T HE S OLEMNITY OF THE M OST H OLY T RINITY
This last week the Supreme Court issued
an important ruling regarding an HHS mandate. You may recall that in 2012, following the
implementation of the Affordable Care Act, the
Department of Health and Human Services mandated the Catholic Church and other religious
organizations to facilitate health insurance coverage of sterilization, contraception, and drugs and
devices that may cause abortions.
Of course, the Catholic Church cannot participate
in the violation of the dignity of the human person. Any
form of contraception or sterilization assaults the dignity of
the sexual nature of the human person. Abortion obviously destroys the life of a human person.
Yet, the HHS threatened to penalize through the
force of the law, any religious organization that chose to
exercise their freedom of religion by obeying their conscience.
Thankfully, the Supreme Court decided to not decide on this case. Instead, they put it back in the laps of
the lower courts to provide an alternative that allows for
freedom of religion. Another significant part of their decision prohibits the government from imposing taxes and
penalties on the organizations for non-compliance to the
portion of the mandate in question.
To summarize all of this, for now the Catholic
Church and other religious organizations do not have to
choose between participating in serious immoral acts or
losing their insurance offered to their employees for their
welfare.
Let us give thanks to God for this significant
event. At the same time, let us remain vigilant in prayer,
fasting, and pro-active political participation to preserve
our religious liberty. Without it, our country has no hope of
thriving as a democratic republic.
MAY IS THE MONTH OF
MARY: EVER VIRGIN
"The purity, humility, and generosity of Mary
are in sharp con-trast to our wretchedness
and selfishness. To the extent that if we
realize this, we should feel moved to imitate
her. We too are creatures of God, and if we
strive to imitate her fidelity, God will surely
do great things in us. Our small worth is no
obstacle, because God chooses what is of
little value so that the power of His love may
be more manifest."
Join us as we pray the rosary before
every Mass during the month of
May.
Mary

M AY 22,
Esta última semana, el Tribunal Supremo
emitió una decision importante en relación con un
mandato HHS. Usted puede recordar que en el año
2012, a raíz de la aplicación de la Ley del Cuidado de
Salud , el Departamento de Salud y Servicios Humanos encomendó a la Iglesia Católica y otras organizaciones religiosas para facilitar la cobertura de seguro
de salud de esterilización, anticonceptivos, medicamentos y dispositivos que pueden causar abortos.
Por supuesto, la Iglesia Católica no puede participar
en la violación de la dignidad de la persona humana. Cualquier forma de anticoncepción o esterilización ataca a la dignidad de la naturaleza sexual de la persona humana. Aborto,
obviamente, destruye la vida de una persona humana.
Sin embargo, el HHS amenazó con penalizar a
través de la fuerza de la ley, a cualquier organización religiosa que opte por ejercer su libertad de religión obedeciendo a
su conciencia.
Afortunadamente, el Tribunal Supremo decidió no
decidir en este caso. En lugar, pusieron la decision a los tribunales inferiores para proporcionar una alternativa que permite
la libertad de religión. Otra parte importante de su decisión
prohíbe al gobierno de imponer sanciones a los impuestos y
las organizaciones en caso de incumplimiento a la parte del
mandato de que se trate.
Para resumir todo esto, por ahora la Iglesia Católica
y otras organizaciones religiosas no tienen que elegir entre
participar en actos inmorales graves o perder su seguro ofrecido a sus empleados por su bienestar.
Demos gracias a Dios por este acontecimiento significativo. Al mismo tiempo, vamos a permanecer vigilantes en
la oración, el ayuno y la participación política pro-activa para
preservar nuestra libertad religiosa. Sin él, nuestro país no
tiene ninguna esperanza de prosperar como una república
democrática.
MAYO ES EL MES DE Maria
MARIA: SIEMPRE VIRGEN
"La pureza, la humildad y la generosidad
de María están marcado en contraste
con nuestra miseria y el egoísmo. A medida en que si nos damos cuenta de esto, debemos sentir conmovidos a imitarla.
Nosotros también somos criaturas de
Dios, y si nos esforzamos por imitar su
fidelidad, Dios seguramente hará grandes cosas en nosotros. Nuestra valor
pequeño no es un obstáculo, porque
Dios escoge lo que es de poco valor para
que el poder de Su amor pueda ser más
manifiesto."
Acompáñenos a rezar el rosario antes
de cada Misa durante el mes de Ma-

For 2016-2017, over a million dollars is needed from this collection to
support our seminarian studying for the priesthood. To achieve this
goal, Cardinal DiNardo requests that you double the amount of your
regular church support for the weekend of May 28-29. If each contributor will do this, the needed subsidy will be met by this collection.
In gratitude for the incomparable gift of the Holy Eucharist which is
inseparably joined to the priesthood, please do your part to help the
archdiocese provide priests for the sake of your future by praying daily
for vocations and supporting this collection.
