April is National Child Abuse
It is most appropriate that this observance is held during the Easter
season. There is no better time than Easter to celebrate the protection
of our most valuable gift from God--our children.
Holy Spirit, comforter
of hearts, heal your people's wounds and transform brokenness into
wholeness. Grant us the courage and wisdom, humility and grace, to
act with justice. Breath wisdom into our prayers and labors. Grant
that all harmed by abuse may find peace and justice.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen
Bishop Myron J. Cotta

Re: Follow-Up: SB- 128- Assisted Suicide
As you know, California state legislators introduced SB128: End of Life
Option Act, which physicians in our state to assist patients in committing
suicide by prescribing life ending barbiturates. It was heard and passed
through the Senate Health Committee on March 25th. On April 7th, it
also passed through the Senate Judiciary Committee and it is now sitting
at the Senate Appropriations Committee, where any probable amending
may take place before it goes to the floor of the Senate. It must pass
the Senate by June 8th.
Meanwhile, a new
bill, AB775: Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care
and Transparency Act (Reproductive FACT Act) has been proposed to require
facilities to advertise that every pregnant woman has the right to have
a child or have an abortion. This bill is aimed at affecting clinics
and centers that hold a pro-life viewpoint. More information on this
bill can be found at the Catholic Legislative Network website. Please
share information and updates with your parishioners and encourage them
to contact their representatives. The Catholic Legislative Network website
http://cqrcengage.com/cacatholic/home is a great place for you and your
parishioners to stay updated. By joining their email list they will
send updates regarding these bills/topics and other legislative efforts.

Catholic Church and Rights of Conscience
of the United States called for a renewed effort to change the HHS imposed
mandate that violates conscience rights & religious liberty. The
Administration's accommodation still forces objecting organizations
and individuals to pay for services that violate their religious
unjust rule has not been changed, but rather finalized.
promised some kind of accommodation, but only after
accommodation even at its best would still
force our institutions to violate their beliefs.
no exemption for objecting insurers, secular employers, for-profit
religious employers, or individuals.
