Cleansing Fire

Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

We Remember; We Forget; We Remember Again …

June 21st, 2018, Promulgated by Diane Harris

June 22, 2018 will be the 6th Anniversary of launching Festival for Freedom (FFF) in response to the USCCB’s asking for a major effort to be expended on behalf of Religious Liberty, especially for the unborn. We have just experienced in the last 18 months (500+ days) the most significant achievements in modern memory on behalf of many of the objectives articulated as the basis for FFF, from reducing and even eliminating the unchecked spread of the abortion industry (e.g.  Planned Parenthood), to vindicating a convicted baker who refused to bake a same-sex wedding cake, and more.  Yet, many of those who called for such progress have hardly noticed what has been achieved, turning from the objectives of true freedom to the nitpicking opinions of prudential judgments, and losing the momentum created by laity responding to the call for action. It is time to revisit the goals of FFF, once closely identified as responding to the USCCB’s call, with the effort and response now nearly forgotten.

The website for Festival for Freedom continues to be maintained (through 2014) at and while the blog and calendar are inactive, the photo gallery, videos and speakers’ content is easily retrievable with a click.  Enjoy the walk through memory lane. Each album can be viewed directly on the website. St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More, martyrs to religious freedom, pray for us.
