The USCCB and the vast majority of the bishops who make up this abomination to God are corrupt to the core. I don’t like having to call out bishops for the evil things they do, but this show will nonetheless always draw attention to to bad bishops. We can’t do anything about removing them, but we Catholic laity can make it painful enough for them to motivate them to possible change—or at least make them start acting more like bishops. Remember: change only happens when a person has suffered enough. In this episode, we’re going to see if we can make Bishop John Stowe suffer a little.

What We Believe… Why We Believe It—the weekly bulletin insert to educate your parishioners!
No one disputes that today’s Catholic lacks knowledge of the faith. That's the reason so many are leaving the Church (6.5 people leave for every one who becomes a Catholic)—they simply don't know the faith. But the What We Believe… Why We Believe It system can change all that. Within a year of reading What We Believe… Why We Believe It, your parishioners will know exactly what they believe… and be able to defend those beliefs.
What We Believe… Why We Believe It works because…
It's intrusive (70% of Catholics get 100% of their information from the weekly bulletin)
Each issue is in engaging
Far from boring catechism, each issue is highly informative of orthodoxy without being “highbrow"
