Help is on the way.

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jul 24, 2003

A friend called my attention to this July 8 story from the Detroit Free Press. The Archdiocese of Detroit recently got three new auxiliary bishops, whom Cardinal Adam Maida introduced at a press conference.

Were the men in question chosen for their exemplary dedication to prayer? Or for their profound theological reading and spirited defense of controversial Church doctrine? Or for their edifying lives of personal austerity and mystical love of the virtue of chastity?

Maida said he was thankful that the pope promoted three veterans with "well-earned reputations as team players."

    Perhaps they can all group hug for the media.

    I've been searching my concordance and can't find "team player" anywhere. I was sure I remembered Peter saying in the Acts after the death of Judas "Let a team player take his office" But apparently it says "Let another take his office" I'm not a literalist and can see where "another" might mean another team player. Since it was Judas being replaced then and American bishops now, it's highly probable. Anyway let's send a comp copy of "Who Moved My Cheese" and line them up for a diversity seminar
