Today, on this Labor Day, we pray for the dignity of all workers as well as for the unemployed.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops issued their annual Labor Day statement, with a focus on the economic strain caused by the current pandemic and the inequalities it has worsened. It calls us to consider the choices we make to build a more just world.

"The good news is that injustice does not need to have the last word. The Lord came to free us from sin, including the sins by which we diminish workers and ourselves."

Column: California could soon end its dumb policy on inmate firefighters. What took so long?

Legislation would give released inmates a job and reward them for risking their lives as prisoners to fight fires in California.

[08/26/20]   Firefighters continue to battle wildfires in Bay Area



Welcome to the Aug. 26, 2020 edition of Just 3 Things, the weekly social action newsletter of the Office of Human Life & Dignity. Here are some of the social justice news items of the week. If this email was forwarded to you and you'd like to receive it each week, click here to visit our website to subscribe. __________________________________________________________________

The San Jose Mercury News and California's bishops agree -- voters should vote No on Proposition 14 in November. Proposition 14 would authorize $5.5 billion in bonds to continue funding California's stem cell agency, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine. Proposition 14 is before voters because the money is running out from the $3 billion bond issue and constitutional amendment --Proposition 71-- voters approved in 2004. Proposition 71 was a project of embryonic stem cell advocates angered by then-President George W. Bush's decision to restrict federal funding of embryonic stem cell research to already existing human embryonic cell lines. Proposition 71 was promoted heavily by celebrities including actor Michael J. Fox ( Back to the Future, Family Ties ) who continues to battle Parkinson's disease. Proposition 71 promised miracle cures that have failed to appear--there have been no successful therapies developed from embryonic stem cells while ethical adult stem cells are used in numerous successful therapies. In fact, the majority of research projects funded by CIRM now are for adult stem cell research .

The Catholic bishops opposition to Proposition 14 is founded on both moral and fiscal grounds . As they state: "The California Catholic Conference strongly recommends a NO vote based on moral and ethical objections to using human embryonic stem cells as the raw material for experimentation and inadequate financial accountability and oversight of taxpayer funds." And the Mercury News states in its editorial here "Long-term, sustained funding was never the intent when California voters passed Proposition 71."

Masses continued outdoors on the plaza at the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption, with Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone celebrating 9 a.m. Mass for the Queenship of Mary on Saturday, Aug. 22 as well as the regular 9 a.m. Sunday Mass on the plaza. For both Masses, the archbishop was joined by 12 other priest celebrants so that the faithful could attend Mass and the Archdiocese could comply with San Francisco's restrictions on religious services to be held only outdoors and with a maximum of 12 people. The 9 a.m. Sunday Masses will continue with the archbishop and multiple celebrants until the restrictions are lifted.

California's wildfires are filling the air with smoke and forcing evacuations around the Bay Area, including in parts of western San Mateo and Marin counties.
