Kudos to staff writer Maura Dolan for her excellent and extensive coverage of women's role in the Catholic Church (Part I, Aug. 16). Because of it I have read closely the recently released pastoral letter on women to which I respond: Why is it that the male hierarchy of the Catholic Church is so hung up on secrecy when it comes to the advancement of women? Tucked away in his Pastoral Letter on women's role in the church, Archbishop Roger Mahony offers an ideal to women by quoting John Paul II ". . . women by looking to Mary find in her the secret of living their femininity with dignity.

All the preparations for the comfort and security of the Pope make me proud that I am an American. America with all its various ethnic groups--we are a loving people who put our best foot forward. Viva the United States--starting with the President who represented our country in welcoming the Vicar of Christ on earth, to the Marines at the helicopter, the protective security, all the way from the Secret Service, to our own Los Angeles smart-looking uniformed police, to the people that worked so hard to plan this huge undertaking involving so many people.

McFarland, 64, had been bishop of Reno-Las Vegas Diocese for the last 10 years and became known for his outspoken opposition to the Equal Rights Amendment and abortion. Meanwhile, three new auxiliary bishops were appointed by the Pope for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, the most populous and heavily Latino archdiocese in the United States.

In addition, Archbishop Roger Mahony said the archdiocese will increasingly use the pulpit and church bulletins to publicize the deadline and offer counseling for meeting amnesty requirements.

Thousands of grim law enforcement officers from throughout California today attended the funeral of Officer Tina Kerbrat, the first Los Angeles policewoman slain in the line of duty. "Where's Mommy?" asked Kerbrat's 3-year-old daughter, Nicole, as the mahogany casket was carried into St. John Baptist de la Salle Catholic Church. "Are we going to go see Mommy die now?" the puzzled child asked.

I'm sick and tired of newspapers, TV and movies bashing the Catholic Church. "Clashing With Her Church" (Feb. 11) should have been titled "Cashing In on Her Church." As for Uta Ranke-Heinemann's remarks that she can't understand a church that believes in the rights of the unborn but does not try to stop the war, she hasn't been reading the press or watching the news; from the Pope down, there has been a constant flow of anti-war and peace statements including (those of) Los Angeles Archbishop Roger Mahony.
