USCCB Call to Prayer for Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty
in this Year of Faith May-June 2013
Last November, the bishops approved a Call to Prayer for Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty in this Year of Faith (www.usccb.org/life-marriage-liberty). As you are aware, one purpose of this call to prayer includes encouraging a greater appreciation for life, marriage, and religious liberty as well as building an awareness of the challenges facing the protection of those fundamental goods. To assist this purpose, the USCCB Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth is grateful for this opportunity to share the following resources below on the promotion and defense of marriage:
- Nationwide Bulletin Insert on Marriage and the Supreme Court (May-June 2013)
- Lead Messages on Marriage Redefinition
As we approach the rulings of the Supreme Court concerning the two marriage cases (DOMA and Prop 8)—anticipated by the end of June—we renew our gratitude for all you do in service to renewing a culture of marriage and the family.
