the Culture Project in action

Hats off to Mike Puccetti of Albuquerque, New Mexico, who took up the challenge of our Culture Project 1: Defending the Pope. Mr. Puccetti began with a letter to the editor of the local newspaper, correcting some inaccuracies in an editorial that had criticized Pope Benedict. But after a bit of back-and-forth with the editor, what emerged was a full op-ed column in the Albuquerque Journal.
Mike Puccetti took some time, expended some effort, and produced a very persuasive defense of the Holy Father, which could now influence thousands of his neighbors-- in a way that a syndicated column from some "talking head" far away could not possibly duplicate. Bravo!
Now here's a challenge to thousands of other Catholic Culture readers: If Mike Puccetti could do it, why can't you?
