    Msgr. Sullivan, thank you for your priesthood and thank you for the work you do including being apart of The Catholic Channel. Sorry if this particular blog is not the best way to contact you but because of my limited technological skills…….here I am.
    I was listening to your Just Love program this morning and heard your guest talk about the terrorist not being fundamentalist but dissenters. We as Catholics believe that the Eucharist is the Body and Blood Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ. One of the pillars of our belief is John chapter 6: Fundamentalism. I ask you to read the Koran yourself. It may become clearer the Jihad is one of the pillars of Islam: Fundamentalism. thank you .
