Something highly unusual and highly important happened today.
An opinion piece, the same opinion piece, was published simultaneously in three media outlets, the UK’s best Catholic weekly The Catholic Herald, the National Catholic Register, and ZENIT.

I don’t remember anything like this.
The fact of simultaneous release, in “competing” outlets, suggests to me some seriously well-played organization. In other words: somebody important wants what Prof. Rist has to say to be read and absorbed and circulated.
