a) Be a sucessor of the apostles (as Bishop Thomas Paprocki is) and have something profound and urgent to say about a question in the public eye.
b) Collaborate with lay Catholics who use social media to promote good messages (like CatholicVote).
The fight to protect marriage, of course, does not end with simply proclaiming the truth. Bishop Paprocki is calling upon faithful Catholics to join him in Springfield, IL on February 20th for a Preserve Marriage Lobby Day at the capitol to oppose gay marriage and call out the hollow religious liberty protections being offered by the Democrats in the current bill.
If you live in Illinois, please take action to contact your representatives, and if you live near Springfield please show up and support marriage and religious freedom.
When lay catholics join in the mission of our bishops to protect the faith and stand up for the civil rights of all catholics and people of good will, we can and do win.
