Series on 20th-century Church is informative, reader notes

When I receive The Criterion, the first thing I read is the Perspectives column about the 20th-century Church written by Editor Emeritus John F. Fink.

These articles are a quick read and informative.

The whole series on Church history would make an excellent book—set up just as it is in The Criterion—to be added to any Catholic person’s library.

Living by example is the best lesson we can share with our children

At the top of each new chapter page of my Latin I book in high school was a different motto. Chapter one told us “experientia docet”—“Experience is the best teacher.”

The letter-writer’s response in the Sept. 9 issue of The Criterion to Father Tad Pacholczyk’s column on “Talking to kids about porn and human sexuality” was a refreshing new perspective that living by example in every aspect of our lives is the best teacher for our children.

At 68 years of age, I reflected on what examples I set for my own child. I also thought about the old adage, “You’re never too old to learn.”

Thanks to the letter writer and the editors of The Criterion for sharing!
