    Or to most of the Catholics. Nor do they speak for many of us. I haven't heard a peep from my bishop in months, and I'm quite good with that, thanks. ;)

    I know that the food pantry at my parish is churning along. I assume they're getting more requests for help right now, and figure we'll find a way to make up the slack. All without the awareness or involvement of the bishop. (We are not part of the "faith-based initiatives", and get no federal funding.)
