USCCB urges pastors to promote prayer campaign for religious liberty

Catholic World News - March 21, 2012

In a March 20 memorandum, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops urged pastors, diocesan officials, and state Catholic conferences to “mobilize Catholics … as quickly as possible” to take part in its prayer campaign for religious liberty.

Referring to “the ongoing struggle to protect religious freedom and conscience rights from various threats, including the coercive HHS contraception/sterilization mandate,” the memorandum described the prayer campaign a “sustained effort.”

    So now the faithful are being asked to pray to influence the politicians and courts. When will the bishops stop viewing the people of God as a political pressure group and begin to educate and lead them. Our culture is already too political, with the progressives teaching that government is the answer to all of our problems. But, what our culture really needs is holy men teaching that God is the answer, and the Body of Christ living out the gospel message for all to see.
