Day #191: Dignitatis Humanae 9-10

Today we continue on in the Declaration on Religious Freedom.

Though religious freedom as rooted in the dignity of the human person is something that can be known through reason, in articles 9 and 10 we take a look at how this teaching is also rooted in Revelation.  Thus is takes on a special significance and importance for us as Christians to abide by.
