online, we decided to try to be open to any and all questions. Readers haven’t disappointed us, sending questions ranging from how to improve their prayer life, to how to live in relationships chastely and well, to deep theological questions. All this indicates a hunger for knowledge of the Catholic faith. Deep down, people want to hear the truth.”

Fr. Edward requests the readers, and all RC members, keep him, and the RC website in their prayers, and he asks patience if all questions are not answered immediately.

“Rest assured that every question is read and pondered,” he said. “And you are all in my prayers.”
