December 12 in USCCB-Speak

Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared in Mexico to a peasant whose Bishop was skeptical, until the Lady's cloak spilled a batch of fresh roses mid-winter.

That got the Bish's attention, and the Lady is now patroness of the Americas and the unborn.

But THIS year, the US Catholic Bishops were doodling their wish-list, and came up with a new reason for the feast-day:  the Lady is now "in solidarity" with the illegal immigrants.  (And the NOT-illegals, of course, but who cares about them, anyway??)

The USCC employs far too many people who have nothing much to do.  In the spirit of St Francis, they ought to sell that building, distribute the proceeds to the poor (such as the illegals), and send all the ex-employees out as missionaries to Bangladesh.  Or Eritrea.
