St. John the Baptist, SS. Peter and Paul, and the First Martyrs
of the Church of Rome. Culminating on Independence Day, this special
period of prayer, study, catechesis, and public action would emphasize both
our Christian and American heritage of liberty.
