My unofficial tally: 48 pts


  1. Not that it makes a big difference or anything, but published homilies are 1 point. So you get 46 points.

    Are you sure you don't have six bishops on your team?????

  2. My reason for claiming three points for the homily was that other teams had been doing it in recent weeks: ( and (
    Chaput in both instances.

  3. Ummm...the software program that the Scoring Committee uses to analyze points posts must have missed that one from week 7. And the week 8 post hasn't been fed into the Points Post Scoring Analyzer Matrix Defibrillator. That'll happen later today (I only checked yours first because your format is easy to read and follow).

    In either case, published homilies (text or audio) have always been 1 pt.

  4. Okay, I was wrong - I finally got around to checking all the points posts on the 6th, rather than the 5th. But I made the necessary corrections where required.
