America is a magazine published by the Jesuit community for over a hundred years for Catholics living in the United States. Included in the magazine are news stories on events home and abroad that are relevant to the Catholic faith, opinion pieces on the state of Catholicism in the United States, and spiritual advice for readers to call upon in their daily lives.
America is known well for publishing news stories on events home and abroad that are relevant to the Catholic faith. One writer covers the story of Pope Francis travelling to Albania to reaffirm ties between the larger Catholic and Muslim communities in the face of conflict in the Middle East. Francis’ words, “Authentic religion is a source of peace and not of violence.”
Each issue of America contains opinion pieces on the state of Catholicism in the United States. How might church leaders maintain the strength of the Catholic community that has been witnessed in decades past? How to appeal to youth in the community in ways that truly reflect Catholic and wider Christian principles? These are just some of the questions tackled each month.
Readers of America are treated to spiritual advice to call upon in their daily lives. Often published are real, firsthand stories of readers whose faith in God has helped them to overcome truly terrifying things. In those times, it helps so much to know that we aren’t alone.
