Thank you for the uplifting 7 May 2021 issue of the Catholic Sentinel! After so much divisiveness, grumbling and negativity around us, the positive and inspirational articles throughout this issue lifted my spirit.

I appreciated the proposals given by Ed Langlois regarding how we can support others by seeking and acting upon real solutions to injustice instead of complaining. If a group of people decide to act upon Ed’s third proposal, let us know so we can lend our support.

From the positive comments on the Viewpoints page to the new film about the Homeboys Industry and the Save Myanmar Multifaith Day Of Prayer — and all articles in between — I felt a renewed sense of hope welling up inside for the first time in months. Thank you for the encouragement to move forward in love, gratitude and blessing all around!
