This week’s issue of The Catholic Herald features an extract from Cardinal Donald Wuerl’s new book, The Church: Unlocking to the Places Catholics Call Home, in which he poses the question, should churches be sold off to raise funds for the poor? Elsewhere in the paper, Fr Alexander Lucie-Smith advises on the best way to face the Second Coming; Lady Paola Windsor reports on Pope Francis’s first days in office; Fr Peter Malone discusses Babette’s Feast, the new Pontiff’s favourite film; James MacMillan argues a poor Church needs grand music; and Melanie McDonagh says that the Catholic Church was right not to join in the criticism of benefit reforms proposed by Iain Duncan Smith.
