In this week’s print edition of The Catholic Herald, Archbishop Leo Cushley offers a moving eyewitness account of Benedict XVI’s resignation on the first anniversary of that momentous day. Architect Ptolemy Dean discusses his plans to give visitors to Westminster Abbey a striking new view of the shrine of St Edward the Confessor. Quentin de la Bédoyère asks why young Japanese men are opting for virtual relationships with female cartoon characters. Kristina Cooper explains why Pope Francis is embracing the Charismatic movement and David Twiston Davies raises an eyebrow at the Sun newspaper’s prayer campaign to end Britain’s heavy rains.
Having been unable to sell in churches for well over a year due to the pandemic, we are now inviting readers to support the Herald by investing in our future. We have been a bold and influential voice in the church since 1888, standing up for traditional Catholic culture and values.
Please join us on our 130 year mission by supporting us. We are raising £250,000 to safeguard the Herald as a world-leading voice in Catholic journalism and teaching. For more information from our chairman on contributing to the Herald Patron's Fund, click here
