In the paper this week
This week’s issue is the biggest of the year. It’s a 36-page double issue covering Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
It’s hard to pick out the highlights, but I should mention Amy Welborn’s piece on Pope Benedict and the Christ Child, George Weigel on the Second Coming, Abbot Aidan Bellenger of Downside on the Real Presence and the “real absence”, Hollywood actor Gabriel Byrne on confession and psychoanalysis, Fr Aidan Nichols OP on whether the post-conciliar Church is truly the Church of Tradition and our indepth review of the year.
This is, of course, just a snapshot of what’s in the paper. To enjoy the full picture, you can pick up a copy at the back of Catholic churches in Britain and Ireland or subscribe here.
