Dignified death

Re: Faith shouldn’t have to bend to survive (Aug. 11-18):

Excellent article by Charles Lewis. But I wonder what euthanasia has to do with palliative care.

Self-imposed silence

Re: Archdiocese gears up for federal election (Sept. 1):

The Church and the large Catholic community of Toronto has much to offer Canadians, especially, as the article suggests, by using the wisdom of Catholic social teaching in formulating government policies.

Repentance

The Aug. 25 photograph of the return of the cross to Nagasaki Cathedral should be the first act of setting right the wrong of the bombing of Nagasaki on Aug. 9, 1945.

Anti-Christian bias

Re: “Report keeps Jesuit off monument pedestal” (Aug. 11-18):

Parks Canada, members of two Indigenous groups and others say that the positioning of figures on the Champlain monument in Orillia is “racist.” They’ve now decided to make changes to it including removing a Jesuit figure as an “example of reconciliation.”

Plan B needed

In late June a prominent parishioner and Knight of Columbus died. An Honour Guard was requested by the family at the funeral. About 20 fourth-degree Knights attended in regalia — 19 in old regalia, one in new regalia.

Re: PM defends religious freedom (July 14-21):

This is a curious achievement for a prime minister who reduced the status of the Office of Religious Freedom from an ambassadorship with a significant budget to a bureau within the Global Affairs Department.

Un-Canadian uniform

In May our Knights of Columbus assembly held its last meeting of the 2018-19 Columbian year. Among the discussions, the most important one concerned the new Fourth Degree regalia.

Uniformly upset

I am the wife and daughter of proud members of the Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus. It has been announced that the uniform is to change. The new uniform consists of pants, jacket and a beret.

Conscience rights

A recent column by Charles Lewis highlighted the desire for legislative protection for health care workers in the area of conscience rights in our province. It is an important issue that deserves our attention and that of our provincial legislators. However, I believe that the column unfairly targeted then provincial Minister of Transportation Jeff Yurek (currently Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks).

Eternal damnation

Re: Will there be a day when hell is empty? (May 19):

The purpose of this letter is to correct a theological misconception in a statement in Fr. Ron Rolheiser’s column.
