The article presents information about the periodical "Commonweal." The periodical "Commonweal," has lately been driven by hardship to cut back from weekly to bi-weekly publication. The frame of reference of "Commonweal," is almost wholly secular. It is understandable that "Commonweal," whose contributors are academically sophisticated, should find supernaturalism implausible. "Commonweal" is more likely to ridicule fellow Catholics who strike it as backward, than unbelievers, pornographers, and atheists.
