Dear Editor: I am 60 years old and have absolutely no memory – and therefore no fondness or nostalgia – of the Latin (Beautiful Missa Cantata, Readers’ Forum, Dec. 28 – Jan. 5).

Dear Editor: John Allen writes (“Why Ukraine Church’s Drive for Independence Matters to Rome,” The Tablet, Dec. 22): “During the Soviet era, fealty to the Patriarch of Moscow was imposed down the barrel of a gun, rendering, among others, the Greek Catholic Church in the country the world’s largest illegal religious body.”
