I am back for the Wednesday afternoon session of #USCCB18.
To be honest, I'm not sure what to expect this afternoon, and neither is anyone else I've spoken with. There are a few things it *seems* the bishops would want to do before executive session, but the printed agenda went out the window, so I don't know what the plan is.
One thing to be sure of, there's a lot of meeting to go. Quoth Dynamite:

Cause we gon' rock this club
We gon' go all night
We gon' light it up
Like it's dynamite!

Cause it goes on and on and on
And it goes on and on and on

Bishops take up sex abuse crisis discussion again.
+@ArchbishopOKC: -I am concerned about the vote not going forward.
-I want to thank USCCB staff for the enriching prayer day, and I am grateful for NAC and NRB presentations, "among the richest I have experienced in my 14 years as a bishop."

-We need guidance on what "credible" and other such terms mean, as we try to be consistent and examine sexual abuse cases.

+DiNardo is no opening the floor for broad discussion/ideas about the crisis.

+DiNardo has established a task force. All activities of the task force will be carried out in proximity with committees. It is "deliberately small."

Dolan, Kurtz, and Gregory, the unretired former presidents of the Conference, along with +DiNardo, will serve on the task force.

+Mahony: We have spent time on the "effective response to the crisis" in the plans and proposals. But the "affective response," our devotion to each other as members of the college of bishops. StBorromeo developed sensible approaches to the affective relationships of bishops.
