I cannot underscore enough how important this book is. If you wonder why we have so many problems in the Catholic Church in the U.S. today, you need to read this book. And if you don't wonder about the matter, you should and should also therefore read this book.

Yes, there is a place for secrecy--for confidentiality, etc. At the same time, this is often abused, as Shaw explains. This is a tremendously important subject.

Maybe it was somewhere in this post, but I didn't see it: Does anyone realize that the most important item on the bishops' agenda is getting "lost" (perhaps with the acquiescence of a majority of the bishops) -- i.e., the reform of the reform of the liturgy -- amidst all the political folderol.

The most important issue before the Catholic bishops in the US today is early adoption and implementation of the new ICEL English translations of the Ordinary Use of the Mass. Progress (or lack thereof) ought to be the "big story" of all these meetings until the job gets done. Most clergy and laity are only dimly -- if at all -- aware of the wonders in store for them that obdurate foot-dragging and liberal pettifogging are delaying endlessly.
