More the meeting was so that we bishops affirmed in our cam- to the risen Lord and to our ministry as bishops; to incorporate more deeply into our lives through a reflective process the significant characteristics of what the Church calls us as bishops to be; to study the implications for our ministry as bishops which emanate from per- tinent data indicating the trends and directions of our society and culture; to be able to interact personally with one another as members of a collegial body. His Eminence Basil Car- dinal Hume of England has offered a thoughtful and prayerful homily each morning during morning prayer. At the Mass, the presiding bishop offers the homily. During the day, we have listened to presentations by various bishops. Then, we reflect upon them privately and together. Here are some of the topics: "Universality and Collegiality" by John Cardinal Dearden; "The Bishop as Teacher" by Ar- chbishop James A. Hickey; "The Bishop as Evangelizer" by Archbishop Robert San- chez; "The Bishop in the American Political and Economic Context" by Bishop Thomas Gumbleton; "The Bishop as Builder of Com- munity" by Archbishop William Borders; "The Bishop as Sanctifier" by Archbishop Rembert Weakland. The spirit of rest and relaxation gives us a marvelous opportunity also to come to know one another better and to give love and support to one another.
