  • Nonpartisan
    I appreciate your latest editorial concerning the church’s attempts at being unbiased in politics. I particularly like your affirmation: “In sum, the dignity of life is paramount.”
  • It will shine
    Holy Week, though different, was wonderful. Just when it seemed the darkness of evil would snuff out the true light of Christ, we once again recalled the life, Passion and death of Jesus.
  • I underestimated
    If it is human nature to want what we cannot have, I may qualify as superhuman during the coronavirus shutdown. When the possibility of attending Mass was absent, although for justifiable reason, I wanted it back.
  • Oregon friends
    My two friends who live in Oregon need some cheering.
  • A life issue
    Shelter in place and social distancing are inconvenient, but we all have to do our part to save the lives of those around us.
  • Dedication
    I appreciate so much the way Katie Scott works with us.
  • I’ll share it
    Thank you for capturing such a complex topic and for highlighting our work and recommendations.
  • You broaden me
    Your newspaper fills me in on the many wonderful aspects of the Catholic Church: caring, environmental, multicultural, elders, children, schools, science, history — as well as the dark side of humanity.
  • Pray for souls
    When a friend informed me I would not be able to attend Mass, it tore my heart apart and still does. Not receive the precious Body and Blood of our Lord? The loss is indescribable!
  • Mice appreciated
    I understand those little church mice. We have all had to adapt.
  • An open confession: Had we forgotten we have souls?
    Most people ignore or don’t take advantage of what they have been given. Once it’s lost they hope and pray they will get it back.
  • It’s idolatry
    The switch is your soul, the soul of the people.
  • Which side?
    In Oregon, supporters recommend legislation to expand the practice of physician assisted suicide. So, on whose side are Oregon Catholics?
  • I remember her
    What a delight she was to me and to her classmates!
  • Most influential
    I was happy to see your article about the legendary Father Thomas Tobin. I don’t think it did him full justice, however.
  • Midwife marvels
    I was left wishing that women who choose a less clinical route were also spoken to.
  • Remember: The written word is living, effective
    Condolences are offered to the Pittsburgh Catholic and thanks are given to and for the Catholic Sentinel. The word of God, printed and/or posted, is living and effective.
  • Human missteps
    In regard to COVID-19, there is no evidence that God had anything to do either with its development or with its dispersal. It is the human tendency to be irresponsibly omnivorous that long ago set up the mechanism and market that has made zoonotic diseases — diseases that jump from animals to humans — survive and thrive throughout our history.
  • Sausage miscue
    Apparently familiar with some, but not all, Catholic practices during Lent, her startled reply was: “And you gave up Bratwurst?”

  • Miss the Sentinel
    Among the many things I miss about not attending weekly Sunday Mass is picking up a copy of the Catholic Sentinel.
