Become a Patron of the Catholic Arts
A Personal Appeal by Joseph Pearce
It’s hard to believe that the St. Austin Review is now in its seventeenth year. I have been blessed to be its editor since its birth, way back in 2001, and have always considered my role as editor to be a true labour of love.
As we move forward I’d really like to be able to move up to another level with regard to the impact we can make on the culture. Although we continue to produce a top quality magazine, in my view the best there is and unique in what we offer, we have always been hampered in getting the word out because of our lack of resources. I am, therefore, making this personal appeal in the hope that you might want to join me in my efforts to transform the culture of death into a culture of life through the power of Catholic goodness, truth and beauty. I am in need of your help as an ally or as a comrade in arms in the struggle to build a Catholic Cultural Revival in the twenty-first century. Might you be able to become a patron of the Catholic arts by supporting our crusade for beauteous truth?
Although we can already claim to be one of the finest Catholic publications in the world, we are handicapped by our inability to make ourselves known to the wider world. There are tens of thousands of people out there who would benefit from reading the invigorating and edifying articles that we publish. The problem is that they don’t even know that we exist. With your help, we can make ourselves known to a world that is so much in need of what we offer. This is why I sometimes consider StAR to be the best kept secret in the Catholic world. It’s not a secret that I want to keep. On the contrary, I want to spread the news of our existence from the hilltops! This will only be possible if you step forward to join me in the noble cause to reclaim the culture for Christ.

Please do join me in the struggle to transform our world. Together we can make the StAR shine brighter in a world in need of the goodness, truth and beauty of Christian culture.
Thanks so much for being one of the wise men who follow the StAR and for considering becoming one of those who will lead others to it.
Yours in the light of Christ,
