A few evenings ago, my husband and I had the pleasure of catching up with Patrick Madrid, a best-selling Catholic author and publisher of Envoy Magazine. He is the director of the Envoy Institute of Belmont Abbey College and is developing a cadre of collaborators to be fellows of the Institute and contribute actively to the Institute's programs, publications, conferences, and online activities. Their Institute's Board of Advisors provides a sounding board and strategic direction on an ongoing basis.
I strongly encourage all readers out there to link to Patrick's website below and subscribe to Envoy Magazine. You can even give it a test drive if you want to just have a look-see. Simply stated, Envoy's mission is to prepare us to "be always ready to give a reason for the HOPE that is you" emphasis mine, (1 Peter 3:15). With nearly 70 million Catholics in America, the astounding majority of us do not practice our faith. That is truly a shame. If you're part of the majority or know someone who is, I'd like to offer you some hope through a challenge: consider a gift subscription to Envoy. You won't be disappointed.
