The USCCB: the Lord working through Roberts' Rules

Torture by Roberts' Rules. That's what we say when some organization or other to which we belong has to make decisions in the formal way. Yet, it is the simplest way we have to do things "decently and in order." Boring and occasionally a bit esoteric, but clear and in right order.

Our fathers the bishops have been subjecting themselves to great doses of Roberts' Rules these past few days, and for a few more to come, to accomplish those things that need to get accomplished. So much to get done, so little time to do it; motion, second, amendment, second, discuss, vote, motion, second......

Remember to keep praying for them. These few days they're being allowed precious little time to pray for themselves. They need us.
