Religious Liberty

 

[Religious] freedom remains one of America's most precious possessions.  And, as my brothers, the United States Bishops, have reminded us, all are called to be vigilant, precisely as good citizens, to preserve and defend that freedom from everything that would threaten or compromise it.
                             - Pope Francis

Solemnity of Christ the King 2018 

In 2018, the Church faces pressures from without and crisis from within.  In addition to the challenges that Christians in a secular society must confront, the body of Christ must also tend to the wounds inflicted on the Church by priests and bishops who either committed acts of sexual abuse themselves or failed to respond to abuse with justice when they had the opportunity.  The Solemnity reminds the faithful that Christ reigns as king of the entire world forever.  Let us rededicate ourselves this year to recognizing the reign of Jesus Christ and his Sacred Heart in every aspect of our lives.
