No faulty record-keeping here

By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 04, 2004

Remember when Cardinal Law told reporters that the sex-abuse scandal in Boston was caused larged by flaws in the system of keeping personnel files? Just across the state, it seems that another bishop had found an effective way toremedy such flaws.

    Minidoc has it right.The main food for the poisonous alge however are the phosphates that feed into the waters.I equate these chemicals with the laiety and say that true reform will come only when the laiety rises up and says "no more".Historically reform comes from the bottom up,not from the top down.Wycliffe

    Pond scum spreads thick across stagnant pools this time of year. The algal blooms choke the waterways, depriving the waters of life-giving oxygen. Then they themselves die and sink into the mud. The waters revive with the chill of winter and the floods of spring. And so it is with the Church. The pond scum reverends will eventually sink into the abyss ... and, please God, a true renewal will follow ... a renewal of piety, love of truth, and strength of character.
