Hans Küng deserves a less sour assessment

I loved the April 23 issue: the reflections of Archbishop Gomez and the pope were wonderful, Fr. Rolheiser’s reflection on beauty was poignant, and Msgr Antall’s sermon about Barabbas was very powerful.

The one sour note in the issue was the unsigned news brief about Fr. Hans Küng. Such a remarkable man’s death should not serve as an occasion to drag out all the criticism of him. If such editorializing must be included in our diocesan magazine, perhaps it should at least lend the name of a specific person who holds that opinion rather than leaving it unsigned — as if everyone shares this view.
