New Advent and Christmas eBook Ready
The 2012-2013 liturgical year begins on December 2nd with the First Sunday of Advent. I want all those who make use of our liturgical year resources to enhance their experience of the domestic church to know that the Advent and Christmas eBook for the new year is now available.
Our liturgical year ebooks include an introduction to each season along with the liturgical resources for each day in the year, including the full text as it appears on CatholicCulture.org with the same links to all the prayers, recipes, activities and other connected resources. A series of six volumes covers the entire year. Each volume is made available roughly a month in advance at shop.catholicculture.org in a single downloadable file which contains all three supported formats. The formats are MOBI for Amazon Kindle; EPUB for Barnes & Noble Nook, IPad, and other standard ereaders; and PDF for use on virtually any computer or computing device.
These ebooks are also available in Amazon’s Kindle store and Barnes & Noble’s Nook store. The price in all three locations is just $5.00 for each volume. Again, we have just released the new Advent and Christmas volume for 2012-2013.

@dfp3234574, the principles of Catholic morality have not changed over the millennia, and the shepherds earn their keep by teaching and following the principles. The spike in numbers of "sick priests" and their child victims coincided with the numbers of "sick" seminarians being admitted and ordained, while young men with real priestly vocations were vetted out for being "rigid" or "homophobic." One doesn't need to consult with "experts" to tell right from wrong about hurting Catholic children.

L. Martin Nussbaum, 2006: "No one would hold a brain surgeon to today's standard of care for professional decisions he made in 1970. Yet the decisions made in 1970 by Catholic bishops, who routinely consulted with mental health professionals about sick priests, are being judged by today's standards. Today, the confidence of the mental health community about the likelihood of curing sexual disorders is far less than it was in 1970." (And treatment of priests was argued as recently as 1985 & 1992)

Currently, only a miracle would restore my confidence in the American bishops. Moreover, only a miracle would restore my confidence in the bishop of Rome.

Answer to questions 1, 2, 3 - None of the above. When I see Bishop Scicluna land at JFK and give out his cellphone number to take any calls about Bishop, Archbishop, or Cardinal, I will know that someone is taking this seriously.

There are additional issues which explain the lack of action: 1) The "good o'l boy network is alive and well in the Church. 2) They are afraid to publicly go against one of their own. 3) Centuries of increasing Church centralization, have made bishops lazy, "Rome will take care of it...." (On a side not this is also explained by the tendency of Rome to appoint cautious men as bishops. It is a well-known fact that if you want to become a bishop, the watch word is DON’T MAKE WAVES!!!)
