Just as other posters have commented, our pastor also tied it in to the Gospel Reading telling us "Be Not Afraid" as we continue praying our prayer at the end of Mass for the Fortnight of Freedom and do all we can to fight for our religous liberty that is being threatened by this current HHS mandate.

Ours wasn't on healthcare per se but it was about tied in the first reading from the book of wisdom where it said God did not make death, he said contraception is a form of idolatry and it means we don't trust god that ties into the gospel reading . very powerful homily yesterday. This priest was our parochial vicar last summer but has been transfered to a church in another deanery of our diosce so sad would love to hear him preach more.

In addition to what Zab said, during the homily, the Gospel reading was used to point out all of the years that the Catholic church has been in the medical profession with it's Catholic hospitals.

Well again, these were 3 powerful readings for the Sunday liturgy. A homily on any one single one of them would have been inspiring --- whether or not there were tie-ins to healthcare.

It does seem that various priests (including in my region) were vulnerable no matter what they said (if anything) on healthcare. There may be unanimity in some parishes, but apparently that is not nearly true in many other parishes, with parishioners expecting a "hard line" speciifically from the pulpit, during Mass, and not just in a bulletin.
