In this week’s issue leading Catholic blogger Fr John Zuhlsdorf explains why every diocese in the world should have a vicar for online ministry. Edward Pentin profiles the “black nobility” of Rome and agnostic Heide Hanford explains how she coped when her daughter decided to become a Catholic nun.

Harvard political philosopher Michael Sandel tells Greg Watts that the Church should have a role in the public square. Paul Hurley, SVD, explains why Oscar Wilde longed to be a Catholic. Andrew M Brown admires the Coen brothers’ story of a modern-day Job, A Serious Man. Petroc Trelawny savours a biography of Catholic convert James Lees-Milne and Brian Welter applauds a perceptive new study of Pope Benedict’s theology.

Stuart Reid calls for a dramatic reduction in extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion and Pastor Iuventus despairs at some Catholics’ consumerist approach to the faith.

Only a small proportion of the articles will go online tomorrow. You may like to consider taking out a subscription so you don’t miss out.
