Joe, Richard, Carl, Rod, Rich, Skip, Mark, Dan, Sal and Steve all helped make a nice time of it. Thanks to all who are helping Mark, Al and Skip with the Christmas card and magnet sales.

Deacon Richard Melrose My Brothers and Friends; I would strongly encourage you to contact your Senator(s), as I have done with the letter below, based on information I received from the Catholic Legislative Network. "Senator; I am writing to encourage you to strongly consider endorsing and supporting the Hatch-Nelson Amendment. Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Ben Nelson (D-NE) have submitted an amendment to the health care reform bill that -- like the Stupak amendment in the House -prevents the Senate version of reform from mandating abortion coverage or providing federal funds for coverage that includes elective abortions. Those wishing to purchase abortion coverage may continue to do so with their own private funds, but not in the government-run health care plan ("community health insurance option") or with the help of federal subsidies. I personally and morally am opposed to anyone being allowed to murder an innocent child, but for my tax dollars to assist them in that criminal activity, cleverly disguised as "choice" is repugnant and reprehensible. The US Bishops are strongly urging the Senate to incorporate essential

In a November 20 letter to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. bishops urged essential changes in the Senate bill: to retain federal policy on abortion funding and conscience protection; to protect access to health care for immigrants; and to provide for adequate affordability and coverage standards. The bishops said: "Sadly, the legislative proposal recently unveiled in the Senate does not meet these moral criteria." I am prayerfully hopeful that you will review, support and Council Goes Digital endorse the Hatch-Nelson Amendment." In this age of digital media, instant messaging, and web Very Respectfully, interaction, no group can move forward without first Deacon Richard Melrose logging on and joining in.
