CONVERTS

Their Catholic Experience

Sta.-Your contributor Henry Edwards's v i e ws cannot be allowed to go unchallenged. It is over 20 years since 1 was received into the Church and during that time, much of it as a lone convert," I have never experienced the slightest prejudice against myself (or against any other converts) from either cradle Catholics or nonCatholics. On the contrary I have always been regarded as of equal standing in religion, in all the various parishes, counties and countries in which I have lived.

Would Mr. Edwards have us believe that priests who are also converts are not considered to be true Catholics or that cradle Catholics hesitate to send their children to Catholic schools if some of the teachers are converts? Surely the parable of the labourers in the vineyard is the best answer to those who hold such views.
