Organ Music

Dear Editor: Ms. Cleary’s statement (Funeral vs. Funereal, Readers’ Forum, April 7, 2018) is not a fair one to make. One cannot make a generalization like this.

Women and the Church

Dear Editor: We are over 52 percent – someone needs to take action for the cause of women (“Pope’s Favorability Numbers Down,” The Tablet, Oct. 13).

The Limousine Crash

Dear Editor: God bless all who have been affected by this awful event (Limousine Crash ‘Heartbreaking, Gut-Wrenching’ for New York Community, The Tablet, Oct. 13). This article was really very helpful in informing us of details of all the latest information available.

Father Zanon’s Service

Dear Editor: It was raining, and I was alone on my way to my mother’s grave over 30 years ago. She had just been buried two days ago when I stopped in my tracks.

Traditional Pro-Life Judaism

Dear Editor: I have just read your splendid editorial “Kavanaugh’s Confirmation,” Bravo! I strongly sympathize with the Christian pro-life cause, yet I am not a Christian, I am Jewish.

The Camel and The Needle

Dear Editor: I’m sure my parish was not the only one that endured the tortured, “Don’t worry! Jesus didn’t mean what he said!” homily in response to Jesus’ encounter with the Rich Young Man. If we were to look at the Gospels honestly, though, this passage is actually the heart of the Gospels, with the themes of wealth and poverty, greed and generosity, and prioritizing heavenly rewards over earthly wealth appearing over 50 times in the four Gospels, literally more than any other theme and by a long shot.

To Attract Attention?

Dear Editor: Headlines are to attract attention, and readers, and offer a snapshot of a story. I’m not disturbed by this headline (Wealthy Catholics to Target Cardinals with ‘Red Hat Report,’ The Tablet, Oct. 13), but I would also point out that, quite reasonably, people with considerable discretionary cash would be preferred guests in the limited rented space available to the organizers.

Listening Session On Race

Dear Editor: I’m writing to congratulate the author of this article, Marie Elena Giossi, on her superb reporting on the article “Inclusion Is A Concern at Listening Session On Race.”

Unholy Compromise

Dear Editor: Father Anthony Raso’s exegesis in The Tablet of Oct. 6 (Sunday’s Scriptures) reveals that we have modified scripture by “little adjustments” so as to be nice. He decried such adjustments because they constitute a radical shift from Divine Revelation and lead to darkness.

Mercy First, My Home

Dear Editor: Some memories can fade in the wind and some will remain like the place of my infancy that closed its gates. I always return to the home I knew as the Angel Guardian Home. There I stand gazing upon the rustic towering gates remembering my place of security, where orphans rest their cries upon the Sisters of Mercy.
