A Good Sign
The Long Island Catholic has long accepted ads from a local Jesuit retreat house that holds zen sittings. The paper has even printed an article on the practice of zen. Since that article was published on July 13th Catholics have been writing (and the paper to their credit has been printing) many dissenting letters that question the wisdom of promoting zen. It is good to see there are those who can see the problem with promoting non-Catholic prayer methods while a majority of Catholics don't even bother to pray the Mass on Sundays.
