This week we report on Archbishop Mennini’s call for strong resistance to the introduction of assisted suicide in the UK and we remember Fr Mark Elvins, the well-known Catholic author, who passed away on May 1.

We also bring you an exclusive piece, where we ask Bishop Philip Egan, Fr Tim Finnigan, Dr Joseph Shaw, Mac McLernon and Elizabeth Scalia: “What’s the point of Catholic blogging?” Meanwhile, Joseph Seferta explains how to unite the Eastern and Western Church, Fr Alexander-Lucie Smith reveals how long Mass should last and Stuart Reid pleads for no more GK Chesterton. Will Heaven also exposes the heroic husband behind war-time prime minister, Winston Churchill and Lord Deben tells us why Pope Francis’s next encyclical will unsettle us all.
