Having just finished reading March issue of AD2000 I was again confronted with Mr Westmore's penchant for electronic gadgets to be used in Mass. And the heading "Smartphone apps to bring you closer to God".

Mr Westmore how on earth can an electronic gadget bring you closer to God?

I had this impression that disposition and desire and heart disposed to God would do this and not an app. What about those who will never have an app? Does that mean that they won't be brought closer to God? Mr Westmore surely you don't mean what you said? Surely not! Keep trying, Mr Westmore.

ANNE LASTMAN,
Glen Waverley, Vic.
