The single issue
I am a single issue voter: pro-life. All life comes from God and all life has a purpose given to it by God. An individual life is not repeatable.

Proud of Stan
Any high school kid with a foot that big was bound for greatness in some sport.

Why feature him?

To see Father Michael Pfleger of Chicago wearing a Black Lives Matter T-shirt came as no surprise — other than why the Sentinel chose to print it.

Not so accepting
Bishop Bartolomé de las Casas through 1550 was fighting for the acceptance of the indigenous as being human. The papacy backed him. Many Spaniards did not.

Position suspect
I have been an Oregon inmate for almost 18 years. The article about former Gov. John Kitzhaber’s involvement with Oregonians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (Aug. 19, page 12) gave me pause.

No libelous labels
It is better to consider the actual policies of the respective parties and candidates.

We all benefit

On immigration, has US bent to extent it is able?
It would be irresponsible for one nation to take all the immigrants in need at the expense of its citizens.

Teaching helps me

I find that the more responsibility I take for my children’s education in faith, the more I myself am catechized, the more my own faith deepens.

Concrete lesson
Brian Doyle’s “new” Beatitudes are an inspiring, concrete lesson.

Best newspaper
I subscribe to three newspapers and, of the three, the Catholic Sentinel is by far the best in many ways.

Show who we are

The City of Portland and Multnomah County have a serious homeless problem and our church is in a tremendous position to lead in finding a solution to this problem.

Mentoring abides
Mentoring the faith continues well beyond when our children leave home.

Mass just vital
St. Ignatius  took a year after ordination to say Mass because he did not think he was worthy. He also would break down at Mass because he was so moved by the holiness of what was happening. I wonder if this awe is still around.

Mistakes teach us
None of us is perfect, yet we often focus on the mistakes we make instead of the accomplishments.

Problem widespread
Homeless is not just a Portland issue. It extends across the state and throughout the nation and the same problems that the city leadership are facing all other municipalities are facing.

Both flawed
Donald Trump has criticized Mexicans,  Muslims and women but especially the Khan family who lost their son in the 2004 Iraq war.

Aquinas likely influenced Declaration of Independence
Since the Sentinel’s editorial (July 1, page 19) mentioned the wisdom of St. Thomas Aquinas, and I happened to be reading a summary of his most famous writings, I think Catholics should know how he affected the writing of the Declaration of Independence 500 years later.

Reactions to column on church's mission to souls
Archbishop Sample’s column was right on, and he is courageous and astute in pointing out that there is more to our faith than one single element.

Wrong rite
All of the Byzantine rite masses that I have attended use the type of host that was spoken of in the original question.
