Let it rest”

     How many hearts on the brink of anxiety and restlessness,
by this simple sentence have been made calm and happy?
     Some proceeding has wounded us by its want of tact;
Let it rest;no one will think of it again.
       A harsh or unjust sentence irritates us; let it rest;
whoever may have given vent to it will be pleased to see
it forgotten.
     A painful scandal is about to estrange us from an old
friend; let it rest, and thus preserve our charity and
peace of mind.

Defending Our Religious Liberty
September 10, 2017

In a letter to the U.S. Senate, the United States Conference for Catholic Bishops (USCCB) urged them to respect life when changing the health care mandate. The USCCB says no health care reform plan should compel us or others to pay for the destruction of human life, whether through government funding or mandatory coverage of abortion. Long-standing “Hyde Amendment” protections must extend to any relevant health care plan in order to prevent federal funding of abortion and not as a temporary fix or future promise.
