Declaración (MCC): Declaración sobre el voto del Senado para redefinir el matrimonio en Minnesota

St. Paul, Minn (Mayo 13, 2013)—Hoy el Senado de Minnesota votó a favor de redefinir el matrimonio en Minnesota. El resultado, aunque se espera, no es menos decepcionante.

Los efectos sociales y legales completos de la redefinición del matrimonio comenzarán a manifestarse en los próximos años. La iglesia, por su parte, seguirá trabajando para reconstruir una sana cultura del matrimonio y la vida familiar, as well as defend the rights of Minnesotans to live out their faith in everyday life and speak the truth in love.

Although we were unable to convince legislators that Minnesota needed to strengthen marriage, not redefine it, we take comfort in the words of Our Lord Jesus Christ from today’s Gospel: “In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.” (Jn 16:33)

May St. José, patron of the universal church, and Our Lady of Fatima, intercede for the Church, the State of Minnesota, and our nation.
