COMMONWEAL Magazine's mission is to provide a forum for civil, reasoned debate on the interaction of Faith with contemporary politics & culture. Readers are a passionate audience of educated, committed Catholics, as well as other faith traditions. COMMONWEAL presents well-argued, respectful points of view from across the ideological spectrum. Many readers say COMMONWEAL has helped them weather the sexual-abuse scandal in the Catholic church, questions, and frustrations relating to the role of women, the relationship between religion and politics, and church teachings on sexuality. In an often contentiously divided Catholic church and secular culture, COMMONWEAL's status as an independent journal of opinion encourages conversations that may be difficult in other settings. COMMONWEAL is published monthly; each issue is dedicated to contemporary theology, interreligious dialogue books, and fiction.
