TO THE EDITOR: Father Joseph Creedon’s hostility to the Latin Mass mystifies me. In The Rhode Island Catholic’s July 8 article (“Ways we worship: Celebrating the Latin Mass”), Latin Mass priests and parishioners reflected upon the beauty of that rite. No one denigrated the ordinary form of the Mass. more
TO THE EDITOR: In his Apostolic Exhortation on the Word of God, Pope Benedict XVI wrote about “dark” passages of the Bible; those passages which, "due to the violence and immorality they occasionally contain, prove obscure and difficult.” more
To The Editor: Rev. Joseph Creedon seems to be irritated by an article that you published recently (July 22, 2010).

TO THE EDITOR: Bishop Tobin’s article When Preachers Fall From Grace (The Rhode Island Catholic, July 22, 2010) is right on target. The Catholic who leaves the Church because of the sins and frailties of priests is stupid, i.e. crassly foolish. more
TO?THE?EDITOR: To Deacon John Needham, I say “thank you” for your many years of service as a public school educator but now that you are a deacon (and thank you for your service to the church too), we hope that you will be a little more influenced and enthusiastic about church teaching than that reflected in your statement “vouchers…, while they may have merit, simply decrease desperately needed revenue to public schools.” more
