Envoy Magazine is the award-winning online and print journal of Catholic thought, published by Patrick Madrid since 1996. It has been the flagship publication of the Envoy Institute.
Graphically, editorially, and in its crisp and vibrant content, Envoy Magazine aims to present the truths of the Catholic Faith in a fresh, contemporary style, featuring today’s top Catholic writers, full-color graphics, and an upbeat, innovative format.
Blessed Pope John Paul II’s call for a “New Evangelization” requires that the Catholic laity be not only knowledgeable about the Faith, but also prepared to explain it intelligently, defend it charitably, and share it effectively. Envoy seeks to be an instrument at the service of the local and universal Church to accomplish this task, one that will prepare them to “be always ready to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you” (1 Peter 3:15).
The primary goal of Envoy Magazine has been to equip Catholics to respond to Christ’s call: “As the Father has sent me, so I send you” (John 20:21). We promise our readers our unswerving commitment to journalistic excellence, aesthetic quality, fidelity to the magisterium, and a charitable and winsome presentation of the Catholic Faith.
The Envoy Institute has taken an indefinite hiatus from publishing the print version of the magazine due to losing its former institutional finding at the end of 2011.
The issues of Envoy Magazine available here are the exact DIGITAL versions of the original paper-&-ink editions. More digital issues will be added soon.
