The laity are to work for the sanctification of the world from within as a leaven. This is not an easy task. Society is becoming increasingly secularized and indifferent to the Word of God. This fact is confirmed by recent governmental decisions that have attacked religious liberty in our country. Religious liberty is not a Catholic issue only, but it involves every citizen of the United States.
This Web site contains resources on the protection of religious freedom. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) Web site and the Minnesota Catholic Conference (MCC) Web site are also excellent resources.
