Coming tomorrow in “On the Square,” R. R. Reno examines the nature of Western self-hatred and the reasons for it. Then, in the second item, to be posted later in the morning, Sarah Hinlicky Wilson reflects on the status of the ecumenical movement (it has its good points and its bad points), and her reasons for walking from Erfurt to Rome.

Until these go up, look at Joe Carter’s Gay Gene Eugenics and George Weigel’s In Defense of Israel’s Legitimacy . And Elizabeth Scalia’s Hating Ourselves to Death and Joseph Bottum’s Publicizing Privacy .

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before July 1.

First Things is a proudly reader-supported enterprise. The gifts of readers like you— often of $50, $100, or $250—make articles like the one you just read possible.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
