"There is not a shadow of right on the general government to intermeddle with religion. Its least interference with it would be a most flagrant usurpation. I can appeal to my uniform conduct on this subject that I have warmly supported religious freedom."

For this I was born, and for this I have come into the world,
to bear witness to the truth.
In its core document, Our First, Most Cherished Liberty: A Statement on Religious Liberty, the USCCB Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty "urge[d] that the Solemnity of Christ the King-a feast born out of resistance to totalitarian incursions against religious liberty-be a day specifically employed by bishops and priests to preach about religious liberty, both here and abroad."
On the last Sunday of each liturgical year, we celebrate the Solemnity of Christ the King. Learn more about the origin of the feast and its connection to religious liberty.
Let us pray fervently that we will help others encounter anew Christ, our King, bringing the Gospel to the margins of society, that all might bear witness to Him before others.
