By Ashley Sadler, LifeSiteNews - Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis announced his state’s plans to fight the requirement, warning the sweeping mandate is “just the tip of the iceberg.”... “A year and a half ago we started with 15 days to slow the spread, and now it’s gone to get jabbed or lose your job,” DeSantis said... “Individuals should make informed choices about their own health care,” he added. “They shouldn’t be coerced into getting a jab.”

Charles Pope - The first reading in today’s Mass (1 Kings 17:10-16) speaks to us of the paradox of poverty: it is our poverty, our neediness, that provides a doorway for God to bless us with true riches. Our emptiness provides room for God to go to work... In our worldly riches, we feel we have “too much to lose”; the Gospel just seems too demanding. In our poverty, emptiness, and detachment from this world, however, there is a strange and unexpected freedom that makes it easier to step out in faith—and stepping out in faith is the only thing that can save us.
