The Archbishop's Letter

The recent HHS mandate requiring every employer (including the Catholic Church) to provide insurance which offers completely free sterilization, abortion-inducing drugs and contraception to all employees (whether they want it or not) has caused our bishops to speak out with one voice, and they say, "No!"  We have some difficult times ahead of us, and the bishops have asked that we fast and pray, with the intention of turning back this assault on faith and conscience.

Our own Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller has issued a letter which is to be read out at all Masses in the archdiocese this weekend.  I have uploaded a copy of it at this link.
