As many of you know, Thomas Peters, who wrote the blog "American Papist," was gravely injured in an accident earlier this year. Today, friends of his have launched an all day appeal for funds to help him recover. As many of you can guess, Mr. Peters and I do not agree about much. Sadly, our personal relations have also been unpleasant. But, he is a young man in a frightful situation, and if you can spare a prayer or a contribution, I am sure he and his family would greatly appreciate it. As Catholics, we are called to charity, if not always to mutual agreement.
