  • Removal of Catholic statues

    Am I to believe that certain Catholic school administrators in our archdiocese (or anywhere for that matter) are being allowed to remove Catholic statues and symbols of our faith at the school(s) they are in charge of because they believe the memorials will be offensive to non-Catholics attending their schools?

  • Inspiration and clarity

    Thank you for the inspiring coverage of the life and funeral of Archbishop John Raphael Quinn in the July 13 edition. He led the Catholic Church through some troublesome times with Christian charity, care and dignity.

  • Include more inspiration from the pope

    I was so disappointed to see only two small references to our Pope Francis in Catholic San Francisco issue of June 22. I have really appreciated the summaries of his sermons from the daily Mass in the chapel of the Domus Sanctae Marthae that you have sometimes printed in the paper. They inspire and teach us to be like Jesus.

  • Archbishop Quinn’s secretaries

    As a retired longtime secretary in the chancery office of the archdiocese, I would like to add information to the final paragraph of the coverage of Archbishop John Quinn (“Archbishop John R. Quinn: A clear and powerful voice,” July 13, 2017).

  • James Phelan’s complex history

    I don’t have a dog in this fight, one might say. My only relationship to the University of San Francisco is that I graduated from another college in the Bay Area. So what could be my point?

  • Respect for the gift of faith

    I know George Weigel is popular in some circles. I find him arrogant and excessively pleased with himself. His latest column is a perfect example (“Way beyond the new atheist nonsense,” June 22).

  • Trump wrong on climate pact

    John McCord’s letter of June 22 was only partially correct, and in some cases used measures irrelevant to the Paris climate agreement going into effect.

  • Consecration provides needed grace

    I’m so glad that Richard Morasci (Letters, June 8) reminded us of the consecration of the archdiocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary – even if he did sound rather dismissive.

  • Trump correct on climate deal

    President Trump was correct protecting the U.S. taxpayer from a poorly written and internationally unsupported accord.

  • Our Lady still awaits our response to Fatima

    The fact that Archbishop Cordileone consecrated the archdiocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary when the pope had already consecrated the world to her should not be a problem.

  • Loss of confidence, not of faith

    One must agree with Father Rolheiser (“When does faith disappear,” June 8) that rejecting a set of theological propositions does not equal losing faith.

  • Parents’ influence on children

    Little Sister of the Poor Sister Constance Veit’s well-articulated article (“The greatest mission for parents,” June 8) should act as a guide. It showed you cannot have priests, nuns and become better persons, if Christian life is not strong in a nation.

  • Corporal works of mercy

    It is all well and good to consecrate the archdiocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

  • Burl Toler and USF football

    Burl Toler is certainly worthy of being honored by any institution with which he was ever affiliated.

  • 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.

  • Shock and disappointment

    What a shock and disappointment to see Jerry Heckert’s letter (“Shocking photo,” March 23).

  • Commitment to mission will save church

    The April 5 Catholic San Francisco included a front-page article suggesting church leadership is a joint effort (“Church leadership a joint effort”).

  • 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).

  • 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.
