Dominicana , the publication of the Dominican students of the St. Joseph Province, is supporting the Catholic bishops’ Fortnight for Freedom by providing free access to “Salt and Light: An Interview with Chris Smith” from today until July 4th:

 “Salt and Light” is one of the feature articles from the Summer 2012 issue of the semi-annual print journal Dominicana . In the interview, Brs. Mario Calabrese, O.P., and Thomas More Garrett, O.P., discuss the pressing questions surrounding the public life of Catholics in contemporary America with one of our country’s great experts on the question, Congressman Chris Smith. Chris Smith has served in Congress since 1980 and has been co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus since 1982. He has also distinguished himself as an advocate of human rights in many different fields, authoring innumerable laws to protect Americans’ authentic freedom.

The interview treats the successes and failures of Catholic politicians, the HHS mandate, religious freedom, and more.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
