To the Editor:

At 88, I never have seen the Catholic Church subjected to so many subtle to brutal attacks.

She must be doing something right. For 2,000 years, she has withstood worse, and she is still here. I would bet that she will still be here 2,000 years from now stronger than ever.

I also would bet that none of these wimpy wishy-washy, you-can-eat-your-cake-and-have-it-too denominations will be. Wanna bet?
