Steven Roberts (H-Z Opinion page, January 29) characterization of Joe Biden as a great Catholic because he has a portrait of Pope Francis hanging behind his desk reminds me of some wise advice I received when I was younger, “If someone has a bible on their desk, keep your hand over your wallet.”  

The older mentor that told me that was an extremely devout Catholic, as fine a man as I have ever known.  His point, which I fully agree with, is that true Christians show their faith in their actions and how they live their lives, not in the T-shirts they wear, bumper stickers on their car, or in this case portraits on the wall.
