They helped me
Not only did I get paid. A lawyer in my church represented me in a lawsuit for 25 percent and I got $2,000 in back pay.

You disrespected President Trump and the office
I have to see such things in the secular newspapers but please not in our Catholic papers. We are better than that.

Only the violent
The Trump administration should continue deporting those who commit violent crimes and leave peaceful immigrants alone.

Leaving Paris accord is indeed against Christian teaching
Mr. Langlois is spot on that withdrawing from an international effort to protect future generations from this one is against basic Christian/Catholic teaching.

These “Chicken Little Alarmists” have an agenda to control us, tax us and redistribute our wealth.

Encyclical 'nonsensical'
The Catholic Church and Pope Francis need to stop touting this nonsensical climate encyclical that is grounded in falsified scientific concepts and extreme left wing politics.

I remember them
Msgr. Tim Murphy recalls the men with whom he was ordained 50 years ago.

It takes courage
I encounter on a daily basis immigrants — documented and undocumented — who, despite their traumatic journey to come to the United States, manage to smile and give thanks to God.

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.

Tips for parents

On the blog New Liturgical Movement, Peter Kwasniewski lamented what he termed “spiritual illiteracy” among many Catholics. Who can argue? I think most Catholics, myself included, feel they have an inadequate knowledge of the faith.

Now it's up to us
The website is very well done with plenty of interesting articles and helpful resources. Now it is up to the rest of us to use the resources to carry out the mission of this center.

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.

Big picture view
It is a big-picture view of Catholic education in a rapidly changing environment. Nicely done.
