PRLog - Feb. 23, 2012 - CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- TAN Books, an imprint of Saint Benedict Press, announced today plans to respond to the call of Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria, Ill to petition St. Michael the Archangel “for the freedom of the Catholic Church in America.”
St. Michael Prayercard
In response to a new federal ruling that will force many Catholic organizations to provide insurance coverage for sterilizations, contraceptives and “morning-after”
Chairman and CEO of Saint Benedict Press, Robert Gallagher, fully supports the call from Bishop Jenky and plans to encourage the effort by promoting distribution of St. Michael prayer cards through parishes nationwide.
“The Obama mandate creates a crisis of conscience for thousands of our nation’s employers, especially Catholics and other men and women of faith,” said Gallagher. “It is a radical infringement upon the free exercise of religion, a persecution of religious belief in the marketplace, and an attempt by a thoroughly secular Administration to remove the expression of one’s religious tenets from the public square.”
“The power of prayer cannot be underestimated as a means to combat this blatant attack on Catholic moral convictions,”
St. Michael the Archangel prayer cards and booklets have long been available from TAN Books, an imprint of Saint Benedict Press.
The publisher plans to launch an email campaign alerting customers of the legislation and announcing the availability of St. Michael prayer cards to parishes and individuals.
Saint Benedict Press offers Prayer to St. Michael leaflets in packs of 100 for $5.00; higher quality prayer cards are available in packs of 100 for $7.50 or 10 packs for $35.00.
