On the Solemnity of the Annunciation, a High Court Argument on Religious Liberty

Today is the Solemnity of the Annunciation.  What’s a Solemnity, it’s a high feast day.  And since this Solemnity is in Lent, it’s treated like a Sunday.  So if you gave up chocolate, or video games, or meat or committed to fasting throughout Lent — enjoy!

In a wonderful piece of ironic timing, the U.S. Supreme Court also chose today to hear arguments in two religious liberty cases involving ObamaCare’s contraceptive mandate.  Advocates for Hobby Lobby, Conestoga and the U.S. Government all had a rough time before the nine justices.  For more details on the legal arguments, read the excellent summary by Lyle Denniston of ScotusBlog here.
