cover-2017-01-23For the last four years, I’ve had the great honor and privilege of being serving as a columnist for America Magazine, the renowned Jesuit weekly publication. I was humbled to receive the invitation from the editors in January 2013 and it has been a great joy to contribute to such an outstanding publication that is committed to the intersection of faith and culture. But like all good things, this position must come to an end. And has with the turn of the New Year 2017.

After many months of planning, redesigning, prayers, sweat, and tears, the editorial staff at America has launched an ambitious and exciting redesign of the formerly weekly periodical (Here is editor-in-chief Matt Malone, SJ’s introduction to the new magazine). It will now come out twice-a-month and have the feel (both aesthetically and in weight) of some of the great secular long-form periodicals (think The Atlantic Monthly or The New Yorker). As a part of the redesign and re-visioning process, America has decided to suspend the tradition of staff  columnists, hence the end of my tenure in that capacity along with my colleagues who have previously or concurrently served in that role.

Though I won’t be writing as regularly for America, you can be sure that I’ll appear in those illustrious pages from time to time. As a way of celebrating this new milestone in America‘s history, I offer a retrospective of my columns from 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016.

I wish to thank my wonderful colleagues and editors for four wonderful years, and I wish the new America magazine tremendous success!
