Unfortunately, our priest chose to not read it today. :(
He spoke very briefly about it, essentially saying that it involved many difficult issues and that he/we need to analyze the HHS decision and its impact more before acting on it.
A copy of the letter will be in next week’s bulletin.
If he is a priest in the Diocese of Phoenix then he is direct defiance of the bishop.
Also, his refusal to read it is tell-tail. He is probably a liberal Democrat and dissident of the Church. Please tell us his name and the parish.
