FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND – “How interesting that Catholics were asked not what was most important but what was most ‘meaningful.’ Are these the same thing? . . . If meaningfulness has become the new yardstick by which we measure the sacraments, how can we then deny this sacrament – or any other – to someone when it means so much to them?” Dr. Phillippa Martyr

Never fear, Catholic Carnival 217 is here!

Now, I am not necessarily recommending this but it was in a reputable Catholic magazine and cursory review of the site looks promising. says of itself, "We are determined to confront the merciless and vulgar sexual revolution that our tragically ignorant Catholic youth are engulfed in. In this spirit, the non-profit corporation Sex Education for Advanced Beginners Inc., the publishers of this book, will provide as many boxes of the book needed, essentially at cost (the schools, parishes or dioceses are responsible for printing and shipping costs), to any Catholic high school or diocese that will give a copy to the parents of every student in the 11th and 12th grade to take home and discuss with his or her parents." PARENTAL DISCRETION IS ADVISED. Check out their site for more information.

Now, in the definite NOT recommended category is this site that is too odd not to share. J sent this in with the note, "Can you believe this?" They promise that if you cannot say your prayers they have a computer program that will say them for you! You have choices of religions and prayers from which to choose. Hmmm, growing closer to God by having your computer talk to Him for you . . . Does anyone see a flaw here? "Information Age Prayer is a subscription service utilizing a computer with text-to-speech capability to incant your prayers each day. It gives you the satisfaction of knowing that your prayers will always be said even if you wake up late, or forget."

Nothing religious here - just an interesting video sent in by F. Animator vs. Animated.

Catholic TV is sprucing up their site. Check it out here.
P. sent in: "Today on EWTN ("Rome Reports") I saw a brief segment which introduced a new website geared toward youth: "Early Christians" was developed by several young people who see a connection between the early Christian era (the need to resist and overcome a pagan culture) and the current era (the need to resist and overcome "neo-paganism"). They hope that the example of the early Christians can help people in the 21st century. A group of professors at the University of Narvarre, Spain, act as theological advisers to the web team. (The site also has a Spanish version.) Topics include biographies of early Christians, a chronology of the first centuries of Christianity, the trials of the martyrs, and the Pope's catechises on the apostles and early Christians. The team also takes questions submitted by those interested in learning more about the faith."
