Other Recommended Web Sites
Serious Catholics should be made aware of the following interesting
World Wide Web sites. Not all of these are of a Traditional Catholic
persuasion, but all could be a source of information useful to the
Traditional Catholic cause:
A site operated by Mikael Rosen, editor of Adoremus in aeternum,
which is said to be the only Catholic periodical in Sweden. An article on
the site, The Church in Sweden presents a very depressing picture
of the state of the Catholic Church there.
This site, operated by John Lane who lives near Perth, Australia, is
dedicated to St. Thomas Aquinas and the Blessed Virgin Mary, Vanquisher of
all Heresies. It contains sections on devotions, heresies, Vatican II,
the "New Mass", Sede Vacante, SEDE List, recommended links and
other topics. It is also a repository for writings of Patrick Henry
Catholic Books Online
This is one well-done site, excellently demonstrating the melding of
traditional ideas with the latest in technology. You get a fairly simple
but effective opening page with all sorts of options. It has links with
the more significant Traditional Catholic home pages (including this
humble one); but its real strength is showing how books are likely to be
effectively and inexpensively marketed in the coming years. You get this
display of books as though arranged on a library shelf, with the binding
of each book indicating a category of interest. If you click on the
binding, you get a page describing each book under that category, with a
little "thumbnail" graphic depicting the cover of each book. You just
click on an oval icon under the icon of each book to add it to your
"shopping basket". After you browse the site, you just "check out" and
can give them a credit card number under a special security system. A few
minutes later, you get an email confirmation of your order (without credit
card info). This site is the first one I have ever used to order
something over the Internet and I think it's really cool. (Of course, it
helps that all of the books offered are first-class, solidly Catholic
offerings.) An A+ goes to Catholic Books Online and "The Porticus Group" for the design of
this site, which leaves nothing to be desired.
Catholic Corner specializes in promoting devotion to the Infant of Prague
and provides many articles intended to promote personal spirituality.
Official English Website of the Abbé de Nantes' Catholic
Counter-Reformation in the XXth Century. Recent issues of the Publication
are available on-line, as well as subscription information on
subscribing and on obtaining other articles. While the Abbé is not
Sedevacantist, his criticisms of Paul VI and John Paul II are both
scathing and classic. A highly recommended site!
CRI was founded in 1996 to provide Roman Catholics with a
traditional viewpoint on various topics under discussion in society
and in the Church today. This site is operated by Fr. Kevin Vaillancort,
editor of The Catholic Voice and moderator of SEDE List. The site
is new, but a number of articles and other information is presented, and
considerably more is expected in the near future. Information on
obtaining printed copies of many of Patrick Henry Omlor's writings (and at
very modest prices) is available on this site.
Congregation of Mary Immaculate
This is the primary Web site for the CMRI, which is probably the second
largest traditional Catholic religious organization after the SSPX. The
site is subdivided into three areas: The first deals with the
spirituality and apostolic work of the CMRI, a directory of CMRI churches
and schools, information on vocations to the religious life, the Latin
Mass, etc. The second describes the Mary Immaculate Queen Center, which
promotes the Fatima message and the true Catholic Faith through the
printing apostolate. It includes an on-line catalog of books and
religious articles. The third describes the CMRI Quarterly Catholic
Magazine, The Reign of Mary which features articles on traditional
Church doctrine, Church history, the Sacraments, family life, Marian
spirituality and more.
Eternal Word Television Network
Formerly, the Catholic Resource Network, which was bought out by Mother
Angelica. It offers a large quantity of papal and other Church documents
and discussion forums from a conservative (Conciliar) Catholic
(Our Lady of Fatima on-line.) This is the WWW site for Fr. Nicholas
Gruner of THE FATIMA CRUSADER fame. I agree with Fr. Gruner entirely on
matters relating to the proper modern interpretation to be given to the
Fatima apparitions (i.e., that John Paul II and his bishops have NOT
properly consecrated Russia to the Blessed Mother in the way she
requested). This site will fill you in on everything you essentially need
to know about Fatima and contains much other useful information about
other Catholic resources on the Internet.
Garabandal Home Page
Without a doubt, the prophecies of Garabandal are the most interesting of
this century - IF they are really true! They complement those of Fatima
quite nicely (the theory being that they were the response of heaven to
John XXIII's not revealing the "Third Fatima Secret" in 1960). The Web
site listed above is approved by the Workers of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel
(P.O. Box 606, Lindenhurst, NY 11757-0606), the largest Garabandal
promotion entity in the world, as the official Garabandal Web site (see
July/September 1996 issue of GARABANDAL magazine, page 12). The same site
also has information on a number of OTHER (MOSTLY MARIAN)
APPARITIONS. I highly recommend GARABANDAL magazine, available from
the Workers of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel at the address indicated above for
$13/year (four quarterly issues).
This apparently secular, liberal arts college in Indiana, offers a
considerable amount of historical reference material. I recommend their
more general, late Middle Ages Catholic Page and
even moreso their page on the Catechism of the
Council of Trent.
Prague Web Site
Also known as "Catholicism.cz" (for Czech Republic), this site specializes
in devotions to the Infant of Prague. A well-done job by Peter Kristof
for his mother.
Inky's Unofficial Catholic
A somewhat unlikely name for a well-done Web site which deserves to be
considered the unofficial home page for the Catholic Traditionalist
Movement founded by the Rev. Gommar A. DePauw in 1964. Fr. DePauw was
among the first (if not the first) American priest to perceive what
Vatican II was really about. Excerpts from some of Fr. DePauw's writings
are presented and complete copies may be obtained through the site
operator. You will have to discover for yourself why it is called
ORAMUS-Traditional Oblates of
A traditional Catholic Website ("oramus" means "we pray" and is
intentionally different from "oremus" for "let us pray") dedicated to
living life according to the precepts applicable to the Oblates of St.
Benedict. There are some 13 sub-pages which provide information about St.
Benedict, the St. Benedict Medal (the value of which is well-related in
the book, Fr. Paul of Moll), indulgences, the value of prayer and
work, and other relevant topics.
Our Lady of the Rosary
Our Lady of the Rosary School's mission is to provide Catholic
home-schooler's with the best in TOTALLY CATHOLIC educational
materials. For those parents who feel they need some help in home-schooling
their children, this is the place to go. The Web site contains sections
on Church Documents Relating to Home-Schooling, Articles on
Home-Schooling, an on-line Course Book, Samples of Students' Work,
Catholic Vacation Bible School and the OLRS On-Line Newsletter.
This site is dedicated to Padre Pio, a stigmatic Capuchin priest who died
in September of 1968. He had the Stigmata and is surely one of the
greatest saints of our time. Highly recommended is the publication, THE
VOICE OF PADRE PIO, issued monthly from San Giovanni Rotundo, Italy, at a
cost of $16/year. Direction subscription requests to: National Centre
for Padre Pio, Inc., 2213 Old Route 100, Barto, PA 19405 (Voice:
610-845-3000, Fax: 610-845-2666).
Official Web page for The Remnant - one of the oldest
American traditional Catholic publications. Its history, purpose and
principal columnists are described. Subscription information also is
included, as well as a bookstore catalog, information on advertising,
recent news and a feature article of the month.
Web page for the St. Francis Newsletter (Paradise, CA), edited by
Robert Hess. Generally Sedevacantist in perspective with other articles
on current news and controversy.
Seat of Wisdom
Seat of Wisdom Catholic Books indicates that it has thousands of old
Catholic books in its inventory, including many works of the Fathers and
the Doctors of the Church. Inquiries may be emailed to
firstname.lastname@example.org or telephoned to (603) 239-6932, or faxed to
(603) 239-7205. Both email and land mail mailing lists are available for
keeping updated on new book availability.
Society of St. Pius V
Technically excellent home page for the SSPV, which provides details of
their Mass locations, Bp. Kelly's Consecration and miscellaneous other
