Defending Marriage -- Two New, Downloadable, Resources from USCCB

Two cases before the U.S. Supreme Court raise the question of the definition of marriage in law even as states try to redefine marriage: 

"It is the height of irony that the Minnesota legislature decided, and the governor signed into law, the redefinition of marriage just after we celebrated the unique gifts of mothers and women on Mother's Day," stated San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone. He chairs the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' (USCCB) Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage.

"We know that now is the time to redouble our prayers, efforts and witness. The truth of marriage is not going away," 
Archbishop Cordileone said. "We know what it takes to work toward a culture of life even in the midst of laws that work against us. 
The same is true for rebuilding a culture of marriage."

The USCCB has issued two new resources on this issue:

•"Marriage and the Supreme Court" information for clergy and parishoners to use in anticipation of the Supreme Court ruling on Proposition 8
•"Messages on Marriage Redefinition" - concise points that can assist the clergy and laity, in discussing marriage with parishoners, family and friends.
