Links

The following links are not only religious. They include environmental and justice concerns. These sites are recommended for those seeking to understand our Catholic Faith from a broader perspective. Some of the specifically “Catholic” links will challenge presuppositions, while others will reinforce long held beliefs. Some will provide a practical connection to what we believe and how we live. Still others will enable us to see the Catholic Faith in action. And, of course, there are the more general sites that address major issues of environment and justice. There should be something here for nearly every thinking person--Catholic and non-Catholic, Christian and non-Christian, believer and non-believer.

If you would like to suggest any additional links for consideration, please email me: Suggested Link(s)

In a society drunk with violence and war, the following website should prove sobering. It examines the cost of war not only in financial terms (which are truly staggering), but also in light of the human and social needs that are sacrificed in pursuit of political ambition: The Cost of War
