Last week, Pope Francis appointed three priests as auxiliary bishops of Los Angeles. One of them is the popular host of Word on Fire (and rector of Chicago's Mundelein Seminary), Fr.

Since our last story on which dioceses reached out to the laity on family issues, readers and diocesan officials have reached out to say they took part, too.
We say: The arrogance and self-importance required to undertake such a project, which will cost at least $500,000, on one's own behalf is breathtaking.
