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
