Online releases I hope to find time to read....

I regret not being able to write much of late, but I have not been home long enough to do much posting.

Homiletic and Pastoral Review is one of my favorite Catholic periodicals. It's one of few to which I subscribe and I highly recommend the hard copy. It was originally written for priests to provide homiletic content, but also has a large lay audience, as well.

Each month, HPR puts a lead article online, and lists the remaining that are in that issue. The August/September issue is combined. The rest are monthly.

You may recognize the name of Fr. Kenneth Baker, SJ. He is the managing editor of HPR.

This months article is Our Passover Eucharist, written by Jeremy Holmes.


Adoremus Bulletin, a great place to search for all things liturgical has also put it's Sept edition online.

See the Table of Contents for September here

SANDRO MAGISTER: "La Civiltà Cattolica."

Interesting article by Sandro Magister, on a newspaper which has been in print in the Vatican since 1850. It has an extra director. Mr. Magister examines the significance of this move.

"La Civiltà Cattolica" Now Has an Extra Director – In the Vatican
It's cardinal Tarcisio Bertone. Since he became secretary of state, he has taken much more active control over what is written for the journal. Deleting, modifying, adding. Sometimes commissioning entire articles – like this one, for example, about priests who "desert" and then "come back"

If you don't think His Holiness is following the news, do read this article (hehehehehehehe....)
