Calling all papal visit bloggers and writers!

If you're a writer — amateur or professional — who's planning to cover the papal visit to the United States, New Advent wants to hear from you. Please send me an email (knight@newadvent.org) to let me know where I can find your website, feed or social media pages during the event.

I'll be representing New Advent at the World Meeting of Families. It will be a historic week for the Church in the United States, and we want to make sure that the best of Catholic writing is featured on New Advent throughout the week. I'm especially interested to hear from other writers who will be on the ground in Havana, Washington, New York or Philadelphia.

News tips related to the papal visit are also most welcome. Thank you!

—Kevin Knight (Founder & Editor, New Advent)
