Kudos.

Finally a Catholic publication with guts! I hope the fate of America and forced-out editor Tom Reese will not be yours.

Your January cover story on women in the church by Ren4e LaReau is truly commendable. The Examined Life ("Guess who's not coming to dinner") by Bryan Cones on the reception of Communion was also a joy to read; it will be a handout at our Christmas Eve Mass.

We are a small parish within the framework of the Catholic Church in America. All of what was stated in the January Sounding Board ("Good things come in small parishes") by Sister Gall Gensler, O.S.F. speaks volumes to us. We refer to ourselves as the Catholic church without all the human laws.

U.S. CATHOLIC continues to make important contributions to the life of the church. I find myself in the unfamiliar position of not getting my episcopal nose out of joint about the issues you openly, frankly, and honestly confront, nor the editorial positions you take. They are the issues I hear the Catholic lay faithful I encounter discussing. On such matters as cleansing of chalices and Communion cups, they roll their eyes.
