The one prince. (Letters).
I FOUND SISTER Joan Chittister's article "The Faith Will
Survive" encouraging in these troubled times. There are obviously
deep wounds and victims that we are called to pray for. In considering
the Catholic Church and the future, I can agree that there is a clearer
vision when faith is viewed as being separate from the system that
supports it. My heart and faith are with the church that I consider the
original Christian church. The richness of ecclesiastical history and
the magisterium keep us on the path of the gospel way of life. It is
undeniable that some members of the church have acted in ways that are
totally off that path. There does have to be a plan, a new culture, and
a new structure to prevent this type of destruction from ever occurring
or being protected again. The only prince of the church that I recognize
is Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.
