Catholic World Report is a free online magazine that examines the news from a faithfully Catholic perspective. After more than 20 years as the leading Catholic journal of news, analysis, and commentary, CWR moved its content entirely online—no subscription required—in January 2012.

CWR provides full coverage of the news and events affecting the Church around the world, offering in-depth analysis while exploring issues the mainstream media avoids. It features exclusive interviews, covers a host of relevant topics, and offers an unwavering commitment to the truth in light of the Gospel.

As a nonprofit, CWR is able to bring the wisdom of the Church to bear on the news thanks to donations from readers like you. Please help us continue this important mission by giving now!
