How Do We Maintain Freedom in America?

Fr. Mike Schmitz

As Americans we are known for our celebration of liberty and our focus on “our rights.” We even have a landmark statue which embodies this important value. But what if our pursuit of liberty isn’t enough by itself?

Today Fr. Mike challenges us to take responsibility as citizens of this great nation. He encourages us to pursue a growth in virtue, character and religious faith; the faith on which our freedom as a democracy hinges upon.
