Just as the Israelites sought deliverance from enslavement, in contemporary society the dignity of all people is threatened by new enslavements to poverty, violence, injustice, additions. In what ways can Christians of all denominations work together to stave off these assaults to human dignity? Explain.

1st Place prize: iPad Air 2, 64GB

The top three essays will be edited and published in The Catholic Register.
