Quince días para la libertad 2017: Freedom for Mission

The Fortnight for Freedom is a period of time when dioceses around the country arrange special events surrounding the topic of religious freedom. It begins on June 21, the vigil of the feasts of Saint Thomas More and Saint John Fisher, and concludes on July 4, Día de la independencia. During these fourteen days, dioceses direct the faithful’s attention to the importance of religious freedom through prayer and education, while also providing opportunities to take action.

This year’s theme is “Libertad para la misión.” The term, Misión, includes all acts and services that Catholics engage in, such as healthcare, Educación, and political advocacy, to name a few. Mission is a natural outpouring of a person’s love for God, and the freedom to perform these acts is essential to live as a member of the faithful within society.
