Columns about election remind us to listen and seek understanding

I was very impressed with the first column in the Sept. 18 issue of The Criterion compiled by the archdiocesan Office of Human Life and Dignity and Catholic Charities-Social Concerns Ministry regarding the 2020 elections.

In a time when long-standing friendships and family relationships may be in a state of unease over political views, the reminder to listen first and seek understanding hit home.

Disagreements among those who are Catholic can be particularly painful, especially when those “uncivil words prevail.”

I am looking forward to better conversations, practicing the model of love we hear in the Gospels, being more clear in sharing my own position, and more respectful in describing that of others this election season.

‘Congratulations’ to Mickey Lentz and her 60 years of service to the archdiocese

Thank you for your articles and photos in the Sept. 25 issue of The Criterion celebrating Mickey Lentz’s 60 years of service to the archdiocese.

Several years ago, I taught her granddaughters at St. Barnabas School in Indianapolis. I knew Mickey to be a loving grandmother attending school events, a volunteer at Christmas delivering food to a needy family, and someone who was a friendly leader to the teachers in the archdiocese.

Congratulations, Mickey!
