Thankful for this characteristic of Catholic schools

Thank you for the uplifting, faith-filled article on Atticus Maldonado (“The Miracle of Gardendale Street” in the Jan. 26 issue of Angelus), a Downey student who got cancer, and who was healed by the grace of God through prayers of his fellow students and their families.

This story made me feel so happy to be Catholic. It also made me sad to think of secular public schools, where prayer is not permitted, and where students undergoing serious illness might not find this kind of prayer support, or have confidence in God’s love for them.
