Letters from Readers

  • A million marched

    On Jan. 21, Presentation sisters and associates, along with a million men and women across the world, marched against Trump’s positions.

  • 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.

  • Murder in the Tenderloin

    Just read in the Chronicle about our archbishop conducting a prayer service at a bus stop where a 61-year-old old man was beaten to death by thugs.

  • Disappointed in pro-Trump articles

    I’m sincerely disappointed to see all of the pro-Trump articles in this week’s issue. I think this is not in keeping with our Catholic Christian values nor is it in keeping with the teachings from our pope.

  • Surviving communism as a Catholic in Cuba

    As a Cuban Catholic, I was surprised not to read in Father Kenneth Weare’s article on the relations between the Catholic Church and the Cuban dictatorship (Dec. 15, 2016) about the ship “Covadonga,” where hundreds of “problematic” priests, nuns, monks, and religious on the island were shipped off to Europe (mostly to Spain) after being rounded up by the Communist military soon after the Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961.

  • Abstinence and spirituality

    Re Elizabeth Travers’ comments in “Focus on charity, not sexuality,” (Letters, Dec. 15), I find that her perspective is quite common in the church.

  • The church in Cuba

    It appears in this article that Fidel Castro and his now ruling brother were Catholic.
