“Apropos” : A Fond Farewell

Post  otremer6 on Thu Feb 21, 2013 11:18 pm

It is with a very heavy heart that we write that today we received in the mailbox the final issue of perhaps the finest Catholic journal produced in the English language, Apropos, edited by Scotsman Tony Fraser. To say that the absence of this publication will hurt the cause of printed truth would be a distinct understatement. Of the tiny handful of publications still in print that had a sensus Catholicus Fraser's Apropos was head and shoulders above the rest.

When Tony's father, the great Hamish Fraser, died in 1985 many in the Catholic world, including this writer, felt orphaned. Hamish had been publishing his invaluable publication Approaches for over twenty years, providing English-speaking readers with the cream of European Catholic analysis and in so doing kept us informed and in a fighting spirit ("Keep on praying and punching", was one of his oft-heard endearing remarks). Hamish tackled issues great and small with that uncanny sense of what was the most important thing to talk about at that particular moment. He didn't merely react to events in Church and State and then write about them; he wrote about things long forgotten which he brilliantly showed were still relevant to what has happening in the here and now. A former Communist who had a famous conversion he became so thoroughly Catholic that it was astonishing. To read him and learn from him was to become a better Christian. It is one of my joys in life that I had the honor to know him fairly well during the last half-dozen years of his life, even having the pleasure of hosting him in my own home on one of his American visits. His Catholicity, his erudition, his delightful sense of humor made him more than a journalist covering the most important issues of the day; it made him our second father.
