Happy Fourth of July!

For the Christian people of America conversion to
the Gospel means to revise “all the different areas
and aspects of life, especially those related to the
social order and the pursuit of the common good.”
It will be especially necessary “to nurture the growing
awareness in society of the dignity of every person
and, therefore, to promote in the community a
sense of the duty to participate in political life in
harmony with the Gospel.”

—Pope John Paul II, The Church in
America (Ecclesia in America), no. 27
