St. Anthony Messenger has come a long way.

First published on June 1, 1893, the magazine grew into one of the principal Catholic family magazines in the United States. In its publishing history, the magazine has featured interviews with prominent Catholics, and includes educational, inspirational, and informative articles and columns each month.

St. Anthony Messenger now offers a digital edition each month—FREE to its print subscribers—which can be accessed via a computer, iPhone, iPad, Android, or Playbook. What’s so fun about putting together a digital edition each month is that the editors are able to infuse the pages with rich, additional content: videos, audio samples, and links to other products from Franciscan Media.

Now is the perfect time to check this out. Our January issue—which will be published very soon—is filled with terrific, faith-enriching content. In the issue you’ll find:

+ An interview with Sister Helen Prejean about her ongoing fight to end the death penalty

+ An article about how we should care for our entire being: body, mind, and spirit

+ A profile of New York sports commentator Chris ‘Mad Dog’ Russo

+ Ways to find the Divine all around us
