    wow – Oliver Kamm was completely off base, throwing buzz words and attacking the Catholic Church… Way to counter that head on…

    Dear Fr. Sirico,

    I am very grateful (as a Catholic) that we have a priest out there representing us amidst the “gratuitous” remarks that so often go unchallenged.

    I love the civil yet unyielding way in which you confronted his entirely uncalled-for gratuitous remarks about the Catholic Church.

    Thank you, Father.

    And thanks for intellectually standing up to the economic system championed by the scholastic tradition.

    My prayers to St. Joseph, and to Ven. (soon-to-be St. hopefully?) Pierre Toussaint are with you.
