Article on resurrection had factual errors

June 24, 2013

Chris Miller’s article on the final talk in the series on the Nicene Creed did try to capture the essence of what I said and I commend him for getting most of it right (“I believe in the resurrection of the body,” WCR, June 17).

Knights pledge support for Sisters of Life

May 27, 2013

Since the legalization of abortion, more than 400,000 innocent children have been killed in Alberta. It is estimated that, after taking into account women having more than one abortion, there are 250,000 post-abortive women in Alberta suffering from the depression that sets in after three-to-five years.

Unity undermined by Western treachery

May 27, 2013

Glen Argan’s series on Vatican II is informative, yet his crucial piece on Christian disunity (WCR May 6) does not go deep enough to reveal the hidden roots and causes. Christopher Dawson is an excellent historical authority, but his profound knowledge cannot be simplified into a conclusion that the union was rejected by Byzantine Christians.

Same-sex blessings would mellow attitudes

May 27, 2013

I am finding myself increasingly agitated by some of the attitudes put forth by my fellow Catholics in regard to homosexuality.

News coverage of pope turning him into idol

April 29, 2013

Doing yoga postures expresses Hindu meaning

April 29, 2013

Regarding the letter by Jeff Scales (“Warning against yoga absurdly fundamentalist,” WCR, April 15), if Mr. Scales “understands and supports the Church’s position on dabbling with the occult,” he would do well to investigate, with minimal effort, the practices of yoga, kinesiology, therapeutic touch, etc.

Practising yoga violates First Commandment

April 29, 2013

I am writing in response to the letter to the editor titled “Warning against yoga absurdly fundamentalist” on April 15.

Comments on New Age, yoga are laughable

April 29, 2013

Re: Articles on New Age and yoga by Chris Miller (WCR, March 25).

Fr. Perron was a good role model

April 29, 2013

Thank you Ramon Gonzalez and the WCR for your wonderful article on the death of Father Vic Perron, a very dear friend (“Shy Fr. Perron gave spirited homilies,” WCR, April 1).

St. Francis emphatically not a layperson

April 15, 2013

Thank you for the excellent coverage of this grace-filled moment of transition in the Church.
