Truth may hurt

Thank you, Father, for reminding us that “Practicing self-truth spills over into our work, family, government and church, generating the strength needed to fight today’s falsehoods and dishonesties.”

Thanks for help
I hope everyone took time on our most sacred non-religious day to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so we could live in peace.

Cartoon offensive
At least Pope Francis demonstrated class during President Trump’s visit, as compared to your introduction of a bogus sanctuary issue in a cartoon.

Equally heroic
Instead of acknowledging our call as human beings to help one another, you call out only the known Christian and set him apart.

Be thorough
Islam is a religion of all ethnicities, so being antagonistic toward Muslims doesn’t make him a racist, it makes him a bigot and a hateful person. Nuance means something. Please be more thorough.

Why have we forgotten how early Christians loved?
In the last four years we have heard the constant drumbeat from Pope Francis to go out to those in need, those on the fringes, and to be with them to help in ways that maintain human dignity. We seem to be nowhere near meeting the need.

Sanctuary might mean asylum
Accompaniment as described in the document is an essential part of our responsibility to undocumented persons, especially those who are members of our congregations. However, offering asylum may become necessary to protect families and individuals from forced deportation.

Like a daffodil

The passing of my dear friend Sister Teresa Mitchell at the Carmel in Eugene leaves the world a darker place. She always reminded me of one of my favorite flowers, the daffodil — a bright and cheerful spot in the gray cold of spring.

Leave it to God
They can choose to follow Jesus’s words in Matthew 7:12 and provide the best service they can and leave the judging up to God.
