In response to trustee Cindy Olsen’s letter on the Catholic authenticity of the separate school system (WCR, Nov. 11), I am concerned with what Olsen describes as “Catholic authenticity.”
In his Nov.4 editorial (“Educational emergency is a call for Christian discipleship”), Glen Argan reflected on the important role Catholic schools can play in the “educational emergency” facing our children.
In his letter to the WCR (Nov. 11), Peter Hala submitted that Susan Zucotti’s “one-sided criticism” of Pope Pius (WCR, Oct. 14) does little to “help in interfaith dialogue.” With respect, Hala’s letter itself presents a one-sided perspective.
While good arguments have already been submitted by way of letters to the editor rebutting the criticisms made by Susan Zuccotti (WCR, Oct. 14) that Catholics, specifically Pope Pius XII, did not do enough to speak out against Nazi persecution of Jews, I would like to add a couple of points.
I am concerned with statements in the article: “New trustee wants to rattle some cages” in the Oct. 28 WCR.
I write in support of the WCR and of the recently announced major changes planned for January.
Re: the two articles in the Oct. 14 issue on the condemnation of papal silence during the Holocaust years.
It is hard to understand how one-sided criticism and contentious accusations of Susan Zuccotti can help in interfaith dialogue (WCR, Oct. 14).
Pope Francis has stated that he wants to change the Church so that guidance of the Church is not simply top-down, but horizontal as well.
