Embassy World - "Directory & Search Engine Of Every Nation's Embassies & Consulates." Google Translate - "Translate text, web pages and documents." (Using Windows XP, you may also right click to find translator Link) Latin Patriarchate Schools - "Committed to protecting the national culture and heritage in the present and to preparing the next generation to lead our culture to a higher future." Justice For Immigrants - "The so-called 'illegals' are so not because they wish to defy the law; but, because the law does not provide them with any channels to regularize their status in our country – which needs their labor: they are not breaking the law, the law is breaking them." ----Most Reverend Thomas Wenski, Bishop of Orlando
The Holy See - Most visited Catholic website. Highly recommended. Wide variety of information - Holy Father's writings - Church teachings - Library - Vatican newspaper - Vatican Radio - Organizations - Holy Offices, and some contact information.
The Catholic Church in Africa - "When one thinks of Africa, one is immediately confronted by its vastness, diversities, complexities as well as its mysteriousness. The Church in Africa is wrapped up in these factors which need to be unpacked before anyone can understand the reality of the Church in this continent."
Catholic Charismatic Renewal - "A spiritual movement within the Catholic Church that emphasizes the availability of the power and the many gifts of the Holy Spirit in the life of every believer, and the need for a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ in order to live life to the fullest." I was "baptized in the Spirit" in 1987 and received the Gifts of Wisdom and Healing. For the good of the Church, I recommend you also participate in this spiritually beneficial movement
Cardinal Kung Foundation - "The Chinese Government recognizes only the Catholic Church affiliated with the CCPA or Official Church, which was created and founded by an atheist Chinese government.... It does not recognize the administrative, legislative, and judicial authority of the Pope. The Pope does not recognize the CCPA or Official Church as a part of the universal Roman Catholic Church..."
ENGLAND & WHALES
Catholic History: England & Wales 1550-1850 - "The Catholic Archives Society was founded in 1979 to promote the care and preservation of records of dioceses, religious foundations, institutions and societies of the Roman Catholic Church in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland."
Community of Sant'Egidio - "Began in Rome in 1968, in the period following the Second Vatican Council. Today it is a movement of lay people and has more than 40,000 members, dedicated to evangelisation and charity, in Rome, Italy and in more than 60 countries throughout the world."
PAPUA NEW GUINEA & SOLOMON ISLANDS
Pastoral Letter to Catholic Men - This is a spiritually beautiful letter that should be read by all Catholic men and their families - "May, 2002. A Pastoral Letter to the Catholic Men from the Catholic Bishops of Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands."
UCEF Ukrainian Catholic Education Foundation - "Rebuilding the Church in Ukraine. Established in 1997, the Ukrainian Catholic Education Foundation informs Americans about the academic and financial needs of the Ukrainian Catholic Church and its educational institutions in Ukraine."
The True Meaning of Christmas - This website tells the story of Christmas in a very simple manner that is fit for young children. However, I found it to be a very peaceful presentation that offers information that many adults will also find interesting. Although it shows British traditions, as you are aware, many of them have spread to the USA and other countries. (More information is provided at the bottom of their Home page). Westminster Cathedral - News & Events, Mass & Services, Music, Histor, Art, Shopping. "Itself a supreme achievement ofart, the Cathedral is home to many distinguished works of artistic merit. True to the vision of its founder, Cardinal Vaughan... This great house of God reflects the highest aspirations of humanity, and raises the mind toward the glories of heaven."
