Many blessings and challenges face the Church and world today Print E-mail

To the editor:

Recently I helped out at Our Lady of Assumption Parish in Beloit. I spent over half of my active priesthood in Beloit. Thanks to God’s grace and good people, these were some of my best years of priesthood. Though I left Beloit 24 years ago, returning was like coming home! Yesterday seemed to become today.

My recent Beloit experience helped me see many blessings, but also many challenges that the Church, Catholics, and humanity face. Catholic Herald readers know what these challenges are. We must continue to support Church teaching, especially marriage and families, as Pope Francis urges.

Audrey's columns were always a first-read for me. And I’m several generations younger! The way she shared her faith with humor and grace was a tremendous witness.

What will you do for preborn babies? Print E-mail

To the editor:

Describe, if you can, how you would feel holding a baby that was scheduled to be deliberately killed?

I’ve been blessed to have held many babies: ill, injured, battered, healthy, and the homeless. But beyond description is holding a baby who was scheduled to be killed via abortion or seeing their photo.
