Catechism of the Catholic Church (675)

'Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.' ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church (675)

Catholic Herald: Great New Look But Why Not Report the News?

I note with amazement that the Catholic Herald online magazine has decided not to report the news of the mass book heist at the Vatican while it has reported some other stories in the past day or so.

I wonder why.

Update: I have been alerted to the fact that the story has been linked to in the Herald's morning must reads...

Synodgate, I would have thought, deserves a little more coverage than that.

Because the news was only really made public two days ago and it takes over a week to put an issue together? If we don't see the story mentioned at all in the next fortnight of issues I certainly see your point.

Thanks, I mean the on line edition updated daily.

Oh yes I see you even said online in the post, cheerfully withdrawn!

I changed the post in light of your comment.

Not sure that I agree with you on the "look" of the Catholic Herald now. The cover design is very similar to a magazine called "The Tablet" which is bad for the soul.

Have you seen their feature "The best of the Catholic blogosphere"? They always choose something from John Allen of Crux (which I regard as a rather unreliable site). Never Finigan, Blake, Z, Lambert, or even Bones or Eccles!

Oh, and I forgot AATW (and many others).

The Catholic Herald seems to have suffered a hostile takeover, like the Church in general. How Catholic is it anymore?

Why not report the news? Probably for the same reason that out-of- comfort-zone Truth (which, let's face it, is usually outofcomfortzone) is often put in pile labeled, 'need to know? nah.'

Stopped getting the Herald some years ago as it was getting tepid.Now it looks like the Tablet so is even less tempting.We got it to replace the weak Catholic times.Get Catholic from the Sons of the Holy Reedemer or the Catholic voice from Ireland esp. if you miss Deacon Nick Donelly. Most of the rest is not catholic and will damage your soul.Dont get me started on my dioscesan paper!

Bones,

You raise an important matter. The danger of selection of news and of censorship within Catholic papers and comment.

I, being a paying contributor to the Catholic Herald, (in spite of its outrageous price!) have an interest in this. So far my eminently reasonable and objective comments have not been blocked in any way. The editor's “must reads” is, I suspect, a clever way of getting round certain restrictions.

This is not so for another Catholic journal where I have had difficulty in commenting although I reserve judgement since it might simply be my unfamiliarity with the form.

The Blogosphere and comment, is not going to go away. Equally, an increasing number of people, will try to suppress it. We must guard against this.

It now seems that this is so in the Vatican with the Fr Rosica attempt to silence Vox Cantaris, and the criminal theft of the the books relating too the Synod on the Family (not reported as you point out), being but the most obvious.

We must continue to support with clear orthodox comment our Faith, and the Bloggers, clerical and lay who defend it. So keep up the good work.

I suspect, closer to home that Fr Fin has been nobbled, but perhaps that's just my suspicious nature.

What I find most disturbing is the now the general inability of the Catholic press to accept that the Catholic world as it has existed, is falling about our heads. The situation is grave.

For sure that organ of 'transparency' the Tablet will never report on this. It just exposes liberal hypocrisy for what it really is - and we can't have that. I notice though they do have a helpful blog, from Tina, supporting women priests (again) although bizarrely favouring celibate women priests rather than married priests. I never knew 'liberal progressives' split hairs like this.

Some chap said...

The news was in this week's Catholic Herald :)

Unfortunately this week's entire print run of the Catholic Herald has been stolen. I suggest you search under Cardinal Baldisseri's bed.
