What did I leave off the recommended list?

I left out "America" and "National Catholic Reporter", and others that unfortunately are 'solidly liberal' and frequently question or undermine the teachings of the Church and Holy Father.

I also left out "The Remnant", "New Triumph", "Latin Mass Magazine", "Crying in the Wilderness Newsletter" and others of the 'far right', as these magazines often promote specific agendas which do not always represent Catholicism. I did leave in "The Wanderer", as it often has news stories of interest that other periodicals do not.

Catholic Digest, A Reader's Digest for Catholics with humorous and inspirational columns. I do not recommended this as a Catholic periodical, because it teaches little about Catholic doctrine or specifically Catholic books, and sometimes supports liberal authors.
