Your work is vital.
God Bless you and keep up the great work!!!
I was both surprised and pleased upon reading your article about the closing of a Catholic Church in Kansas City Missouri. We were sent the article by our former pastor who knew we were now residing in KC. The surprise was the head on approach in addressing issues facing black catholics, church closures, clergy sex abuse scandals, politicization of bishops etc. That this article appeared in a church affiliated publication, well, that was a pleasant surprise, keep up the good work! Please continue telling the truth, thank you.
Thank you for being a loud voice for the silenced ones 🙏🏾🇭🇹
I happened on your page about 6 months ago, and am happier for the happening. Great work! You share stories and events that we don't get otherwise - and they enrich us all. I'm ethnically Irish, culturally Hispanic, and my connection with the Mother Continent has to be maybe a million years old - whenever our emigrant-ancestors moved on out. But it's always a blessing to reconnect. One Family, many branches! Praise God.
I am so grateful for your voice and hard work.
In 1965 I was a 20 year old SSJ seminarian in Newburgh NY. I had been raised in the St. Louis Archdiocese. I am now 76 years old living in Chicago. For 9 years I worked with CRS (2005 - 2014). My job was to help Midwest Catholics apply Catholic Social Teaching (CST) to the world. CST is the salvation for the US Catholic church. But CST is not taught in our seminaries as an essential curriculum. I believe that because of this avoidance of CST our parish priests reflect a narrow conservative 'white' point of view about the world. Bishops determine the content of the seminaries. But too many bishops also come from a too narrow and white background. Our church is reaping what it has sown.
Thank you for giving us this vital ministry~ we are not truly *catholic* without you.
Thanks for your work! You keep us informed and inspired! From FutureChurch
