If you haven't watched the PBS special hosted by Fr. Robert Baron, I will tell you, it is a treat not to be missed, a true pleasure. I've been a longtime fan of his Word on Fire but this is like a two hour feast for the ears, eyes and heart once a week.
The University of Notre Dame President, Fr. Jenkins, spoke up against the plan by the HHS to demand that all organizations and individuals who provide insurance, pay for contraceptives and sterilization and the RU-486ing babies pill or some variant, without exception, without acknowledging that this policy does not allow people of faith to adhere to their faith in their businesses, in their purchases, with their money. Bravo Fr. Jenkins! Today was the last day for public comment. I sent a letter.
This weekend is the Fall Festival. We're almost there. I'm hoping for good weather, for a good turn out and for smooth sailing. I promise I'll be napping all next week.
