Rather than regard the rosary as a “sword,” we might indeed look to Mary rather as a model to ponder these things in our hearts, and in praying the rosary, as our catechism suggests, “meditate on the mysteries of Christ.”

A great witness
In the 1970s, Immaculate Heart Catholic School on North Williams Avenue was more than 90 percent African-American. Many were non-Catholic but nonetheless it served as a great witness to the Catholic commitment to racial equality.

He is treasured
His leadership, his spirit, his energy, his gentle manner, his firm guidance, his deep and robust laughter, and his lifetime commitment to justice and peace have inspired so many people over the years.

He invites us to engage life more and more deeply

Bob’s whole mode of being has given witness to this message. What needed to be done was always possible in this context. He unhesitatingly set himself to the task at hand.

As the judge says, we must follow the Constitution
“Conservative” does not mean “rigid” or “old-fashioned” as many like to characterize. The word designates the necessity of conserving liberty and freedom for each and every American.

It's epidemic
We know sexual assault on campus is epidemic, and we must demand our Catholic universities fulfill their promises for compassion and justice.

Legal consent cannot be given when someone is drunk.

She failed the university
The University of Portland didn’t fail her; she failed the university by breaking the law with underage drinking.

Women are always put in the position of proving they did not consent.

As much as I have admired him as a writer, I am deeply disappointed in the current editor’s poor judgment in this matter.

'Great courage'
In the face of her sexual assault, and the resulting physical and emotional scars, Ms. Ell has shown great courage.

Pray for them
If you understand or refuse to understand the perspective of sexual assault victims, do pray for them.

Inexcusable
It is inexcusable that U.P could dismiss any action when it was pretty obvious that her state of mind due to excessive drinking could not allow her to think clearly.

Lead us, UP
I would expect the university I love to lead in this and be a role model to others, not hide behind the curtains of other institutions’ failures.

Stop your fright
Please stop putting frightening words in your editorials.

Enormous good
In a city as dangerous as Chicago, Father Pfleger is a diamond in the rough. He clearly embodies those characteristics of a pastor that Pope Francis so frequently talks about.

How much more?
If an American owns a home, a car and has personal assets but has, say, $150,000 to $250,000 in debt, would you say that American is wealthy?

To the dregs
Brian, we drink this most sacred cup with you, inexplicably fortified in the Spirit of the risen Christ.

Getting better
Has anyone else found the Sentinel to be a more compelling read of late? For years, I’ve spent 10 minutes leafing through the Sentinel every two weeks. Lately, I find I read more articles in the Sentinel and always look forward to the next issue.

No recriminations

Most of us, outside of party affiliation pull, prayed for a gentle ending to this two-year nasty presidential race, which was shameful with regard to the behavior of the contestants, their advisors and some of their followers.

Proud of Stan
Any high school kid with a foot that big was bound for greatness in some sport.
