The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is holding its annual Fortnight for Freedom, a special time for prayer, education, and action.  The Fortnight includes the 14 days from June 21 – the vigil of the Feasts of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More, great martyrs who remained faithful in the fact of religious persecution – to July 4, Independence Day. The theme for 2015 is “Freedom to Bear Witness,” which focuses on how religious freedom enables us to bear witness to the truth of the Gospel.
