Catholic World News - May 08, 2014

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has released the agenda of its spring meeting, which will take place on June 11-13 in New Orleans.

Among the agenda items are presentations on the upcoming Extraordinary Synod of Bishops on the Family and World Meeting of Families, the potential revision of the quadrennial election statement “Faithful Citizenship,” and a discussion of two special topics: “marriage and the economy” and “the new evangelization and poverty.”

    The "Faithful Citizenship" pamphlet? If anything, they should dedicate that example of episcopal relativism to the memory of the 54 million aborted babies who never got to see the light of day thanks in part to the politicians we freely elect.

    And there are no discussions concerning Canon 915 and their lack of following it; Common Core in Catholic schools; and last (but not least) CINO universities and colleges who regularly ignore the Magisterium. Perhaps the bishops don't want to talk about these things, but the laity most certainly wants to know why they are not taking care of business. (What a great idea for future meetings - let the laity set the agenda!)
