USCCB: HHS Proposal Falls Short In Meeting Church Concerns; Bishops Look Forward To Addressing Issues With Administration

D&C blogs: Religious Freedoms Tromped on Again Post by Janice O’Rourke.
I was very happy to see this article. Although, I’ll disagree with O’Rourke’s assertion that this is the Obama administrations “knee jerk reaction”. I happen to think Obama is leading a very concerted effort to minimize the influence of the Catholic Church.

Right on! Definitely read this.

Fr Z: Fr. Perrone’s Sexagesima Sunday sermon on spiritual pride.

    Well I skimmed the Catholic Courier this week. I usually use it to line the birdcage, but my bird died last month, so, it was just sitting there. I read about a speaker promoting Catechesis and New Evangelism. But like pretty much everything I ever read in the Courier, it sounded like a lot of frothy words saying nothing. Apparently the NYS Bishops have gotten together and created a document on it, and this speaker was sharing that. But nothing inspired me – in a topic that could/should be inspiring. I wonder if anyone else read it, and maybe I am missing something?

    Oh, and I couldn’t read the finances article. Just couldn’t stomach that.

    Ben, what did I find interesting this week? I think Friday’s snowstorm humbly reminds us that God is still in control.
