We were recently romping our way through Volume 5.6 of Envoy magazine. Yes, we know Volume 5.6 is vague and not very helpful, but Envoy doesnt carry dates anymore. All we can say is that we received Volume 5.6 in early June 2002, and if Envoy had put a date on it, it would be the November-December 2001 issue by our reckoning (we have back issues). We dont mention this to embarrass Envoy, for everyone knows Envoy is way behind schedule. What is perhaps cause for embarrassment is how Envoy seems to want to hide exactly how far behind it is. Cover-ups, and even the appearance of cover-ups, are bad business, especially in Catholic precincts.
As we say, everyone knows Envoy is tardy, big-time. Golly, the 5.6 Envoy carries a column by Pat Madrid, the Editor-in-Chief (and Funnyman-in-Chief?), titled Pats Top 10 Excuses Why Envoy Magazine Is Behind Schedule. Excuse #3: We promised you six smokin hot issues a year we never said which year. Good one, Pat!
But, Pat, put dates on your magazine. Cmon! Let your subscribers know exactly how far behind you are. Envoy is a one-of-a-kind magazine. Your subscribers will understand. They wont abandon you.
As we were saying, we were frolicking our way through the 5.6 Envoy. After enjoying Pats column, we came across an article by Scott Hahn, Ph.D., entitled What Does the Bible Teach Us About the Most Elusive Person of the Trinity? The article is about the Holy Spirit, its definitely not a humor piece, and its scandalously fallacious.
