US Bishops Release Newest Marriage Promotion Video

Aims to foster discussion on religious freedom

The U. S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage has released the next video in the series highlighting the unique meaning of marriage.

Entitled Made for Freedom, the newly released video features experts in various fields as well as personal stories illustrating the importance of marriage to society and the necessity for people to have the freedom to express their beliefs about marriage.

“Made for Freedom is designed to invite discussion about the importance of marriage and religious freedom in our society,” said Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, chairman of the Subcommittee. “Now that the institution of marriage has been redefined in civil law, it is even more important for all members of the Church to witness to the truth about marriage in the public square. We must have courage and act with conviction, knowing that authentic marriage is a gift to be treasured.”

Made for Freedom is part of an educational initiative entitled Marriage: Unique for a Reason which seeks to assist Catholics and all people of good will to understand the unique gift of marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

The first and second videos in the series are Made for Each Other and Made for Life, and there is a video in Spanish entitled El Matrimonio: hecho para el amor y la vida.

Each video can serve as a discussion-starter and resource for clergy, catechists, teachers, and other leaders. These resources are available online at www.marriageuniqueforareason.org and are for purchase through www.usccbpublishing.org.

A Made for Freedom study guide is forthcoming.
