It came as a shock to learn that Father John Dietzen died (CR, March 31). Evidently because an old picture was used in his column, most of us readers had no idea of his advancing age. We will miss him very much.
For years I have found Father Dietzen’s columns informative and interesting. He always seemed to know what average people were wondering about. Many times I could show his column to someone who expressed confusion over some aspect of the Catholic faith, and his explanations were reassuring.
I hope someone else will take up the Q-and-A format of exploring Catholic topics.
