Paradoxical Priest

Thank you for "Glimpses of the Heavens" (November 29), Michael Lenehan's interview with Chicago priest John Kartje. The paradox of the scientist who believes in and serves God is a truer emblem of the Catholic priesthood in practice than the sad images of sexual abuse with which we have been so bombarded in the mainstream media this year. It is encouraging to see the Reader spreading the Good News.
