Letters to the Editor

  1. Sisters offer gratitude to the WCR
    September 26, 2016

    We wish to thank editor Glen Argan and the entire WCR staff for creative, informative and professional service over many years. At the end of an era, we assure you of our prayerful support as you seek new employment and embark on new paths.

  2. Use rosary to defeat demonic forces
    September 26, 2016

    October is the month of the holy rosary. While the holy rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary is primarily a prayer of love, honour and respect for Jesus Christ and Mary, it is also secondarily/simultaneously an act of war against the devil and all demonic forces.

  3. DreamLife Lottery doesn't fit papal vision
    September 26, 2016

    The Sept. 3 Edmonton Journal's Homes section featured the 2016 Caritas DreamLife Lottery grand prize $1.8-million home complete with a stage and seating area and adjacent bar/lounge, 5,350 square feet with a luxury hotel feel, four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and an attached five-car garage that comes equipped with in-floor heating! Mary Jo Leddy in her book Radical Gratitude had a conversion moment when a woman who had just arrived at the Toronto home set up to give shelter to refugees asked, pointing to the garage visible from the kitchen table: "Who lives in that house?"

  4. Ending isolation key to First Nations progress
    August 29, 2016

    We talk about reconciliation, apologies and forgiveness in relation to First Nations, but we never have a truthful solution. We get only negativity to do with problems on reserves. What we need to do first and foremost is abolish First Nations reserves and their isolation from the rest of society. Segregation does not include people or make them feel part of society.

  5. Families shouldn't have to run for their lives
    July 25, 2016

    My grandmother never said much about the "old country." I can remember her telling my little brother and me about the day Joseph Stalin's men came to round up her brothers and her dad. They lined them up against the barn to execute them. Then, for some unknown reason, they changed their minds. After Stalin's men left, my great-grandfather said only one thing to his family, "Run! Go, two by two, go to Canada - they're accepting us."
