I found out a few days before Sunday that the letter was going to be read on Sunday... someone at my parish told me the bishop had instructed all Catholic priests in the Eparchy of Parma that the letter must be read aloud on Sunday. My pastor would have probably done so anyway -- with or without the mandate -- as my pastor is very outspoken about following church teachings on being pro-life. He integrated the letter into his homily about the Pharisees quite well.
When I visited my parent's house, they never heard of the letter. The first time they noticed it was in the bulletin I brought from my parish. I assumed that my diocese bishop must have specifically written the letter just for the Eparchy of Parma.
Now comes this article on FR saying all Catholic bishops in the U.S. were supposed to send out a variation of that letter. I wonder how many of them actually did so? Especially since the Archdiocese of Chicago is one of the biggest of the country and in the heart of Obama's power base.

Sadly, the letter wasn’t read in my church either.
Maybe our best bet is to write a letter to our bishops respectfully asking if it will eventually be read in our diocese.
