This week we celebrate Religious Freedom Week, when we thank God for our great country and its protections for people of all faiths to worship and follow their consciences without fear. The theme for the week is “Life and Dignity for All”. Religious freedom grants us the ability to live our faith in public, especially in service of all people—ensuring that their lives and dignity as children of God are upheld. When we love the Lord, we are inspired to help the poor and protect the most vulnerable. So, when threats to religious freedom arise, the ability of people of faith and of countless religious charities to serve people in need is threatened. Therefore, may we pray and act to safeguard our first freedom and the greatest of liberties: religious freedom.
