Being where the culture is…

The Church can seem slow when responding to the culture. We have 2000 years of wisdom to draw upon, but so often it’s like we’re learning to crawl when the rest of the culture is already running. 

Which brings me to the fund drive InsideCatholic is doing this week…

Here at IC, we’re not only dedicated to engaging readers on relevant issues, but also making sure we’re reaching them in the first place. That’s why we made the risky decision to go online almost four years ago, before any other Catholic print publication.  

Since then, IC staff has worked very hard to bring quality content to you, free of charge. Although we rarely ask for it, we need your help now as we begin a new chapter in our 29 year history. Not only will we continue providing the excellent content you’ve come expect, but we’ll breach new territory…

Our editorial coverage will expand to include business and economics, and the ways Catholic Social Teaching interacts with and informs both. This means new writers and engaging articles.

Additionally, we’re going where readers are going… mobile devices. The other night, a mom friend of mine told me she bought a smart phone because it’s much easier to read articles and check email that way. With that in mind, IC will soon be unveiling a new “digital print” format to make our content more accessible through apps for mobile devices.

The staff of InsideCatholic has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to analyzing the trends in publishing. There’s a lot of excitement around here about the fact that we’ll soon be able to experience what we loved about print in a new print format.

This has always been a donor-driven apostolate and we can’t continue our mission without your support. If you’re a regular visitor, I urge you to consider giving $10 a month. Or a one time gift of whatever is comfortable for you. No amount is too small. (Or too big, of course.)

Please consider investing in the next phase of InsideCatholic. You’re going to be happy with the result. And as a bonus, you get to use our cool new buttons below.

Crisis Magazine Comments Policy

This is a Catholic forum. As such:

  1. All comments must directly address the article. “I tell you, on the day of judgment men will render account for every careless word they utter.” (Matthew 12:36)
  2. No profanity, ad hominems, hot tempers, or racial or religious invectives. “And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” (Ephesians 4:32)
  3. We will not tolerate heresy, calumny, or attacks upon our Holy Mother Church or Holy Father. “And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16:18)
  4. Keep it brief. No lengthy rants or block quotes. “For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” (James 4:14)
  5. If you see a comment that doesn’t meet our standards, please flag it so a moderator may remove it. “Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness.” (Galatians 6:1)
  6. All comments may be removed at the moderators’ discretion. “But of that day and hour no one knows…” (Matthew 24:36)
  7. Crisis isn’t responsible for the content of the comments box. Comments do not represent the views of Crisis magazine, its editors, authors, or publishers. “Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God… So each of us shall give account of himself to God.” (Romans 14:10, 12)
