Not too long ago, I began to write letters to the editor whenever I felt the need to respond to criticism of my faith, my beliefs, my treasure, expressed in an article, column or letter to the editor. Before I knew it, I had written hundreds of these letters and had most of them published in local newspapers. There is some repetition of thoughts because these letters were t published every day. They are t scholarly treatises since I am t a theologian. You don't need to be a genius to read the teachings of the Catholic Church because they are clearly written in the Catechism. My Catechism is dog eared. Trust me. There is question in my mind that I was guided in my efforts by the Holy Spirit to defend, explain and proclaim the teaching of the Church. I was raising my voice in words on matters that affect our lives and the common good. These are letters that represent my Catholic action. I hope you agree that words can often speak as loud as actions.
