Everything you always wanted to
know about Catholicism but didn't
know where to find it!
The site we're featuring
today is a veritable virtual
library of Catholic
information. Operated by the
Knight Organization, a
Lakewood, Colorado-based non profit organization tied to Supernet
a high tech company that specializes in web works. With these
resources the Knight Organization is able to dedicate a sub-site from
knight.org to using the web to spreading the Roman Catholic faith. It
can be found at http://www.knight.org/advent/ it is probably the
simplest of any site on the net. Though it is devoid of all graphics and
photos except for the New Advent Catholic Supersite Logo on many
pages. Whatever you want to look up, this site most probably has it.
All categories are expertly alphabetized and getting to them is
lightning quick. We dare you to find a site that downloads faster!
Material is concise but complete and should be a favorite for all
Catholic scholars and those interested in their faith. They have a
limited links section, but that is not a deterrent. Strong on apologetics
they provide links to Catholic Answers and Peter's Net - two
exceptional sources along with several others. What this site lacks in
graphic creativity, it makes up for in practicality, quantity, quality,
immediacy and accuracy. They feature the entire work of the Summa
Theologica along with the Catholic Encyclopedia and an impressive
assortment of ancient Christian writings by monks, saints and Church
Fathers. In a word it is a Cornucopia Collection of Catholic Treasure.
Therefore, on a scale of ten Hail Mary's we're giving New Advent
Catholic Supersite a full decade: Ten Hail Mary's.
