Much of The Catholic Herald’s content – news, features, comment, letters and reviews – is only available to subscribers.
This week, in a commemorative issue marking 50 years since the opening of the Second Vatican Council, 16 writers reflect on its 16 texts. Contributors include Cardinal Murphy-O’Connor, Archbishop Nichols and Bishop Davies. Meanwhile, Dr Edward Norman, a leading Church historian and former Canon Chancellor of York Minster, writes about why he is joining the Catholic Church; Cardinal Pell argues that from Roman times the Church has always promoted women’s wellbeing; and Will Gore says that beneath Jack Kerouac’s hedonism lay a deeply Catholic soul.
