Before any decision is handed down from the Supremes on the HHS mandate, I just wanted to go public with the fact that my business will NOT be offering any such health care that includes requirements against the Catholic Faith. If they fine us-so be it.
Saints Cardinal John Fisher, Thomas More, John the Baptist and all others who have suffered persecution by those civil “leaders” who claim authority over the Church are not simply historical heroes of our Faith. They are role models for contemporary Catholics. It is our turn. Our time.
If the High Court, in God’s providence, rules justly and constitutionally, then many of us can rest-for a while. I sense this is just the opening skirmish of what will become a more protracted erosion of rights for people of faith and good will.
Thursday we will hear their decision. Friday, I will stand with thousands of other Catholics in my Kansas state capital with my Archbishop and three other Kansas Bishops, a faithful Catholic governor to publicly make our faith known.
Pray for us St. John Fisher, Thomas More, John the Baptist and all you saints in heaven!
