I find the publications like the Catholic Family News, Remnant, etc depressing.
We know that there are many problems in the Church, we know that there are horrible bishops and plenty of gay priests teaching heresy. We know that Catholics are being mislead by the people who are supposed to be protecting the faith. We know that there are horribly abusive Masses and it is difficult to find faithful Catholicism.
So why not print a publication teaching truth, defending the faith and inspiring?
This Rock does a fine job of this, so does from the Housetops (they might be a little feenyite but they make a great publication) they make a faithful little publication that inspires.
Reading the other magazines is kinda like watching Jerry Springer, they might be faithful but they are also so focused on the crisis in the Church today it can turn you bitter.
I know that being in a silly parish with plenty of dissent sometimes makes me overeact and kinda cynical at times, I need to visit faithful parishes to get a recharge, but I can’t just dwell on the bad.
