  • Fine examples
    The finest example of Catholic church architecture in the archdiocese is our own St. Mary’s Cathedral.
  • A special school
    But we who were the students still remember the era of emerging Elvis Presley, cars with long rear fenders, uniform skirts below the knees (measured by our teachers), crewcuts, and bobbed haircuts.
  • For the Kingdom
    Now is the time for us to take an active role in ending systems that hinder the building of God’s Kingdom.
  • Teaching enacted
    Catholic Charities’ decision to advocate in support of this measure was a laudable example of the church’s social teaching in action. It is exactly what subsidiarity demands.
  • He makes sense
    We need more Catholics to use responsible common sense in this chaotic time.
  • Equality prevails
    The view that will prevail is God’s will expressed in the Gospel narrative about man created in God’s image.
  • Remember that we are in God’s hands
    We render service to God by being steadfast in obeying the Ten Commandments and applying in our acts the virtues of faith, hope and charity. We learn and practice temperance, justice and fortitude.
  • Fellow Americans
    Perhaps if more of our leaders thought the same, that peaceful protesters were fellow Americans rather than the enemy, things might get better faster.
  • We miss singing
    The subject is painful for me, my family and many others. Singing and cantoring are what I do. Ours girls also sing with the choir.
  • Spread blessings
    Will Americans continue to see the truth and sacredness of these rights and of their source? Or will they choose now to change course onto a tyrannical path?
  • A good read
    It was really nice to read of them and of their journeys in previous articles.
  • Close confession
    You can't really keep distance in confession. 
  • He welcomed me
    Our Irish family will always cherish Father John’s memory and the love that poured out of him.
  • Not constructive
    One must be prayerful, wise and informed in studying God’s word, but the perspective of the Roman Catholic teaching of that era is from long ago and really not constructive in God’s church today.
  • Wary of socialism
    St. John Paul II and other Catholic thinkers have been troubled by socialism, so I was dismayed to see Catholic Charities supporting Measure 26-210, essentially a wealth redistribution tool.
  • It’s principle
    I am one of the “few local Catholics unnecessarily chary over giving names and contact information when signing up for Mass.” This is not out of fear or a desire for privacy but a matter of principle.
  • No gray area
    I think it’s time to take your dog and pony show elsewhere.
  • It seemed harsh
    It seemed harsh to those who have concerns with this issue.
  • Parish dances?
    Why are we not still holding dances at churches for young adults?
  • Some do study
    Surely at least some readers of the Catholic Sentinel don’t claim expertise or form an opinion before studying an issue via printed material, the internet, cable TV, broadcast TV and radio.
