Archbishop Chaput Closes Fortnight with Powerful Homily: What We Must Render Unto God and Unto CaesarJuly 7, 2012 1 Comment
On the Fourth of July, Archbishop Chaput delivered the closing homily before an overflow crowd gathered at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on the campus of Catholic University. The Liturgy, along with others in major cities throughout the Nation, was to “close” the “Fortnight for Freedom” called by the US Catholic Bishops. His choice as the homilist was not accidental. Nor can the critical and essential intention of this fortnight, the protection and preservation of religious freedom, actually come to an end.
