USCCB: fast, take action on behalf of religious liberty
Catholic World News - March 08, 2013
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has asked Catholics to offer their fasting and abstinence from meat on March 8 “for all people of faith who fight to preserve religious freedom, that the Lord will strengthen their resolve to hold firm in their witness.”
The bishops’ conference is also asking Catholics to contact members of Congress on behalf of the recently-introduced Health Care Conscience Rights Act. “The bill would protect Americans’ First Amendment rights by providing a full exemption for all those whose religious beliefs run counter to the HHS mandate,” a USCCB flyer states. “The bill would also protect institutions and individuals from forced participation in abortion.”
