Much of The Catholic Herald’s content – letters, reviews, news, extra comment and features – is not available online. This week, in the first of a three-part series, Fr Ian Ker tackles the enormous misunderstanding around Cardinal Newman; Mark Greaves finds out why an order of nuns gave up a beautiful and historic private school to work in a deprived part of Essex; and Fr Anthony Symondson reviews a biography of George Myers, the builder who brought Pugin to life. Mary O’Regan, meanwhile, argues that the papal visit is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for Catholics to speak up for their faith.
