In praise of Archbishop May

While reading of the difficulties Archbishop Wilton Gregory of Atlanta is having with his new residence, that some parishioners have said borders on opulence, I was reminded of the late Archbishop John L. May of St. Louis. Archbishop May moved his residence from Ladue, sold that property, and decided he needed to live in the city. Here was a man who drove his own car, a car that was not pretentious, and would frequently stop at bus stops to offer rides to those he knew. Archbishop May was truly a holy man in our midst.

Gratitude from the Little Sisters of the Poor

Thank you for all you did for us. The pictures and videos are excellent with the article (March 3-9). I think you captured the Little Sisters very well, I feel as though you have know us for years.

Must have resolution to sin no more

I have read your report about Cardinal Walter Kasper (St. Louis Review, March 10-16, p. 28). He advocates giving Communion to some Catholics who are divorced and remarried with no decree of nullity, and with no commitment to continence while the first spouse is still living. His Eminence argues: "for one who converts, forgiveness is possible. If that's true for a murderer, it is also true for an adulterer."

Help to shrine's mission

The accolades poured in this weekend at the Shrine of St. Joseph over your article about the shrine and the Mass at 11 a.m. Sunday, March 16, commemorating the 150th anniversary of the miracle accepted in the canonization cause of St. Peter Claver. The layout, the writing and the sheer amount of space you gave to us was a big and pleasant surprise.

Immigrants and faith

Lost in the debate on immigration is the fact that Catholic immigrants risk losing their faith when they come to the United States.

Supportive housing

We often hear statistics about persons who face huge odds because of mental health issues and/or criminal records. Your stories of real people in "More than Housing" (Feb. 10-16) clearly demonstrates that caring, supportive housing can offer a new beginning for many who are rarely welcomed into or able to handle "regular" housing.
