The B.C. Catholic has a story from Dennis Sadowski of Catholic News Service about an expected economic paper about the troubled U.S. econonomy by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops:
Titled "Catholic Reflections on Work, Poverty and a Broken Economy," the message would advance the bishops' priority of human life and dignity to demonstrate the new evangelization in action, explained Bishop Stephen E. Blaire of Stockton, Calif., chairman of the Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development. 
The bishops voted 171-26 during their spring meeting, June 13, in Atlanta to move ahead with a draft of the document. It is expected to be ready in time for a final vote at the bishops' fall meeting in November.
