USCCB offers bulletin inserts, prayer cards for 2012 Farm Bill

Catholic World News - June 06, 2012

The Department of Justice, Peace and Human Development of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has announced the publication of prayer cards “to help you pray and advocate for a 2012 Farm Bill that addresses domestic and global hunger and malnutrition.”

“The cards, which feature stories about the impact of US Farm Bill legislation on people in poverty in Nigeria, Ethiopia, Haiti, and India, are also perfect for use as bulletin inserts.”

    Doesn't the USCCB have a few other issues to be concerned about? Domestic hunger?? We thought the administration was going to focus on domestic obesity. And printing all those prayer cards --- is that environmentally sensitive?
