Congratulations on the issue of July 12-18, 1998. It's a wonderful boost to my sagging morale to see you take a firm stand on essential points. Your front page article by Mark Brumley, “Controversial Homosexuality Document Reissued with Revisions by U.S. Bishops” comes late, but no less welcome, followed by Bishop [Fabian] Bruskewitz's statement of some months ago, to which you accorded editorial status along with Pope John Paul II. Also, Karl Keating is a pleasure to read for his “episcopal backbone” and other phrases!
