Don't Forget: Fortnight For Freedom begins today.

 

 

2013 Fortnight for Freedom: June 21 to July 4

The U.S. bishops have called for a Fortnight for Freedom, a two-week period of prayer and action, to address many current challenges to religious liberty, including the August 1, 2013 deadline for religious organizations to comply with the HHS mandate, Supreme Court rulings that could attempt to redefine marriage in June, and religious liberty concerns in areas such as immigration and humanitarian services. - USCCB


To my knowledge, the Bishops haven't considered entrusting the Fortnight entirely to the Blessed Virgin, nor called on the faithful for a novena of Rosaries, culminating in the Consecration of the United States to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  That's too bad.

  1. Thanks Terry for the reminder. What a great idea you have by the way concerning the Entrustment and Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Perhaps a few of the Bishops who might read your blog could make this happen? Your Excellencies???

  2. Or even recommended some piece of legislation to correct the immediate problems....

    PS> Weekly rosary at the Capitol in Madison though the midterm election this fall I think.

  3. At our church they are kicking it off tonight with a Rosary after Mass. It would be nice if they offered it every day but it is still something.
