The motions of O'Malley and Dolan are NOT co-incidental--and you might add the new Bishop of Madistan, WI., to your list.

Sometimes it is not necessary to use a sledgehammer to kill the fly.

Remember that Dolan is surrounded by enemies--he reportedly has stated that 'it's worse here than anyone imagined' to a close friend in the Church...

Rembert Weakland lives on in the hearts of his minions.

Every rosary I say is for the Church and the bishops in particular. They have a herculean task ahead of them, some more than others.

Notice that the media is focusing on the orthodox bishops and not the liberal ones? They know the mavericks.

You could add Hughes in there as well. Plus he was pretty impressive in his verbal distain for the catechism books in our Catholic high schools. The bishop from Fall River - George Coleman - he's pretty good too.

I think the laity is driving the abortion issue - you can't ignore tens of thousands of people who brave the cold and uncomfortable transportation/sleeping accomodations who are there in Washington as tangible evidence that there are many Catholics who oppose the culture of death (Terri Schiavo is another good example) - it forces the bishops to act. Another tip of the stocking hat to Mother Angelica and the good people at EWTN for providing full (and therefore honest) coverage of this event.
