Catholic World News News Feature
Special CWN subscription offer: A free-year of Catholic World Report! May 28, 2004
Here is the most exciting subscription offer yet for CWNews!
If you live in the United States, you can get a year's subscription to Catholic World Report , the international monthly news magazine, ABSOLUTELY FREE with a one-year subscription to Catholic World News!
That's right: a year of Catholic World Report -- ordinarily a $39.95 value-- can be yours at no cost if you enter-- or renew -- a full-year CWN subscription now at only $30! There's no catch-- just a few important details on how to take advantage of this unique offer. Read on!
If you aren't already familiar with Catholic World Report , you really should be. Published by Ignatius Press, and edited by the same team that brings you CWN headlines every weekday, Catholic World Report doesn't just provide in-depth coverage of important events in the Catholic world; the magazine helps to shape those events!
For 14 years, Catholic World Report has set the standard for tough, no-holds-barred analysis-- always loyal to the Church and her teaching magisterium, but never afraid to take a controversial stand. Just consider how CWR has handled the most controversial issues of the day:
- In April 2004, after the president of the US bishops' conference claimed that the sex-abuse scandal is "history," CWR devoted its cover story to the question: "History?" -- Or does the scandal continue?
- CWR broke a taboo with a cover story on "The Gay Priest Problem" in November 2000-- two years before the scandal hit the headlines.
- In fact, the first CWR cover story on the sex-abuse scandal appeared in 1993! And another CWR cover story, warning that same-sex "marriage" was coming to America, appeared 1996-- eight years before the fateful court decision in Massachusetts!
Catholic World Report has also taken a special interest in the battles over the Catholic liturgy. When American liturgists argued that the people were clamoring for "inclusive-language" translations of liturgical texts, CWR commissioned a nationwide poll to prove that, actually, most people prefer traditional translations!
With valuable contacts throughout the Catholic world, CWR can regularly schedule interviews with the "movers and shakers" within the Church. Just this year, CWR has published extensive interviews with Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz, who explains why he doesn't accept the authority of the National Review Board; and with Major Archbishop Lubomyr Husar, the head of the Ukrainian Catholic Church, who explains why there should be a Ukrainian patriarchate. A few years ago, Time magazine conducted a lengthy question-and-answer session with Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, then published only a few portions of the interview. Disappointed with that result, Cardinal Ratzinger looked for another English-language magazine to publish the entire interview--and quickly contacted Catholic World Report !
And there's much more in each 64-page issue of the magazine. Catholic World Report has recently published reviews of films such as The Passion, The Lord of the Rings , and even the Matrix series. CWR gave readers a behind-the-scenes look at the restoration work on the Sistine Chapel, and the latest scientific analysis of the Shroud of Turin. You'll find book reviews, opinion columns, photo essays, and feisty editorials.
Published 11 times a year-- with one combined August-September issue-- Catholic World Report is the foremost Catholic news magazine for the English-speaking world. And now you can have it free with your CWN subscription.
