Statement of Bishop O'Connell For Sunday Masses
A Fable For Our Time

Very Good News From USCCB

I missed the recent statement of the USCCB before I had already preached two homilies this weekend, but will add this by the later masses today.

Here is a portion of the statement released by Cardinal DiNardo, President of the USCCB:

The Executive Committee has established three goals: (1) an investigation into the questions surrounding Archbishop McCarrick; (2) an opening of new and confidential channels for reporting complaints against bishops; and (3) advocacy for more effective resolution of future complaints. These goals will be pursued according to three criteria: proper independence, sufficient authority, and substantial leadership by laity.
