America magazine will turn 108 years old this April, but that is nothing compared to our sister publication La Civiltà Cattolica. Founded in 1850 by Italian Jesuits, La Civiltà Cattolica has a storied history as one of the chief chroniclers of global Catholicism. Pope Francis visited the journal’s headquarters in Rome recently to mark the publication of the journal’s 4,000th issue. He thanked the editors and staff “for having faithfully accompanied all the fundamental passages of my pontificate.” We join our thanks with those of the Holy Father and extend our congratulations and prayerful best wishes to our brothers in Christ. Ad multos annos!
