God created all of us as his children Print E-mail

To the editor:

In the January 28 issue of the Catholic Herald, a letter from Paul Richgels accuses Pope Francis of falsely interpreting Scripture when our successor of Peter said all people are children of the same God.

Ex 1:27 says, “God created man in his image, in the divine image he created him, male and female he created him.”

There are not two kinds of people: those created by God and those who are not. God created all of us as his children and loved us so much that he gave us the free will to choose to reciprocate his love!

To the editor:

In the January 21 issue of the Catholic Herald is an article about Pope Francis’ visit to a synagogue where he made the statement that all people are children of the same God.

Never felt less than welcome at St. Paul’s Print E-mail
Letters to the editor

To the editor:

From our first encounters with St. Paul’s University Catholic Center as uncertain students in the early 1980s, through our wedding and children’s baptisms, and many Eucharistic liturgies, we never felt less than welcome in that “dark, narrow, and cramped” physical building.
