Hitting the Nail on the Head

Dear Editor: The loud banging sound I heard while reading the May 25 Tablet was you hitting the nail on the head in your “As The Tablet Sees It” column “Keep the Hierarchy.” The last paragraph in particular was outstanding! It encapsulated today’s problems in the Church while at the same time offering a constructive way for us to deal with those problems: believe in the triune God and pray.

God and Country

Dear Editor: I  would like to praise a good priest who I have gotten to know – Father Mark Bristol. I know of his love of God and country (“It’s Anchor Aweigh for Father Bristol As He Becomes Navy Chaplain,” June 1). He is a most dedicated priest and is loved by all he has served.

The Great Carl Erskine

Dear Editor: Great story about “Oisk” in the Bobby Thomson homerun game (“Brooklyn Can’t Forget the Pride of Anderson, Ind.,” May 25). It was a sad day in Brooklyn.

Congrats to Msgr. Ogle

Dear Editor: Congratulations to Msgr. Ogle and his communication team at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel on receiving the Francis De Sales Communication Award (“Growing the Good News: World Communications Day 2019,” May 18).

Honoring Msgr. Casey

Dear Editor: I would like to prayerfully congratulate Msgr. John F. Casey on his 65 year Anniversary as a Priest (“Priests Are Marking Their 65th, 60th Anniversaries,” May 18).

Thank You, Father Labita

Dear Editor: I remember Father Frank Labita from my days in Our Lady of Angels parish, Bay Ridge (“Priests Are Marking Their 65th, 60th Anniversaries,” May, 19). It was a wonderful era to have grown up in. I have only good memories.

God Bless You, Brother Jude

Dear Editor: Brother Jude was my guidance director when I was attending St. Anthony’s H.S. from 1973 through 1977 (“Brother Jude Byrne, O.S.F., Obits, Dec. 15”).

Bishop Kearney HS Closing

Dear Editor: They will never take our strength of excelling or our faith distributed within the educational system (“Bishop Kearney High School Announces Permanent Closure,”May 19). We are 1.2 billion strong and expanding. Good luck to all.

The Death of Jean Vanier

Dear Editor: Monsieur Jean Vanier – an inspiring and zealous member of the planet (“With Death Of Jean Vanier, Catholicism Loses a Living Saint,” May 18). May he continue to inspire countless others to serve our disabled brethren worldwide.

A Fierce Determination

Dear Editor: I had the pleasure of meeting Jessica when she was a baby (“Let Them Speak: Never Be Afraid of Being Yourself,” May 19). She trusted me enough to let me hold her; but I was told to lay her head on the table because she had no control, nor the ability to, lift it or move it on her own.
