We’re thrilled to announce that our friend Bishop Robert Reed has been named editor-at-large of longtime favorite Catholic magazine, Catholic Digest. I grew up reading this magazine at my grandmother’s house and am now a subscriber; I enjoy its fresh angles on Catholic living. For a magazine that has been around for over 80 years, this one has remained current, informative and fun. You’ll recognize quite a few familiar names among contributors to the magazine, including Danielle Bean, Pat Gohn, and Jeff Young — all CatholicMom.com contributing writers!
Bishop Robert Reed, an auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Boston and president of CatholicTV, will bring his communications experience to a new audience. Readers of CatholicMom.com are familiar with CatholicTV’s “The Gist” program, which we share one Saturday per month through CatholicTV’s generosity.
In the coming months I hope to contribute to the mission of Catholic Digest by speaking to you directly as a priest and a pastor — not as one who has all the answers, but as someone who, as a priest for 32 years, through my ministry to families and individuals, has gained some insight into the joys and sorrows and struggles that we all experience. I hope to offer some advice on the ways we can all do better at living our faith in the particular situations of life in which we find ourselves. Although I’m in the public eye through my work on CatholicTV, I think of myself primarily as a pastor, as a parish priest.
We look forward to the wonderful spiritual fruits that will come from Bishop Reed’s work with Catholic Digest and offer him our most sincere congratulations.
