Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
The day has come. We are on the cusp of redefining marriage in our state. The vote could go either way, and it is expected to be very close. Our representatives in both the Minnesota House and Senate must hear from us. You have a voice, and if you take only a few minutes to contact them, it will make a difference.
I urge you to exercise your right to effective representation. I urge you to contact your legislator and tell them not to redefine marriage. If you are not sure who your legislator is, you can call the State Capitol or go to the Minnesota Catholic Conference web site at www.mncc.org and click on the "Take Action" button at the top of the home page.
God is the author of life, and the author of marriage. Let us courageously defend his beautiful plan for marriage between one man and one woman.
Yours in Christ Jesus,
Archbishop John Nienstedt
