Regarding “A radical compassion,” Aug. 16, Page 1:

I just read Katie Scott’s excellent story on Father Gary Smith in the Catholic Sentinel. Thank you for the wonderful storytelling.

I have been a member of a Catholic men’s faith-sharing group for 25 years, and we read Father Smith’s “Radical Compassion” book in the last year. It was remarkable and inspiring. It has motivated me to offer more help for the homeless.

I am pleased he is doing well and very impressed with his ministry and servant leadership.
