View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

True - but I also don't see such NY Bishops as Cunningham, Hubbard, Moynihan, Kmiec, Murphy or DiMarzio on the list.
