From The Tablet...

It's Friday again, so that means the weekly rollout of the World's Best Catholic Paper.

Powerful editorial on the Code, on this, its day of release. And a cover piece on Mary Magdalene with this goodie: "Beyond the myth of her ‘bloodline’ is the real debate that as the first witness to the risen Christ she could have a better claim as founder of the Church than Paul himself...."

From the humble US correspondent, a brief on the aforementioned (but still very exciting) Sirius deal which'll bring the New York archdiocese's envisioned "Catholic Channel" to the satellite airwaves, starting in the fall.
