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

This week, we print the full text of a lecture by Archbishop Vincent Nichols at Brixton prison; Desmond O’Grady writes about Mary MacKillop, arguing that only a master novelist can bring her story to life; and catechist Geoff Callister says we need a plan if we are to seize the Benedict Bounce. Plus, Anna Arco writes about her meeting with the Holy Father, and how she almost burst into tears.
