Abortion battle: welcome support from our bishops...

They're more and more in the Klieg light and doing a great job.

Perhaps so many Catholic bishops have given us so little as many have belived the old yarn that many or most Catholics just go to church three times in their life for their baptism, wedding and funeral.

But bishops evidently are getting more vocal and this election year they are getting more bold and this is a great development and a joy to witness. Our chanceries and bishops offices are getting more articulate, quicker, on the mark, relevant and in the spotlight. Kudos to them!

It's great to meditate on the episcopal dignity while reading Ezekiel 34. It's a fabulous read. Here's a taste from Ezekiel 34:2, "Ho, shepherds of Israel who have been feeding yourselves! Should not shepherds feed the sheep?"
