Love story

Re: Is technology threatening our humanity? (Jan. 17):

My youngest son was born in 2015. On the third day of his life, the geneticist told me that my son was born with Trisomy 21, otherwise known as Down syndrome.

Open doors

Re: Woman granted voting rights for bishops’ synod (Feb. 14):

After reading the article concerning the appointment of Sr. Nathalie Becquart to the general secretariat of the synod of bishops, it made me think of Jennie Trout and Emily Stowe, the first female physicians in Canada, some 140 years ago, and the suffragist movement which very gradually gave the vote to women in Canada.

Bad match

Re: Missal updated in Canada (Feb. 21):

Changing the Collect Prayer to read “God, forever and ever” ignores the beauty of the English language itself, which clearly expresses the community of the Holy Father in His three divine personas: the Lord Himself, the Holy Son and the Spirit. Saying “One God” reminds the believer that God’s magnificence is embodied by three partners who are united in one form, the Trinity.

Special niece

Re: Is technology threatening our humanity? (Jan. 17):

I was impressed with Charles Lewis’ article. We have a niece who is Down’s Syndrome. Sarah is now 39. She was born with major heart and other problems. I was working in Kingston when her parents brought her as a baby to the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto,  I was shocked what I saw — this little baby with tubes and machines keeping her alive.

Insulting stance

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has no trouble seeing the log in Donald Trump’s eye while ignoring the blinder covering his own eye!

Papal protection

Re: “Windsor scholar studies rise in local anti-Semitism” (Jan. 24):

I would like to thank Dr. John Cappucci for his research into anti-Semitism in the Windsor area. This is a very important issue that should not be downplayed, as anti-Semitism is still very much alive.

Bad fruit

Re: Biden poses issues for U.S. bishops (Jan. 17):

I am sick and tired of Catholics in general and the leadership in the Church supporting cultural Catholics/Christians.

Papal prophecies

Re: Biden poses issues for U.S. bishops (Jan. 17):

Following Michael Swan’s interesting article related to the challenge for U.S. bishops, I’m suggesting to look closer to prophetic statements from two great popes:

Move ahead

Re: Editorial (Dec. 13):

Strange how our current political leaders can keep trying to ram through dubious legislation such as Bills C-7 and C-6 to hasten more suicides and threaten parents, yet this long-awaited bill to bring Canadian law in line with the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People continues to face more long delays, and another three years to simply “create a plan” to align the law with the rights passed by the UN 13 years ago.

Follow science

While most churches, synagogues and temples have followed the COVID-19 guidelines of Dr. Bonnie Henry there have been several faith communities in B.C. (and the U.S, including Trump with his rallies) who have repudiated these directives, maintaining their God-given and constitutional right to meet face to face.
