Just in case you have missed a few news items this week, let me recap them.
Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York, President of the US Catholic Conference of Bishops, wrote a letter to President Barack H. Obama regarding the Administration's seemingly poor regard for the sanctity of Marriage. Read the Archbishop's blog here. That post will eventually lead you to a .pdf of the entire letter here.
Elsewhere, here in Massachusetts, there is an initiative petition ballot drive underway to allow physician-assisted suicide to become legal in the Commonwealth. Cardinal Sean O'Malley recently spoke on this matter, and you can read his homily remarks in the context of a news article from The Pilot, the Catholic newspaper of the Archdiocese of Boston, here.
