Homiletic and Pastoral Review is a religious journal, the first Catholic Clergy magazine to appear in the United States and has been the leading journal of its kind for over a century. The editor emeritus is the Rev. Kenneth Baker, S.J.; current editor is the Rev. David Vincent Meconi, S.J., a professor of patristic theology at St. Louis University. Founded over one hundred years ago, Homiletic and Pastoral Review is one of the most well-respected pastoral journals in the world. The journal is carried by 191 university libraries. It features contributors such as James V. Schall, S.J., Alice von Hildebrand, Paul Vitz, Kenneth Whitehead, Donald DeMarco, Regis Scanlon, and John F. Harvey. In 1900 Joseph F. Wagner decided to start a magazine for the Catholic clergy in the U.S.A. He called it The Homiletic Monthly and Catechist, the name it carried until it was changed to the present name in 1919. The format was always simple: each issue included a sample sermon for each Sunday and Feast Day along with some aids for teaching catechism to children. It stayed that way until 1919.
