Did you all see the recent Catholic Herald (UK) piece about St Mary of Egypt?
I don’t know what the HELL is going on at my former publication but they published a piece by a feminist about the saint and it was, frankly, vulgar and blasphemous. The writer was perhaps trying to be cutsie or edgy. It was awful.
The Catholic Herald put an editorial note on the thing. But the fact is, THEY PUBLISHED IT ANYWAY.
The great Matthew Hazel has the smoking gun:
Exhibit A: from the above article
Exhibit B: https://t.co/eeK0Jd0qlO
Exhibit C: https://t.co/csR3Kr8wvr
This isn’t even BuzzFeed levels of cringe writing. Let alone that a *Catholic magazine* is voluntarily publishing this trash! Inexplicable on multiple levels. pic.twitter.com/ZxbhpRju1e

This is very sad.
I’ve been quiet about my former publication, but… what were they thinking?
If you want to let the CH know what you think, do NOT contact them without reading the piece first. Be fair. HERE
