Religious periodicals have sometimes been involved in political and social controversy. La Bonne Nouvelle, parish bulletin in Notre-Dame de Grâce of Québec, distinguishes itself by having survived four years to repeated complaints of Premier Louis-Alexandre Taschereau while ignoring the several cautions of Cardinal Villeneuve. How could a periodical survive so long while being criticised by such high authorities? This article aims to better understand the mechanisms of ecclesiastical discipline and how it could be affected by the relations of Church and politics.
