Editorial on health care reform missed one aspect of stewardship

I am writing with a comment about an editorial reprinted with permission from the Aug. 28 issue of The Criterion by Daniel Conway titled “Health care reform: A stewardship perspective.”

It was inserted in our parish bulletin at St. Louis de Montfort Parish in Fishers, Ind., in the Lafayette Diocese.

As a former health care professional, I couldn’t help thinking as I read the editorial that one aspect of stewardship was not mentioned.

Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit, and we have a responsibility to take care of our bodies by not overeating, not drinking alcohol to excess and not smoking.

We need to be better stewards in these areas.

- Theresa Porter, Fishers, Ind.
