In response to a request on another thread, here's your chance to suggest agenda items for the up-coming bishops' meeting this June. (Actually, I hear there's a panel of lay people who actually DO suggest agenda items for the bishops, but I have no idea who they are, or how to get in touch with them, or how they make their decisions. If you do, recommend this thread...)How about this--describe your agenda item according to the criteria for a Twitter post--140 characters or less. An example--"Guys! Dump obligatory celibacy! Keeps people from Eucharist, harms priests, fuels clericalism and clerical culture! Call BenXVI NOW!!"
