Religious Liberty, Family, & Authentic Promises

A Lawyer Priest, Fr. Sammie L. Maletta, Jr. is pastor of Saint John the Evangelist R.C. Parish, Saint John, Indiana. Passionate about his love for the Lord Jesus, Fr. Maletta has felt betrayal by current government administrators in their promises of protected faith and conscience concerns.

Religious liberty is eroded by government health care requirements on reproductive services that terminate life. Below is a sermon that Fr. Maletta preached on February 5, 2012 that tackles this very real problem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltTd81XpDnc.

"First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists, but I was neither, so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Jews [Catholics], but I was not a Jew [Catholic] so I did not speak out. And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak out for me."
-- Dietrich Bonhoeffer

More than two thousand years ago, Jesus proclaimed victory over the grave to give eternal life for all who believe in him. In John 5:24 he promises that "Whoever hears My Word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life."

It is finished.
