Welcome to NCR Today

 |  NCR Today

NCR Today is the group blog of the National Catholic Reporter. Our diverse team of bloggers has different interests -- the politics of the church and secular society (and the interaction between the two), culture, management of the institution, and more.

What's out-of-bounds on "NCR Today," the group blog of the National Catholic Reporter? Almost nothing. Our diverse team of bloggers has different interests -- the politics of the church and secular society (and the interaction between the two), culture, management of the institution, and more -- but mostly "NCR Today" aims to inform readers about the events, people, trends and issues of concern to American Catholics. If NCR the newspaper is the gourmet meal, an occasion to relish, then "NCR Today" is high-quality (no trans fats) fast-food. A quick stop for nourishment, even a guilty pleasure, on the road of Catholic life. We suggest you visit two or three times a day to get the latest news and views from our bloggers.

Plus, join the fray. Your comments -- agree, disagree, enlighten, inform, amuse, engage -- are most welcome. While "almost nothing" is off-limits, we do monitor comments before posting. So if you're inclined toward ad hominem attacks, vicious rants, foul language, or other such blather (and you know who you are) don't expect to see your input reflected in the comments. Otherwise, however, it's an open forum.

Welcome!
