But Crux isn’t dead. Within a couple of days, Crux’s associate editor, John L. Allen, Jr., a longtime reporter on Catholicism and the Vatican, announced that he’d secured a deal with Catholic service organization Knights of Columbus to keep the site running. Crux will remain an independent editorial organization, with the Knights providing financial backing. Inés San Martin, Crux’s Vatican correspondent based in Rome, is going with Allen to launch the new Crux.
The Boston Globe has been “as classy about how they’ve handled this as humanly possible,” Allen told me, and the Globe’s cooperation is helping to ensure that Crux makes a smooth transition.
