The United States Council of Catholic Bishops has again encouraged the Pope Paul VI Institute to celebrate the Fortnight for Freedom to focus on religious liberty and conscience rights for healthcare providers. If you're in the Omaha area, please visit the Institute and help yourself to the resource materials available outside the first floor elevator entrance. Everyone, near or far, are invited to pray the following prayers which will be said at the Institute each working day of the celebration. God bless America and efforts to preserve our First Amendments rights for all, especially healthcare providers.
Prayer for Saturday, June 23, 2018
Father, we know that not only must we be free to seek the truth, but that we must not seek the truth as isolated individuals. We need to find and pursue the truth that is common to all, so that all of us can share in the finding of truth and in the receiving of truth from others. Help government and medical institutions understand that they must protect our search for truth, our finding of truth, and our sharing in truth. Help those who govern us and who set standards for medical practice work to protect our freedom to communicate and discuss together the truth we believe we have found. We beg for the wisdom to grasp this moral knowledge and ask for your grace to put it into action. Amen.
Sts. Thomas More and Thomas a Becket, martyrs for freedom of conscience, pray for us.
