Last minute gift idea for a person who may be hard to buy for? A good source for yourself?
At the time of this writing, The Catholic Herald has lowered its web subscription rate from 38 (US $58.80) to 10 (US $15.50).
You get the entire newspaper, not just the items on their webpage.
I don’t live in England, but I find what is going on there interesting. In a sense, they are a few years ahead of the US in the culture wars. Catholics there have a tougher row to hoe in the public square… or should I say ‘common’? It is interesting to see, for example, how they publish side by side with the Ordinary Form, the Extraordinary Form liturgical calendar notes each week along with places and schedules where you can find it.
Another advantage is that you don’t have to wait for it to come in the mail. If you are not in the UK that takes a while. And it has been a growing problem, because postal rates are climbing for small publications.
And you have the whole thing archived online: less clutter. They have an archive you can access going back to 2003.

(Too bad they don’t have a FRZ promo code!)
I think very highly of the paper and the people who put it together. Please give The Catholic Herald some support. Good Catholic publications need our support.
