Last week the Supreme Court released the official date for oral arguments in the cases brought by for-profit corporations challenging the HHS mandate.
Can you guess the date when the Justices will hear arguments about the foundational right to religious liberty - and freedom of every American to uphold the dignity of human life from conception…
Yes indeed – the Solemnity of the Annunciation – the day Catholics around the world celebrate the conception of Our Lord in the womb of the Blessed Mother.
Soon-to-be-saint John Paul II said in 1982: “In the designs of Providence there are no mere coincidences.”
The fate of the HHS mandate for thousands of business owners will soon be decided by the nine Justices of the Supreme Court.
But I can’t help but think God is reminding us that we are not powerless – that we actually have a very important role to play.
That's why CV will not only be filing our own amicus brief in the case, we are planning to lead a nationwide prayer campaign leading up to the Feast of the Annunciation. We call on all Catholics – and all people of good will – to join us in praying for an end to this attack on human life and religious liberty.
Nothing is more powerful than prayer.
A coincidence? I don’t think so.
