I was extremely amused when Bishop Wilton Gregory, president of the USCCB announced that Oklahoma Governor, Governor Keating will chair the National lay review panel that would assess the compliance of U.S. dioceses. For some strange, and probably irrational reason, I thought that the lay boards would be made up of Mrs. Jane Smith, homemaker and mother of four, types. I wasn't expecting high powered participation. I was hesitant at the choice because of the possible political overtones and potential compromises, but comments from the Governor have been positive so far. It will be very interesting to see how all this plays out.
