Dear Editor: Excommunicating Governor Andrew Cuomo is exactly the response he wants from the Catholic Church. By announcing New York State is onboard, he singles himself out as a loyal ultraliberal member of his party and welcomes the attention he is receiving. Moral principles go out the window and are replaced by political ambition and a quest for power. Watch out, Governor.
Dear Editor: In regard to abortion, we have come down to the “letter of the law” versus “the spirit of the law.” None of this should surprise us since we tried to re-define the word “is” during a recent presidency. These days the word for re-defining is “procures.”
Dear Editor: Gov. Cuomo, like most political hucksters, is a master of spin and duplicity who sadly, believes the vitriol and egocentric slight of hand and “religious hocus-pocus” which he pukes out in defense of murdering born and unborn babies. Shame on him and those who advise him, if anyone can do such a evil task.
Dear Editor: I left the State of New York before Bishop DiMarzio became Bishop of the Diocese of Brooklyn. But my heart still has a huge place reserved for my county and Church in Brooklyn.
Dear Editor: He always pointed out the important things in life by telling us, ”Gentleman this is key.” He would encourage us each day by exhorting us with one word that would become his legacy to many of us: “Gentlemen, persevere” (“Msgr. Keane, Teacher and Pastor, Served As Priest For 60 Years,” Feb. 9).
Dear Editor: Each church should name Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the Prayer of the Faithful and also name the members of the legislature in their community (“Let Us Not Judge, Let Us Pray For Governor Cuomo,” Feb. 2). However, some of our clergy are so far out Democrats that they will praise him.
Dear Editor: I loved your sharing, such that any woman reading it would agree she can still be a sister (“Responding in Love” by Sister Nancy Gilchriest, S.S.N.D., March 3, 2018).
Dear Editor: I am a former student of Our Lady of Lourdes grammar school. (A Cristo Rey School Grows in Brooklyn, The Tablet, Nov. 12, 2011).
Dear Editor: The world is in the midst of spiritual estrangement (Readers’ Forum, Free College Education?, Dec. 29).
Dear Editor: In his Dec. 29 column “Put Out into the Deep,” Bishop DiMarzio reminds us of the stories of the Holy Family’s difficulty finding shelter in Bethlehem, of their seeking refuge in Egypt, and of the massacre of the Holy Innocents which they narrowly escaped.
