Fortnight for Freedom

Government cannot take away true freedom, Archbishop Chaput teaches

This Catholic News Association story records the end of a 2-week campaign in the U.S.

Government cannot give or take away the ultimate freedom found in obedience to God, Philadelphia Archbishop Charles J. Chaput said during his homily at Mass at the close of the U.S. bishops' "Fortnight for Freedom."

"True freedom knows no attachments other than Jesus Christ," Archbishop Chaput said in his July 4 homily at Washington, D.C.'s National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. "True freedom can walk away from anything: wealth, honour, fame, pleasure," he said. "It fears neither the state, nor death itself."
