"Life is not so much beginnings and endings as it is middles, middles that don't measure up -- and our happiness depends on how we come to terms with the pale reflections of our dreams. (Paul D. Zimmerman, "Middles and Muddles," review of film "Sunday Bloody Sunday," Newsweek, September 27, 1971, 106)

Global Pulse - A Fine New EJournal

JTulipsFind out more about this excellent initiative.

Dear Friends:

I am very impressed with a new online publication and suggest you have a look at it – Global Pulse Magazine 

Edited by The Tablet's former Rome correspondent, Robert Mickens, the daily is a rich blend of stories from leading Catholic publishers in the US (Commonweal Magazine), France (La Croix), Asia (UCAN) and Australia (Eureka Street). You can find out more about the magazine here: http://www.globalpulsemagazine.com/about

The great value of Global Pulse Magazine is that readers hear form voices across the world and that's something we can all benefit from. We are moving ahead in a Church being changed by Pope Francis who wants urgently to include people previously considered of marginal significance in the Church.

It's very inexpensive to subscribe – US$22 or under 15 Pounds Sterling. I'm told by the people at Global Pulse Magazine that they are keeping the price as low as they can so subscribers from poorer countries can also buy it.

Global Pulse Magazine is offering you a month's free subscription so you can see its value. Just email its Publisher Father Michael Kelly SJ at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and he'll do the rest. Then you can make your own judgment.

Best wishes
