  • 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.
  • Hooray for GK
    I was delighted to see the story about G.K. Chesterton. He has been called the greatest writer in a century. Since high school I have been meaning to read his life story but never have. 
  • I’m no threat
    Some acted as if to say: “When a believer in Christ has mental health issues, then such a believer will always be viewed as weak and never find true happiness through the eyes of God.”

  • 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.
