And, typically, they provided a Q and A of everything the Archdiocese wants you to know, as well as bulletin and pulpit announcements to be used at each of the 'separately incorporated' parishes that the Archdiocese claims it does not control. Ahem.

What the Archdiocese does not mention is that what they are seeking is called, in bankruptcy terminology, a cram down. In other words, the Archdiocese is asking the bankruptcy court to cram down the throats of the victims of sexual abuse and other unsecured creditors its reorganization plan, over the objections of those same creditors.

And Jesus wept.

In the millennia since the RCC was established, Jesus must have wept more days than not. Catholics can be fierce in their faith and fierce in their defense of the prosperity of their parishes without feeling any compunction to behave like Christians. There has been no revolt from below. The silence of the faithful has been deafening.

King David, whom God loved very much, sinned against the LORD:

Adultery - Murder.

He tried covering it up -- until Nathan confronted him.

Then David repented.

And God spared his life - showed mercy - forgave. However, since David 'acted in secret' -- God vowed:

'the sword shall Never depart from your house because you have despised me'. (2 Sam12)

**Priests raping children -- Bishops / Vicar Generals ignoring this harm -- gravely offends God. And thee only reason Church shepherds are beginning to awaken is due to the 'Nathans' of the world - speaking Truth.

Here forward -- any individual, party, entity who obstructs, conceals, 'rips off', harms in any way His 'ewe lambs' -- remember:

The Sword Will Never Leave Your Home.

The new question I'm asking myself: What more is the Roman Catholic Church hiding?
