Don’t Let Them Cancel The Remnant

No, the sky is not falling. . . at least not yet.

For those who weren't aware, The Remnant is the world's oldest Traditional Catholic newspaper. It was founded by my father back in 1967, in response to Vatican II and the modernism he saw creeping into the Church even before the Council detonated. I took over the business in 1995 and have been its Editor ever since. 


My problem is simple: How do we keep a newsprint newspaper viable when the entire industry itself is hellbent on euthanizing the newsprint model? For years, I’ve been convinced that if the “Online Option” is a trap, then “free online posting” is the bait.

Yes, I get it. Keeping a physical newspaper in operation doesn’t’ make any business sense, not when all you have to do to “make good money” is go digital. But I think readers of The Remnant are too savvy not to see why we can’t do that. You think online regulation and cancelation is bad now, wait a year or two.

So, I have no intention of sacrificing my father’s legacy on the altar of online convenience. With God’s help, long after our website and Remnant TV have been canceled in the name of keeping everyone safely insulated from the truth, The Remnant NEWSPAPER will still be here.

So, eat your heart out, Bill Gates! I will mail The Remnant out by hand every two weeks before I turn it over to the Gods of Cyberspace.

And, thankfully, The Remnant newspaper is actually faring quite well, thanks to you – the most loyal readership in the world. But I do have to do one thing, and I hate doing it. For the first time in ten years, I have to raise our rates. (Yes, you read that right: with all the postage hikes, paper cost increases, and post-Covid production regulation, this will be the first time in ten years that we’ve had to raise the cost of a Remnant subscription.)

As of September 30, 2023, therefore, the annual cost of our Standard U.S. subscription is going from $40 to $45; First Class U.S. from $55 to $60; Standard Canadian from $50 to $60; First Class Canadian from $60 to $70; and International/Foreign from $60 to $75. The cost of The Remnant E-edition will remain the same ($25 per year). If you wish to renew or subscribe at the old rates, you have until September 30th to do so here or by calling our office at (651) 433-5425.

Thanks very much for your kind understanding. I’m happy to say that thanks to you and to God, The Remnant is at the forefront of the traditional Catholic counterrevolution. Things are very bad in Rome, yes, but there is a worldwide awakening as well.

If you are not a newspaper subscriber, but would like to support what we offer for free here online by way of articles, as well as videos from RemnantTV, please consider a donation here.

The awakening I mentioned is real, and the war is on. And I promise to do everything in power to fight with you for God, Faith and Family.
