To the Catholic Sentinel:

The Catholic Sentinel editorial “Council is the air we breathe” quotes the phrase ecclesia semper reformanda est, meaning “the church is always in need of reform.”

The writer calls this “a medieval piece of wisdom.” It is neither medieval nor Catholic; it is a 17th century slogan of the Protestant Reformation! It is good, however, to see a Latin quotation in the Sentinel. Perhaps next time include quotes from actual Vatican II documents instead.

Ricardo Alcocer, Otter Rock
