I liked this comment from Jeannine:

When I read the list I was reminded of Ephesians 5:11-14:

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is a shame even to speak of the things that they do in secret; but when anything is exposed to the light it becomes visible, for anything that becomes visible is light . Therefore it is said, "Awake, O sleeper and arise from the dead and Christ will give you light".

I guess St. Paul is saying that the purifying light of grace can burn away the chaff that obscures our vision when we are dead in sin. So I think it"s good that all these things are brought to light, now to pray, and not just for the Bishops, but for the whole Church.
