Our friends/clients at America magazine this month celebrated their 100th anniversary. As a bonus to our blog readers, here’s the story we distributed this week marking the momentous occasion. As reporter Chaz Muth observed in the story, “Only a handful of magazines have been around longer than America, and its impact on American Catholicism and society has been substantial.”

Congratulations from all of us at Catholic News Service.

  1. Jim: It’s too bad you missed the 11-week series I did two years ago on the first 60 years of The Wanderer for our 140th anniversary. It was a great piece of scholarship. A Benedictine from St. John’s in Collegeville translated a large number of news stories and editorials (the paper was published in German until 1930), touching on all the major issues facing the American Church, from Vatican I to World War I and the Great Depression.
