Seal of Confession, Immigration 7.8.19

  • Isaac Cuevas – Archdiocese of LA call to action on Tuesday’s hearing of ‘confessional bill’ at the Capitol. The Church is not trying to defend/protect Priests; the Church is defending the confessional.
  • Priests are willing to go to jail to protect the Sacrament of Reconciliation. We want to protect and defend children; we have to protect our rights as Christians in this country.
  • Immigration: as we hear about families trying to cross the border, against the law, we wonder why those laws can’t change. Immigration should be focused around fair changes to laws; allowing those who can come to contribute.
  • Outreach includes support for immigrants in learning the English language and laws; and education of natives that it’s our responsibility to hold our legislators responsible for fixing broken laws.
