Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann:

"...your marriages well-lived can inspire others to desire faithful and committed love. Your self-sacrifice as Christian parents to lay down your life in service of your families can motivate others to experience the abundant life that results from your losing your life in service to others..."

The Catholic Benefit Association, representing several Catholic entities including the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas on behalf of Villa St. Francis Catholic Care Center, filed a suit against the federal government seeking relief from the HHS mandate. Read more here.
