  • Half-truths
    The modern sporting rifle is not an assault weapon. Criminals do not obey the gun laws we have now and our court system does not enforce gun laws we have that are aimed at criminals.
  • Good e-book
    Your Faith and Science e-book (go.sentinel.org/3wxecGY) is outstanding
  • At the first hint of temptation don’t hesitate. Call out: “St. Michael the Archangel, help me!"
  • Reproductive health?
    How in the world have we as a nation come to call abortion reproductive health?
  • I believe clergy and laity both should guard against pointing fingers at others. God and God alone is the only and final judge.
  • The new Supreme Court ruling on abortion brings to mind the depths to which our nation has descended in the past half century.
  • Upon hearing of the closure of the Sentinel and El Centinela, only a single letter writer wished us good riddance. More may feel that way, but mostly, we have received insightful notes of support like those excerpted below. We are deeply grateful.

  • Jesus told us his opinion in Mt. 19:9 — Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery. And in Mk. 10:12 — and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.
  • Who is the Oregon Synod Committee? How many people are on this committee? When was it formed? Who set it up?
  • Regarding homeless camps: Help usually arrives with a clean sweep of the area. Where do the homeless go?
  • A site I like
    The one site I thought would be there would be the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion, Wisconsin.
  • About Sr. John
    After Holy Names Sister John Maureen Backenstos took a sabbatical from teaching literature and writing at Marist High School in Eugene, she spent dozens of years at McKenzie Bridge.
  • The purpose is twofold: Shame the perpetrators and define abortion so all can see what it is.
  • Are non-internet users not heard? I rely on the Catholic press for news.
    I sit still, afraid to move and disturb the spell. Jesu is gazing into the cup, partially filled with Passover wine.
  • Timely message
    I would encourage all to consider registering for this important conference to hear clear teachings about the many issues of our times.

  • There is a denomination that offers all the things members of the Oregon Synod Committee are yearning for right now: the Episcopal Church, with its women priests and deacons, its same-sex marriage ceremonies, its recent statement in General Convention on transgender children, its permissive positions on birth control and its inclusive language.
  • This Oregon Synod Committee list of demands has the spirit of Protestantism.
  • It is my understanding that The Catholic Sentinel is an organ of the Archdiocese of Portland and exists to assist the archbishop in promoting and defending the Catholic faith. The Sentinel should be ashamed that such a column by the Oregon Synod Committee was published in its pages.
  • I was appalled when I read an article in the Gresham Outlook about how businesses — including Nike, Adidas, Columbia Sportswear, Salt & Straw, Wieden & Kennedy and Intel — are offering support to their employees who live in states that will not allow abortions.
