An interactive book is being written to promote positive public relations of Catholic priests. The public is encouraged to submit a letter describing the value a priest has had in their life. Most and foremost, the project promotes healing for all Catholics who in a way or another had their faith tested during the scandals involving priests that have made headlines around the world. Letters are responded personally. The book is in progress.
Healing comes in many forms. Gratitude, and thank you notes, are profound for both the writer and the receiver. The faithful can write about divorce, grieving, loss of jobs, happiness, whatever part of life a priest helped them with. Letters to Priests will reflect the values and strengths of the Catholic Church. Priests give up many things, that Catholics in general take for granted. Sharing our gratitude will hopefully promote the depth of healing so many Priests have given to the Catholic community and beyond.
The project aims to also make an outreach to Catholics who are not online by asking the ones who are to request their parish priest's approval to post a note in the Bulletins giving fellow parishioners a chance to participate. Letters should be mailed to P.O. Box 482, Ada, MI 49301.
The online community has been overwhelmingly in support of this project. It will make you proud to be a Catholic. What a great gift to any Catholic!
