Brain reeling from the news of Bishop O'Brien. Gerdard Serafin offers the best proposal I've heard all day . . .
- Imagine that the American Catholic bishops gather together and leave behind all ponderous documents and proposals, all books and newspapers, and bring just the Bible (even the NAB will do!). Then to put aside the usual schedule and simply pray each day - long and hard. On the knees. . . . No lengthy documents approved, no statements issued. No more words. Perhaps an imposition of ashes the only "statement" of this meeting.
