Irondale, AL (EWTN) – Friday, Oct. 13 marks the 100th anniversary of the capstone of the Fatima apparitions: the Miracle of the Sun, where the sun appeared to hurtle towards the earth.

EWTN Press Release on HHS Mandate Revisions



EWTN Statement On Today’s HHS Mandate Revisions


Irondale, AL (EWTN) – The following is a statement by Michael P. Warsaw, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of EWTN Global Catholic Network on the October 6th announcement of revised rules for the HHS Mandate:

“For more than five years, the HHS contraception mandate has forced Americans to violate their deeply held moral and ethical principles, without regard for the Constitution's guarantee of religious liberty. EWTN filed a lawsuit against the government in February 2012, just days after the mandate rules were first published and we have have continued to fight for justice alongside many courageous believers. We are encouraged by today’s announcement. 

“Together with our legal team, we are carefully considering the exemptions announced today and the impact this may have on our legal challenge to the mandate, but we are optimistic that this news will prove to be a step toward victory for the fundamental freedoms of many Americans.  

“I invite Catholics, and all people of faith, to join me in continued prayer for our nation, for its leaders, and for the protection of liberty in the United States, and around the world.”
