Wondering why Cardinal Joseph Bernardin and Aurelius Prudentius Clemens seem to be the talk of the town lately? It’s because the February issue of First Things is arriving in mailboxes across America and all your friends have already read George Weigel’s chronicling of The End of the Bernardin Era and Robert Louis Wilken’s Culture and the Light of Faith in which he explores Christianity’s tendency to embrace and preserve what is best in the thought, art, literature, and science that preceded it. The issue is filled with many other excellent articles, reviews, reports, and poetry so be sure to take a look .
