The God Who Speaks - The Bible and Catholics
All Scripture is inspired by God
"If you’re Catholic and curious about the Bible, this is the place for you. Here you’ll find great resources; events and ideas to help you deepen your faith and love of the Scriptures.
"‘Everyone should carry a small Bible or pocket edition of the Gospels and should find at least a few minutes every day to read the word of God.’ (Pope Francis, 2014)
"We’re looking forward to gathering together again this year for more Scripture Tours around England and Wales. Please email Fleur Dorrell if you’d like to co-create some Scripture-filled events across your diocese. We’d love to help you make the most of your ideas and celebrate your communities through Scripture, art, music, worship, food and fun."

Catholic Online - "comprehensive, educational and timely information about Catholicism"
"Only Catholic Online, located at www.catholic.org, gives the largest and broadest population of Catholics worldwide easy access to comprehensive, educational and timely information about Catholicism, and provides a range of easy methods to integrate their faith into their daily lives. The mission of Catholic Online (COL) is to accurately represent the Catholic religion: its "past" and present. Today, Catholic Online provides over five million pages of content including the largest online historical and biblical database about the Catholic Church including comprehensive information about over 7,000 Catholic saints and comprehensive online scriptures from all books of the Old and New Testament.
"Catholic Online reaches a highly targeted audience of over to 100 thousand Catholic users per day and up to 1 million page impressions per day. Visitors come from over 120 countries around the world. Over 100,000 users take advantage of free email accounts and access COL every day!
"Catholic Online has consistently provided the world wide Catholic Community with dependable and reliable content and Internet services for over 10 years. We have the largest Catholic Online presence on the Internet. In order to continue to build OUR Catholic Online Community your active support is needed.
"Recent announcements from the Vatican on the use of the Internet as a strategic communications tool for the church will create an increase in support for sites targeting the Catholic audience."
We set up on a voluntary basis in May 2000 in response to Tertio Millennio Adveniente, which called for lay people to play a more active role in the work of the Church. As journalists, we felt this project was one way we could make a contribution.
Our aim is to provide speedy and accurate news coverage of all subjects of interest to Catholics and the wider Christian community. There is also a Saint of the Day, Sunday Reflection, Listings Section, Classified Ads, Prayer Requests and Links pages.
We are keeping the design as simple as possible so that the site can be accessed by people using older computers - many of our readers live in the developing world and don't have the latest technology.

The Catholic Universe. -- The News Site You'll Have Faith in
Founded in 1860, the Catholic Universe is one of the UK’s most well-known and respected newspaper brands with an extremely solid reputation that reaches far beyond its core readership.

The Tablet - "a Catholic weekly journal"
"...is a Catholic weekly journal that has been published continually since 1840. It reports on religion current affairs, politics, social issues, literature and the arts with a special emphasis on Roman Catholicism while remaining ecumenical.

Vatican News - The news portal of the Holy See
Together with Vatican Radio, L’Osservatore Romano and Vatican Media, it seeks to respond “always better to the demands of the Church’s mission” in contemporary culture. ...
Surpassing the concept of being a simple digital platform, Vatican News seeks to respond and, in a certain sense, to anticipate the continual changes taking place in communication, with the objective of “communicating the Gospel of mercy to all people” in various cultures. It communicates and interacts through audio, video, text and images on a multi-lingual, multi-culture, multi-channel, multi-media and multi-device plain.
Four thematic areas provide information regarding the activity of the Pope, the Holy See, the local Churches, as well as giving space to world news. ... Vatican News seeks not only to inform, but to bring the hope of faith into all the world and offer a key to interpret facts through the light of the Gospel. Its guiding criteria is “apostolic, missionary, with special attention to situations of hardship, poverty, difficulty” (Discourse of Pope Francis to the Plenary Assembly of the SPC, 4 May 2017).
