"Jesus Christ has entrusted us with “good news” — that the human person is sacred and created in the image of God. As followers of Jesus, we have a duty to work with others to create a society that is more worthy of the dignity of the human person. That is why we fight for the rights of the person from conception to natural death. That is why we strive for justice for the immigrant and the worker, for the imprisoned, the hungry, and the homeless. That is why we defend the rights of the old and the sick to be cared for with love and compassion. We have a duty to make this a city of love and truth."
— Archbishop José H. Gomez
"Politics and the courts are important. But our religious freedom ultimately depends on the vividness of our own Christian faith – in other words, how deeply we believe it, and how honestly we live it."
– Archbishop Charles Chaput, OFM. Caps
