Letter: A prayer for church bashers to see truth

The headline on the Nov. 25 editorial stating “Fractures not new to church” was a bit misleading. For centuries, the word schism was used and, amazingly, the Catholic Church not only survived, it grew and spread all over the world.

As an octogenarian, my Catholic faith is central to my life and totally responsible for the person I am today. I have numerous friends from various faith backgrounds, and none would say I hesitate to speak my mind on any topic. I am praying for those who bash my church and especially the ones who are so vicious against Father Gary LaMoine. He definitely is a man of God.

Perhaps a visit to Sunday Mass would give the naysayers a true view of this worshipping community.
