In response to your article on the recent purchase of a pipe organ in St. Joseph Seminary (Seminary cuts a deal on an organ, WCR, Feb. 6), I want to express my disappointment at the way the article was written and the slant taken on the information.
I found Father Rolheiser's column, "A Haunting Equation: Suffering Balanced with Joy" interesting (WCR, Feb. 6).
I want to express my gratitude to all those people who have been involved in the process of revising the liturgy. What a huge endeavour and responsibility!

Since the new translation of the new Roman Missal has been implemented, I would like to make the following comments. I think it's time for the Roman Church to recapture some of its traditional devotions/practices.
Your editorial of Jan. 30 ("Take the fascinating – and surprising – Catholic house tour") ignores the horrendous mistake a few hundred bishops made at Niceae in 325 AD when they opted for the ease of governing and declared that a human being, namely Jesus, be one and the same as the Universal Spirit.
Kudos to the writer of "Mass reform is obstacle to evangelization" (WCR letters, Jan. 23).
The Jan. 16 article on sexual teaching led me to thing about a related issue. In recent discussions with friends, we all knew of situations of young husbands "pulling the plug" on their wives and families.
