North Carolina: Catholic bishop calls for fasting to change Obamacare


Catholic Bishop Michael F. Burbidge of Raleigh, North Carolina, is calling on Catholics of his diocese offer the Lenten sacrifices of prayer and fasting for the intention of preserving "the religious liberty we cherish as Americans," declared a statement. Bishop Burbidge notes that the recent mandate issued by the Obama administration, directing most employers and all insurers to make available to their employees contraception, sterilization and abortifacients, is a serious threat to our Constitutional rights of religious freedom and freedom of conscience. He called for Catholics to observe the fast on March 30. Other Catholic dioceses in the U.S. are doing the same.
 
The bishop said "Through our prayers and observances of these Lenten disciplines,” Bishop Burbidge said, “may Our Lord watch over and protect the freedom and human dignity He has afforded to all people, and guide us always to be effective witnesses to Our Lord in all we do."
 
In addition to the individual prayer, fasting and abstinence of the faithful, Bishop Burbidge will celebrate a Mass at Sacred Heart Cathedral on March 30th for this special intention.
