FLORIDA: Amendment 4 Video Message from Bishop Barbarito and FCCB Resources

Thank you to Most Reverend Gerald M. Barbarito, Bishop of Palm Beach, for recording this powerful video regarding Vote No on 4, https://vimeo.com/948386213.

Please share this video through your parish communication resources. The Diocese of Palm Beach will also be sharing this video through its communication channels and on its Vote No on 4 website landing page.

In addition, attached is a Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops document that explains Amendment 4 and identifies why Floridians should vote No. This document can also be found on the FCCB Amendment 4 webpage under Parish Resources. The document was carefully crafted to utilize best messaging that tracks with FVAE/VoteNoOn4Florida. So that we are all putting forward a consistent message, we urge you to stick with the language of this document and the bishops’ statement in your communications on Amendment 4. The explainer doc has been sent for Spanish translation and, when received, will also be posted to the FCCB website.

Also, added late last week, you will find on the FCCB’s Amendment 4 webpage, bulletin graphics of the Amendment 4 prayer card that can be used with or in place of the actual printed cards.

Additional items are also on the assembly line and will be posted to the FCCB’s page when complete, including:

  • A Question and Answer document
  • Social Media graphics
  • Bulletin Announcements
  • Homily Helps
  • Video for parish use

Let us continue to pray to defeat Florida’s abortion amendment: Ever-living God, you give life and desire a future for all your children. Take hold of our nation, state, and community and awaken in every heart awe for the gift of life. Send your Spirit to strengthen us with wisdom and fortitude as we defend mothers and children in Florida from laws that disregard their health and safety. Mary and Joseph trusted in you and welcomed Jesus into our broken world. God Almighty, we ask their intercession to protect the preborn and their mothers, and to guide all parents in raising their children. May they help us build a civilization of love by upholding the sacredness of life and accompanying pregnant women in need. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen. Our Lady, Mother of the Family, pray for us! St. Joseph, protector of the unborn, pray for us!
