Different rules

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has apologized for so many wrongdoings of late. He’s “sorry” about blackface; he’s “sorry” about SNC-Lavalin; he’s “sorry” about the conflict of interest with WE Charity — involving payments to three of his family members, exceeding a total of $300,000, in exchange for public relations appearances for the charity. This preceded Ottawa’s granting WE a nearly one-billion-dollar contract they then cancelled. Mr. Trudeau operates by different rules.

Well done, Knights

Kudos  to the Knights of Columbus of Holy Cross Parish in Burnaby, B.C., for going ahead with their bicycle drive, Bicycles for Humanity, despite three partners suddenly pulling out, citing differences of opinion on LGBTQ issues. The Knights collect donated bikes and ship them in large containers to Africa where the poor can use them as inexpensive modes of transportation.

Unjust killing

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.

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.

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.

Domestic church

I believe the present focus on streaming Masses is the wrong way to go.
