Hello all,

As the subject line says, I'm looking for recommendations for Catholic journals/magazines. My wife is only nominally Catholic, so I feel a bit isolated; looking for a sense of connection with others who take the faith seriously. I'd like to find a magazine that has an attractive presentation, with a sense of the urgency of the life of faith, but also something uplifting that doesn't just beat you down with a lot of bad news. Preferably something that addresses current issues within the Church, but also talks about the spiritual life and the richness of the Catholic tradition.

There were Catholic magazines that used to meet this need, which are now defunct (Caelum Et Terra, Second Spring). I have a subscription to Latin Mass and I like it very much, but it's only quarterly and I wish it came out monthly.

Thanks in advance to anyone who has suggestions to share.

The Dorothy Day guild newsletter is good.

Your Diocese likely has a weekly publication.

Magnificat is magnificant.

Our Sunday Visitor is one that does not get into all the political doom and gloom

First Things may not be exactly what you seek as it is not exclusively Catholic and addresses religion in the public square, but it might interest you and your wife. Much of its content is available online even to non-subscribers. Subscribers can make and read comments which can be great for reading... or not.

Thanks to all who made suggestions. First Things, Magnificat and Our Sunday Visitor are all good in their own way. I'm not familiar with the Lamp but it sounds interesting.

God bless.
