I don't think that there are very many Saints in the running in the USCCB these days. Ah well. It would be presumptuous for them to aim too high, wouldn't it?

Why does Bishop Gregory feel that he has to make a statement on the settlement in Boston? It's not his diocese; it's not even his metropolitan province. By making this comment, he fosters the illusion that the USCCB is a supervisory body, with some sort of authority over the diocesan bishops. Did you notice how he gave a plug for the Dallas norms-- which were not particularly relevant to the Boston settlement? There too, he suggests, inaccurately, that the USCCB is the bishops' governing body

I keep wondering when they are going to get around to spiritual healing. When is someone finally going to realize that the Catholic Church has a serious case of spiritual AIDS--no immunity to spiritual perversion in the form of heretical theologians, corrupted catechesis and ideology disguised as thought, moral relativity, rad femmes and active gays pretending to be authentic men and women. I keep wondering when it will finally be realized that the greatest right is the right to truth.
