Much of The Catholic Herald’s content – letters, reviews, news, extra comment and features – is not available online.

This week, Fr Gerald O’Collins replies to Philip Pullman; Ed West meets atheist-turned-Catholic philosopher John Cottingham; Damian Thompson reports from the Proms; and Bishop John Jukes explains that at the age of 87 he still cherishes the gift of lifelong celibacy.
