Dignitatis Humanae
The Second Vatican Council's Declaration on Religious Liberty

How do we understand freedom, truth, and the relationship between church and state?

Life, Marriage & Liberty: Pray, Fast, Act

Catholics across the nation are being encouraged to pray, fast and act for renewed protection of religious liberty and to rebuild a culture favorable to life and marriage.

Religious Freedom

Pope Benedict XVI has said, "Any tendency to treat religion as a private matter must be resisted." We are called to pray and act to protect the freedom of religion.

Conscience Protection

The freedom of conscience for which we are fighting is the freedom to live our lives according to our faith, without having to compromise that very same faith.

Religious Liberty

If we are not free in our conscience and our practice of religion, all other freedoms are fragile.
