Pope makes Catholicism look good [Letter]

Right on, Susan Reimer ("A pope for the disaffected," Jan. 3)! I admire Pope Francis for his example of true Christianity. He makes Jesus real again.

Although I have considered going back to Catholicism, I choose not to be harnessed by the rituals and doctrine again. I will continue my spiritual walk with Jesus in a non-denominational church that enables me to sustain my faith and serve with the gift of God's grace.

Vicki Weaver, Indianapolis, Ind.

    This week nearly 300 bishops will be meeting in Baltimore ("Nation's Catholic bishops gather in Baltimore Monday," Nov. 9).

    The pope has spoken out on climate change ("Pope Francis frames climate change as moral issue," June 18).
