It’s unclear exactly what Ontario classrooms are going to look like in the fall with the realities of COVID-19, but one certainty for school boards is an extra $736 million in funding from the province.

Unjust killing

Re: Bishops join forces condemning racism (June 21):

I take offence at Archbishop Donald Bolen comparing the alleged murder of George Floyd to the passion and crucifixion of Jesus.

Five members of the Clerics of Saint-Viateur in Quebec have been arrested for alleged sexual abuse of boys over three decades.

The talents of Toronto-area Catholic musicians are being harnessed to celebrate the works of ShareLife agencies and their efforts to support those in need.

Lower class

While being allowed to visit numerous vital places but not being allowed to come to the Catholic Church, the soul’s place, I have felt like a Canadian of lower class.

Despite the go-ahead to begin celebrating Mass on June 12, Ontario dioceses continue to take a cautious approach to re-opening churches.

Beautiful sculpture

Re: Jesus 2020: A clay model for our times (April 26):

Thank you Timothy Schmalz for the most incredibly beautiful sculpture I have ever seen. I was physically and emotionally moved, as I turned to Page 6 in The Catholic Register and saw how you captured our Most Holy Lord in such beautiful movement. 

Energetic message

Congratulations on the compelling, energetic message of the May 24 edition! 

Smear campaign

Re: Don’t Judge Pius XII yet, expert warns (May 10):

If ever there was a smear campaign, the one against Pope Pius XII is one for the history books. Having studied his pontificate, I am convinced that the campaign against him has done considerable damage against a man who was acclaimed in the late 1940s-early ’50s by so many Jews, including the Jewish State of Israel, as a hero for all he did during the Second World War.

Needs of faithful

Re: Cautious approach to re-open churches (May 10):

I am very surprised that Canada’s bishops are reluctant to press our government to ease restrictions on churches.
