To the Journal editor:
I was saddened about Sandra (Bonsall's) letter to the editor regarding contraception published on Aug. 5. It might be difficult to realize and accept the fact that one was misguided about a serious matter or a sensitive and heartfelt issue regarding his or her faith.
Those who knowingly or stubbornly misguide in this way will be held accountable. But what about those who were misled? I can imagine that one might feel, or more likely might want to avoid feeling, fear, guilt and regret that their life was not lived according to the Truth. "Do not be afraid," Pope John Paul II told us.
Remember the loving and merciful heart of Christ that you have come to know over all of these years. He will "make all things new" and transform our sins and failings into victories!
