Human Rights Day

Second Sunday of Advent.

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:


December 10 is the international Human Rights Day. It commemorates the day on which, in 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

These human rights are inherent to every single human being for the simple fact that they are, that they exist as human beings. They are not created or granted by the state, much less by those who hold power, they are proper to each person. They are rights that stem from the natural order, from the fact that every human being has an incomparable dignity. These rights begin, of course, with the right to life and include the right to religious freedom. The state has a serious duty to protect them.
