"My dear brother bishops, it’s crucial for those of us who are bishops not simply to look like bishops but to truly be bishops. Otherwise, we’re just empty husks -- the kind of men St Augustine referred to when he said, 'You say, He must be a bishop for he sits upon the cathedra. True – and a scarecrow might be called a watchman in the vineyard.'

--Abp. Charles Chaput, Installation Mass, Philadelphia
