From the Commonweal guidelines:

Commonweal welcomes manuscripts dealing with topical issues of the day on public affairs, religion, literature, and the arts that have not been published elsewhere, in print or online. Articles should be written for a general but well-educated audience. While religious articles are always topical, we are less interested in devotional and churchy pieces than in articles that examine the links between "worldly" concerns and religious beliefs. We look for articles that are timely, accurate, and well written.
