New columnist hits all the right notes as a ‘joyful witness,’ reader says

If new columnist Kimberly Pohovey’s first effort (“Joyful Witness” in the Feb. 8 issue of The Criterion) is any indication of her future work, she’s made a new fan right here!

Her first column focused on how every time we step out our doors—whether to Church or just out and about—we encounter a slice of Americana: male/female, young/old, weak/strong, rich/poor, and that the Church is made up of just such as these.

This past week’s readings and homily were about how God doesn’t call the richest, prettiest or most qualified to be his agents to all of the above: he calls whoever is willing to go—and even they are sometimes doubters. Isaiah, Peter and especially Paul were all in this group. If they were called, why not us?

And as Pohovey says, “We should do it with a smile!”
