To the editor:

There were many good insights in the article by Bishop Robert Barron (on a Pew Study about why young people are leaving the active practice of Christianity) which we can easily recognize.

What is often left out for consideration in discussion of this issue is that in the modern faith formation process, at least in my limited experience of 50 years, there is a lack of engagement of many people, including myself, to a life devoted to dynamic personal devotional intercession and communal intercession happening outside the confines of a very structured and impersonal speedy approach by some to the celebration of the Mass and community involvement within the parish outside of Mass.

Gun proponents offer similar arguments as abortion lobby Print E-mail

To the editor:

I was proud of Mary Uhler’s stance that we should work for stronger gun control.

Last week’s Mailbag had two letters refuting gun control positions. I would guess that both men are strong in their faith and I would guess that neither supports abortion. But both letters troubled me in that they reminded me of the abortion lobby’s arguments.

Just finished reading the August 25 copy of the Catholic Herald. Nice job! Super coverage of timely issues: back to school info/choices, refugee insights, lots of outreach info.

Most of all, thank you for Holy Name Heights coverage. Our son was a freshman at Holy Name Seminary High School during its last year open. Memories of the turmoil and sadness of that year still linger in the hearts of many.

Right to bear arms rooted in Constitution; abortion is not Print E-mail
Letters to the editor

To the editor:

Mary Uhler and Monica Simpson fail to understand that the cities today with the strictest gun control (Chicago and Washington, D.C.) have the highest rate of crime. Wyatt  Earp displayed, in the city of Tombstone, Ariz., “No guns allowed within city limits”. He and his family reaped grave consequences for enforcing those restrictions.

The right to bear arms is rooted in the Constitution for a reason. We the people must be protected from government tyranny. Legal gun use has to be the peoples’ protection. Gun restriction laws are simply ignored by those who intend to break the law.
