Letters from Readers

  • Seminary concerns

    Thank you for including my letter asking about the plans for the seminary in the issue for April 6. I worked many years there in the archives and the library, and because of the recent turbulence, I am concerned about its future.

  • A nation nurtured, enriched by immigrants

    On the hot issue of immigration, these are my thoughts and feelings: Immigrants come from India, Mexico, Malaysia, Indochina, Guatemala, Rwanda, Asia, Africa, Australia, Nicaragua, Tanzania and South America, and they nurture and enrich their adopted country, the USA.

  • Seminary questions

    The selection of Jesuit Father George Schultze as the new president /rector of St. Patrick’s Seminary & University is a good choice (“Jesuit Father George Schultze to lead seminary at ‘major turning point,’” Feb. 23, 2017, Page 1).

  • March questionable

    I applaud Jerry Heckert’s letter in which he pointed out that the Presentation Sisters participated in the Women’s March Jan. 21 despite the fact that pro-life groups were not invited to participate in view of their pro-life stand.

  • Miracles at Medjugorje

    I, too, am leery of miracle-hawkers, as well as I should be. However, I know two priests who actually witnessed the “miracle” and I have no reason to disbelieve them.

    Thank you for publishing Bishop Ratko Peric’s statements in the March 9 Catholic San Francisco.

  • Shocking photo

    What a shock, and what a disappointment, to see a photo in Catholic San Francisco of the Presentation Sisters marching in the Women’s March in San Francisco on Jan. 21.

  • Authoritarian but not authoritative?

    Reading the opinion article on the church’s resolution of bioethical questions, by Father Tadeusz Pacholczyk (Feb. 23), one must ask, “What is wrong with this message?” One answer is “Everything historical in the article is true, but needs further interpretation.”

  • Abortion’s toll

    The pulpits of Catholic churches have maintained a perpetual forbearance of preaching against the evil of abortion.

  • Letters disheartening

    I just read the letters to editor section (Feb. 23). It’s not happy reading. Although there are letters expressing opposite points of view, the bottom line is depressing. You know I’m in the liberal-progressive camp, but it’s all quite disheartening, no matter where you stand.

  • Take a deep breath and pray

    While reading the online letters column from the Feb. 6 issue, I thought for a minute that my connection had accidentally switched me to Facebook! The two letters excoriating CSF for publishing “all the pro-Trump articles” in the Jan. 26 edition are similar to the buzzword-filled memes that are still clogging my Facebook feed!

  • Trump is standing against culture of death

    Re Richard Morasci’s letter, “Church should step in on President Trump,” Feb. 9: He stated “the church is willing to put up with anything that Trump was willing to throw at the nation as long as he was firmly against abortion.”

  • Writer’s opinion widely shared

    To Richard Morasci of San Francisco, bravo on your wonderfully written letter for the opinion page.

  • Praising Trump and disruptive change

    Unfortunately, Clara McKennett (Letters, Feb. 9) won’t see this incredible source of religious inspiration anymore because she un-subscribed possibly over the president’s decision not to send federal funds anymore to foreign countries for abortions, or was it appointing a pro-choice Supreme Court judge?

  • The Catholic vote and Trump

    Well, that’s what happens when so many anti-choice, pro-birth, single-issue Catholics vote for a reality show hack and hate-mongering, racist authoritarian.

  • Article omitted significant facts

    Re ‘Presidential travel ban prompts Catholic outrage,’ Feb. 9: There are three significant facts omitted from the article: 1. 193-plus other nations continue to send immigrants and refugees to this country and we welcome them.

  • Church should step in on President Trump

    I read your article, “Trump presidency receives words of hope, prayers for civility,” (Jan. 26) and I thought, “Isn’t it too late?” During his campaign, Trump made it very clear to anyone who was willing to listen how he treated people and what his policies would be.
