A Message to the Administration from the Communion of Saints on the HHS Mandate

What the Obama Administration doesn’t seem to understand is a truth that needs only to be uttered in the calmest and softest of whispers.  The Church will never support the HHS Mandate, because the Church can never knowingly commit a sin.

Though She is chock full of sinners (100% certified, grade-A sinners, by the way), with low-end mucky-mucks like me (surely one of the greatest of them) spilling over her gunwales, She herself is supernaturally free from the stain of sin. And that’s not something that Joe Six-Pack just made up to make himself feel better, either. It’s a supernatural truth that needs no banging of gongs or clashing of cymbals to precede it.

Meanwhile, George Weigel Clarifies Things…

for folks who are used to getting all of their views from the sclerotic filters that trap and extinguish their abilities to think and reason. His article over on National Review Online, in as gentle a manner as is possible for Mr. Weigel, attempts to help make sense, for those who are still wandering in the wilderness of confused hero worship of the God-King, the bishops’ most recent statement. The one in which they say things like,

“We remain fully committed to the defense of our religious liberty and we strongly protest the violation of our freedom of religion that has not been addressed. We continue to work for the repeal of the mandate. We have grave reservations that the government is intruding in the definition of who is and who is not a religious employer . . .”

Why the Constitution Means A Lot To Me

Dr. Beckwith allows that this quote contained therein, choked him up,

“Our parents and grandparents did not come to these shores to help build America’s cities and towns, its infrastructure and institutions, its enterprise and culture, only to have their posterity stripped of their God given rights. All that has been built up over so many years in our Catholic institutions should not be taken away by the stroke of an administrator’s pen.” [Read more...]

Seeings How Jail Time May Be in Our Future…

Call me Mr. Practical, but do you have a free hour and forty-five minutes? If so, I found a few instruction videos you may want to have a look at.

Remember the Fifth Amendment? How about the Code of Conduct, where under the Geneva Convention you’re required to only give your name, rank, and serial number? Yes, think along those lines as we prepare for what just may be a Catholic Spring, even if only one of passive resistance. Remember Our Lord’s experience in Matthew Chapter 27?

Now Jesus stood before the governor, and he questioned him, “Are you the king of the Jews?” Jesus said, “You say so.” And when he was accused by the chief priests and elders, he made no answer. Then Pilate said to him, “Do you not hear how many things they are testifying against you? But he did not answer him one word, so that the governor was greatly amazed.

The HHS Mandate: Anti-Catholic and Un-American
By Rev. Robert Barron

Decades ago, priests, religious brothers and religious sisters were colorfully visible features of Catholic hospitals, serving as nurses, chaplains, business officers, and chief administrators. With the decline in vocations, this obviously religious leadership largely disappeared, but Catholic values, for the most part, still animated these institutions. What has begun to concern a number of observers is that, as today’s medical personnel, staffers, and administrators at Catholic hospitals have accommodated themselves more and more to secularist assumptions, even those values are in danger of disappearing.
