Great News! Almost Half of Bishops Still Catholic!

In the spirit of Jack Nicholson's President in Mars Attacks, who said, "I want the people to know that they still have 2 out of 3 branches of the government working for them, and that ain't bad..."

Well, there are still some bishops -- as many as less than half -- willing to vote in favor of the Catholic Faith. Furthermore, there may be up to a dozen who will actually speak publicly in favor of it.

So, all you Grumpy Gusses out there, Pope Francis is doing a BANG UP job, and we can all be proud of our CRACK corps of bishop-warriors eager and ready to take on 2000 years worth of Church starting with Christ himself. The Bear will just say that takes a Hell of a lot of guts.

As for Stalin's dismissive question to Pope Pius XII, "How many divisions does the Pope have?" the answer is clear.

One.

That's the division there has always been, and the only one that counts: Catholic and not. Our job is to keep our feet on the right side of the line and encourage others. It's simple, but it ain't easy.

    “They have abandoned the Fort, those
    who should have defended it.” (St. John Fisher)

    Who held the Fort
    Till the Calvary came
    Fighting for all
    In His Holy Name?

    Who fed the sheep
    As the pastures burned dry
    A few Good Shepherds
    Heeding their cry?

    Who led the charge
    ‘Gainst heresy’s Huns
    Defending the degreed
    To His lowliest ones?

    Who battened down
    The hatch of the barque
    To warm cold souls
    From shivering-seas dark?

    “Who?” mocks Satan
    Delighting in doubt
    Fills you with questions,
    Never lets you find out.

    “Hoc est enum
    Corpus meum…
    and for many…” who kept
    The dead words – Te Deum!

  2. Don't forget Nicholson's film "as good as it gets" applies here as well, I fear.
