By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Nov 16, 2017

Take a look at the list of prelates selected by the US bishops to represent their conference at next year’s Synod meeting: DiNardo, Gomez, Chaput, Barron. It’s a very strong list.

If you were watching the USCCB meeting carefully, looking for signs of how the American hierarchy views the challenges facing the Church today, the election of Archbishop Naumann to head the pro-life committee wasn’t the only one.
