In the business world, there are things that everyone knows work. These are commonly called "best practices". These best practices cover the gamut - from accounting to human resources. In many ways the Catholic Church has been slow in incorporating best practices into how we do things. But, that is changing and I am glad to see it happening.
Our Sunday Visitor did a series covering these best practices and you can read about them here (pdf). The second story focuses on the Austin Diocese issuing of bonds to cover debt and loan money.
