Letters to the Editor

Coverage of pope’s visit was appreciated

Thank you for the excellent coverage of Pope Francis’ visit to our country. I found everything about the pope enthralling and encouraging, including his faithful Christian sermons, especially while visiting the sick (Congress), and his obvious attention to the very young, the very old, the disabled, prisoners, and the wonderful banquet for homeless folks following his address to Congress.

His messages of peace were like water in the desert. I frequently heard allusions to Jesus’ sermon on the mount in the pope’s words.

Thank you for the excellent article and interview with Bishop Braxton. What a delight to read this and not the latest about our rather dim politicians.

The Rev. Canon Dale Coleman, St. George’s Episcopal Church, Belleville
