Does anybody really care about what the NCCB said seven years ago? The write so many things that it all gets lost. Your average Catholic has a hard time stating the 7 sacraments in order.

Carl E. Olson

James: Dr. Jeff Mirus does a good job explaining the importance of this note of clarification.

James, NCCB/USCCB statements aren't written for the average Catholic, they are written for "opinion shapers", etc., and seven years ago is hardly the blink of an eye in Church life. Of course, it's important that this flawed statement be corrected, and Mirus is right to call attention to it.

Golly, the bishops' conference is showing the more signs of sense (than anytime in my adult memory, anyway), and folks who should be supportive(okay, maybe not declaring holidays and dancing in the streets, but mildly approving at least) are dissing them for it right and left. I don't get it. Read Psalm 122.

4:10. Be it known to you all and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God hath raised from the dead, even by
him, this man standeth here before you, whole.

4:11. This is the stone which was rejected by you the builders, which is become the head of the corner.

4:12. Neither is there salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven given to men, whereby we must be saved.

Mark Brumley

You're right, Ed.
