Dear Editor:


Thank you for your article on Bill Radke, his journey home and service at Frene Valley. I’m glad for those who have assisted Bill in many ways. Family farming and a different set of working skills for society were still alive and well in the 1960s. Religion had a different seriousness and respect when Bill became a Franciscan. Since then, Holy and unholy games of money, politics and technology have multiplied in their dominance. We can’t go back to Mayberry. 

Pope Francis is having a Synod in Rome to get helpful leadership. May God and all God’s people bless what needs to happen.
