On the first Sunday following the U.S. Supreme Court’s historic decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Rev. James Boric addressed a congregation at the Baltimore Basilica. “Heaven has to be the lens through which we see and do everything,” he said to a small early morning gathering. He would address a larger group later in the morning. The service came two days after the nation’s highest court, by a 6-3 vote, overturned the landmark 1973 ruling that had provided constitutional protections for abortion access. Boric mentioned the decision Sunday, joining Catholic leaders across the country who have reacted to the ruling.
