Fortnight For Freedom

Check out this Youtube video that I first saw on Katie's NFP and Me blog.

Today's reflection:  "The Vatican Synod declares:  That the human person has a right to religious freedom.  This freedom means that all men are to be immune to coercion on the part of individuals or of social groups and of any human power, in such wise that in matters religious no one is to be forced to act in a manner contrary to their beliefs.  Nor is anyone to be restrained from acting in accordance with his/her own beliefs, whether privately or publicly, whether alone or in association with others, within due limits.

The Synod further declares that the right to religious freedom has its foundation in the very dignity of the human person, as this dignity is known through the revealed Word of God and by reason itself.  This right to the human person of religious freedom is to be recognized in the constitutional law whereby society is governed.  Thus it becomes a civil right."

For more information please go to The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
