Thank you. I just received such a billing in the mail and was very puzzled. Have you published this warning on social media places (FB,Twitter,etc.?)

I, too, received an invoice in the mail from "Readers Payment Service." I realized it was a scam, and was going to notify you. Obviously, someone beat me to the punch. I'm glad you are aggressively pursuing this. How do you think they got your subscription list?

I received the same today but it was from Magazine Payment Services looking to charge $94.95 in two payments for 1 yr/39 issues.I was about to contact you but see you're already on top of it. I also received numerous calls from a 770 exchange which I think are the same people based upon a Google search of the same company name. I did not answer it. Thanks for terrific customer service and a very fine magazine. Best, Wayne

This scam continues. I just received the described "bill" seeking $94.95 with an installment of $47.48.

Someone must have hacked into your computers so they got your subscription list. Do you know what else they gained?

During the cave crisis, at the Cathedral of Saint Michael in Thare, a small village located along Nonghan Lake in northeastern Thailand’s Isaan region, Catholics offered Mass and asked for the intervention of St. Michael the Archangel to protect the young men.
The Catholic Church has renewed efforts to fight racism in the U.S., but Black Lives Matter deserves credit for keeping our attention on racial justice.
