The following is the text of Bishop Malooly’s Fortnight for Freedom homily at the July 5 Mass at 11 a.m. in the Cathedral of St. Peter in Wilmington. The Fortnight, June 21-July 4, was the U.S. bishops’ national observance of two weeks of prayer focused on the role of faith in public life and the preservation of religious freedom in our society.
"This weekend we celebrate our freedom, our liberty from sin. We do it every time we stand around the altar.
"It was through Jesus’ death and resurrection that we have been saved and freed."
“I like that it talks about the covenant between humanity and the environment,” Bishop Malooly said last week after Pope Francis’ encyclical on ecology, “Laudato Si’, On Care for Our Common Home,” was published June 18 by the Vatican.
“This is what God expects of us,” the bishop said, “much as we have a significant relationship with God the Father through Jesus, we have one in our humanity with the environment because both are God-given.”
