Letters to the editor

To the editor:

The December 6 issue of the Catholic Herald had tough competition from tree trimming, gift wrapping, and Christmas cards.

But I welcomed a “sit-down” to read the special “In Memoriam” section about Bishop Robert C. Morlino in the Herald. It speaks beautifully to a life well-lived.

Prepare for the second coming of Jesus Print E-mail

To the editor:

What does the Bible tell us are the four spirits which will be governing the hearts of men at the second coming of Jesus Christ? Zechariah 6:1-5 provides an account of four chariots pulled by red, black, white, and pale green horses. Revelation 6:1-17 provides a similar account.

Americans must remember our founding beliefs Print E-mail

To the editor:

Thank you for your editorial, “We’re better than this!” in the November 1 Catholic Herald. The vision that all men are created equal anchors our respect for each other and inspires our behavior toward each other.

This belief moved our country’s founders to break away from the British Empire, to declare independence, and begin the process of developing a workable self-governing system. Neighboring Canada, for instance, did not have such an inspiration and remained a part of the British empire for decades.
