An Open Letter to Archbishop Edward Gilbert :

Your Grace, 

First let me compliment you on the fine work that you have done during your time here as the leader of the Catholic Church in Trinidad and Tobago. I remember when you were first appointed, there was a lot of criticism directed at the fact that you were a white American, and many Catholics felt this represented a new kind of ‘colonization’. I hope you understand it wasn’t anything personal Sir. It’s just that, being Catholics we were simply protecting ourselves from being treated like children ,having a stern parental figure from another country and culture dictating our every move.
