Maybe It Is Something, God Forbid, More Intentional

Dear Editor: Off the top of my head I can think of only one other New York woman of note whose life made as much of a difference to the city as did that of Mother Cabrini and that is Elizabeth Ann Seaton. There are others, for sure, like Eleanor Roosevelt and Dorothy Day.

Dear Editor: Free press is the country’s defense against total government control of the people and to hold people in government accountable.

American Citizens Deserve Help Too

Dear Editor: Catholic Extension has announced their Aid for Families of Deported Breadwinners program (The Tablet website, Aug. 9).

Catholic Veneration for the Remains of the Dead

Dear Editor: Edward Dorney misses the point (“About Human Composting,” Readers’ Forum, July 27).  Weigel defending religious sensibilities such as veneration for the remains of the dead is clearly not motivated by sanctimony towards the secularity that actually is sanctimonious.
