See no evil

Sorry; I really don't mean to keep whaling on poor Archbishop Flynn (see below)-- who's going to be busy enough today, for reasons you'll find in the "News Bytes"-- but I can't let go without calling your attention, once more, to this gem.
On liturgical matters, Flynn said, the bishops were able to report on "the faithfulness of God's people in the United States and the great love they have for the liturgy." He said the bishops told the Vatican they have not experienced anything in their dioceses that would indicate a lack of faith on the part of the church community regarding the liturgy.
The bishops-- collectively-- "have not experienced anything" that would suggest lack of faith. Have. Not. Experienced. Anything.
"Lord, I do believe; help my unbelief." That's the prayer of a Christian, who recognizes that his own sinfulness, and therein his lack of faith. If he lives in the US, the bishops haven't spotted him.
