"The face of God is that of a merciful father, who is always patient... He does not tire of forgiving us if we know how to turn to him with a contrite heart... The Lord never tires of forgiving. We are the ones who tire of asking for forgiveness." (Angelus, March 17, 2013)
As this amusing poster illustrates.
The Church's institutions will still pay for insurance that covers the immoral practices of contraception, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs.
Is it not equally dictatorial of the Government to demand that insurance companies provide these services free of charge? No insurance company provides anything "free". It has to be paid for.
And what about the ordinary Catholic or other employer with conscientious objections to buying insurance for his/her employees that cover these services? How is his/her religious liberty respected?
It will be interesting to learn the bishops' considered view on this "compromise".
