Welcome to Rama Coomaraswamy Catholic Writings
We regret to inform you that Dr Rama Coomaraswamy has passed away on July 19th, 2006.
And we truly hope that you continue the dialogue that Dr/Fr Coomaraswamy has begun
Over the course of several years I have written a number of articles dealing with the changes in the Catholic Church subsequent to Vatican II. Most of these have been written in order to clarify my own thinking on the issues involved; some have been written in response to requests from others. They reflect in many ways a personal journey or rather, my own struggles to remain Catholic and to pass on the Faith as I understood it to my children. In offering them to others it is my hope that they also will derive some benefit from them.
As it is sometimes difficult to get controversial material
published, and because I frequently get requests from other parts of the world
for copies of this material, it seems best to make them available on the
Internet. While the material is copyrighted, readers are free to download and
use the material in any way which is appropriate.
Recognizing that some of the material is controversial and
that I am quite capable of being in error, I would welcome any corrections based
on sound Catholic doctrine, and of course am willing to respond to questions
that readers may have. An e-mail address is provided.
My own background is perhaps of some pertinence. Born in
the United States, much of my early education was in India, England and Canada.
For many years I was a cardiovascular and cardiac surgeon on the staff of Albert
Einstein College of Medicine in New York. I was chief of Cardiovascular and
Thoracic Surgery at Stamford Hospital in Connecticut for five years and also
practiced at Greenwich Hospital, also in Connecticut. Subsequent to cardiac
problems, I retired from surgery and retrained in Psychiatry and also taught at
Albert Einstein in this field. In addition, I was also professor of
Ecclesiastical History at the St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Ridgefield
Connecticut for a period of five years.
At the same time, I wish to thank the many individuals
with whom I have discussed these issues in the past and all those who have
assisted me in achieving a better understanding of the Catholic faith. I would
only ask that readers remember me in their prayers.
Rama P. Coomaraswamy, M.D., F.A.C.S.
