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.

Negative effect
I do not think Black Lives Matter is an organization that brings people together; however, Blacks do need help but most people, I believe, would prefer Dr. King’s type of approach.

Our beloved godmother
We give thanks to God for sending us a dear friend, a loving godmother, a doting grandmother, a wise adviser and a staunch supporter. We will always have a place at our table, and a soft spot in our heart, for our beloved godmother.

Refreshing witness
In this time of strife, the joy and festivity of the young people at World Youth Day are a refreshing witness to a better way, and happy news that our creator is a merciful father, who does not enslave us but loves us so that he gave his only son for each of us.

Thanks for sending Father Gary
Now, 79 or maybe 80 years old, Father Gary continues providing comfort for refugees. What can we do here in Oregon to welcome the poor and suffering?

Our pups are descendants of Father Jim's Golden Lab
Consequently, our pups are named after saints — St. Charles Anthony or Tony for short. Our female is named St. Lucille Rose or Lucy for short. It is a small world.

On immigration, we should follow Catholic bishops
There are a handful of principles where NAE and USCCB agree, but because of the principles where they disagree, the office supports the USCCB.

Each can act
A friend gave me a copy of “Milligrams of mercy” by Patricia Matteri (July 1, page 18). It was a timely gift. National events threaten to overwhelm our best intentions and our own acts of mercy.

Gives me focus
These gestures help me get back in focus. Having all members of the Mass standing in union, facing the table of sacrifice and the tabernacle will send a powerful message.

Share your faith?
How many of us have thought to question anything about our faith and how we share it with Natalie and our other sisters and brothers beyond our freshman year?

Route to holiness?
We are clearly out of grace, but why? Perhaps  it’s “the universal call to holiness.”

May I buy one?
Loved the article about Philomena Durcan and her art. Are her quilts for sale anywhere? Well, no.

Find new angles
God may believe in punishment, but by no means believes in punishment by execution.

Outside their normal sphere
I am glad these young ladies did learn about something outside of their normal sphere of life.

Most important
It is a good reminder to focus on the most important thing of life, our relationship with Christ.

Good memory
Heather Renshaw’s excellent article “Understanding the Power of No,” (June 17, page 22) was informative, enlightening, cautionary, and telltale as well.
