  • "In the painful experience of these [migrant] brothers and sisters, we see again that of the Baby Jesus, who at the moment of birth did not find lodging and was born in a cave of Bethlehem; and then He was taken to Egypt to flee from Herod’s threat" (Pope Francis, 12/9/16).

    • "In order for celibacy to be a truly free choice, seminarians must be led to understand, by the light of faith, the evangelical power of such a gift.176  At the same time they should be able to esteem correctly the values of the married state: 'Marriage and celibacy are two states of authentic Christian life.  Both are specific expressions of the Christian vocation'177" (Congregation for the Clergy, The Gift of the Priestly Vocation, 12/7/16, p. 48).

    • Pope Francis, Message for World Day of the Sick (2/11/17)
    • Aren't these efforts tantamount to assaulting the conscience rights of health care workers in mental health services? (12/23/16)
    • "Please send a message to the AMA today asking them to support the dignity of every person and the need for supportive and comprehensive end of life care" (Pa Catholic Conference).
    • While the Church has always constantly taught the absolute prohibition of contraception, much of what gets passed off as "contraceptive" can work in an abortifacient manner.  Ads for providers of abortifacients/contraceptives should NOT be appearing in parish bulletins or other publications.  And potential abortifacients have no place in Catholic health care!  Email USCCB President Cardinal DiNardo, USCCB Pro Life Chair Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop Chaput, and National Catholic Bioethics Center President John Haas, PhD, STL, to ask for an end to ANY use of emergency (so-called) contraception in Catholic hospitals.
