Catholic Church

The Holy See The Official Web site of the Vatican
Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh
The Catholic Liturgical Library A beautiful site with everything you ever wanted to know about the Latin rite liturgy (the way it is supposed to be done, not the way you may see it done by Father PC)

Cults and Sects

Heresies, the Occult, and the New Age Movement This is from Dave Armstrong who has the Biblical Evidence for Catholicism site.
Transporter Information Service A site created by Steve Clifford, a convert from The Church of Jesus Christ, Latter Day Saints - or Mormons. I met him recently at the Defending the Faith conference at Franciscan University of Steubenville. I just wish I had more time to spend with him. Check out his debates with Mormons.
Defending the Bride John Hellmann created this very good apologetics site. I have used some of his articles for responses and explanations - sometimes, it was the only place I could find the information I needed.
Jehovah's Witneses This will take you to a place on my web site that lists some links to web sites and articles related to the Jehovah's Witnesses.

The Deception of Freemasonry

Bishop Law's Letter on Freemasonry As Incompatible with Catholic Faith The title says it all! A must read for any Catholic thinking that it's OK to become a Mason.
Declaration on Masonic Organizations This puts to rest the lie that the Catholic Church allows Masonic membership.
The Masonic Religion Chapter 5 of "Christianity and American Freemasonry" by William J. Whalen published by Bruce Publishing Company, 1958.
The Attack on the Church by Freemasonry An article I wrote in response to some people online who claimed that there was nothing anti-Christian or anti-Catholic about Freemasonry. All of the sources come from respected Masonic historians and authors.

Reference Materials

Early Church Fathers If you want to find any Church Father that has been turned into electronic form, he'll be here! Fantastic for research.
Catechism of the Catholic Church Just what it says. The Catechism online. What a terrific source. If you want to know what the Church teaches, go here first.
Jewish Quotes Interesting quotes from famous Jewish people about Catholicism.
Catholic Culture (formerly Peter's Net) A Catholic search and documentary service of Trinity Communications. A fantastic site to find information for anything Catholic. They will also rate your site (don't be surprised if they slam you for having links to questionable sites - they will do it).
The Holocaust and the Catholic Church Some very important articles for anyone doing research on the Church's efforts during the war.

Religious Icons

Russian Icons I found this through one of my searches. Most of these are pretty old icons - from about the 12th through the 18th centuries. Some beautiful images of Jesus, the Trinity and the Blessed Mother.
Ukrainian Icons These I found in the Christus Rex web site - which I highly recommend. This takes some time to load, but it is well worth the wait. The title of this page is "EXHIBITION : Ukrainian Icon In The 11th-16th C.C."
The Book of Kells This sort of fits in with icons. The Book of Kells is an illuminated or decorated manuscript of the four Gospels. Its calligraphy and penmanship have earned it a reputation as the most beautiful book in the world.
It was begun at the island monastery of Iona; completed at Kells, Ireland following the Viking invasion of 805. The manuscript was stolen in 1007. Later recovered, it remained at Kells until the 17th century when Henry Jones, Cromwell's chief of intelligence gave it to Trinity College, Dublin, where it may still be seen.
The text is St. Jerome's Vulgate with the Old Latin readings and features. Over the years many monks must have been employed copying the text in calligraphic Irish hand and in a compressed script for the passages to the Gospels.
OnLine Icons I just found this site while I was looking for a good image to put as the background of this page.

On the Lighter Side of Things

Harry Potter

Harry Potter's Magic by Alan Jacobs in the January 2000 issue of First Things. This article is one of those rare, erudite explications on the Magic in the Potter series.
Fantasy and the Occult in Children's Literature by Susan Reibel Moore. This article appeared in the June 2001 Homiletic and Pastoral Review magazine. She is a literary critic, so she knows a little about writing, unlike some of the anti-Harry crowd.
Harry Potter and the Paganization of Children's Culture by Michael O'Brien. Mr. O'Brien is the author of the book "Landscape with Dragons: The Battle for Your Child’s Mind", a critique of fantasy literature and how this kind of literature damages children's perception of God.
Rome's Chief Exorcist Warns Parents Against Harry Potter This was an article from 1/3/02 Catholic World News.
Harry Potter and the Inklings: The Christian Meaning of The Chamber of Secrets by John Granger. A incredibly thought-provoking look into the Potter series. If you want to remain staunchly anti-Harry, you might not want to read this.
