CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco says that he is “deeply grieved by the rising acrimony” over a proposal for a statement from the US bishops’ conference on Eucharistic coherence. The archbishop noted that the discussion had been placed on the agenda for the June bishops’ meeting “with the accepted, normal, agreed-upon procedures,” and he objected to the effort to “derail the process.” His statement was a response to reports that more than 60 US bishops had signed a letter seeking to block the discussion.

    The corruption in the U.S. Church runs deep. When will we see a list of the names and affiliations of these 60 bishops? "If then you fulfil the royal law, according to the scriptures, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself; you do well. But if you have respect to persons, you commit sin, being reproved by the law as transgressors. And whosoever shall keep the whole law, but offend in one point, is become guilty of all." This is Catholic discipline as explained by St. James in his epistle.
