(mostly) Catholic Links:
The Vatican's home page
Plenty of official documents and other resources here, including the New American Bible and the Catechism
Excellent Rosary page
Another excellent page, also featuring the Divine Mercy prayer. (Our world is in desperate need of much prayer. This, I think, is a great start.
Here's a well presented Rosary and Divine Mercy page, with links.

This one looks more like a news web site.
I was reading here about a nun who is defending Pius XII in her books.
I've recently come across the controversy surrounding Pius XII, who is at
the center of one of the latest attacks on the Church. Kinda sad given
that the guy is credited with saving something like 860,000 Jewish lives
during World War II. Let's just hope that some faithful Catholics get
together to make a movie about this modern hero.
Home of Envoy magazine, a Catholic magazine
Let the name speak for itself. Comes complete with a Bible cheat sheet:
We are loyal and obedient to the Holy Father, Pope John Paul II and the
Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church. To the best of our knowledge,
we do not distribute or promote anything that is contrary to the
teachings of the Catholic Church. However, if you find something that
appears contrary please write or e-mail us.
Hmmm, that 's kinda where I stand too!

converts to our side of the divide. This should be a good place to go
Home page of Peter Kreeft, Professor of Philosophy and convert to
Catholicism,author of more than 40 books (many of which I intend to

the Faith to his students and to others.
Catholic Online Saints Index
If you spend much time on the Web looking for information, you know how
difficult and frustrating it can sometimes be to find exactly what
you're looking for. What I enjoy most about the Catholic Pages site is
that I can find just about everything in Catholic materials through
Early Church Fathers
Summa Theologica of Thomas Aquinas
Contains many works in electronic format (Catholic and Protestant.) You
can download Summa Theologica, Imitation of Christ, Pascal's Pensees,
Catholic? Coptic? I'm not quite sure where these guys are based, but
they are big on the apparitions of Mary. Download the Early Church
Fathers in WinHelp format here. They also have some Bible
A Librarian's Guide to Catholic Resources on the Internet
Highly recommended by PetersNet, contains hundreds of links to Catholic
websites. The author and webmaster of this site is Karen Chohrach, a
convert to Catholicism who was raised as a Southern Baptist. Karen
strongly believes that the Catholic Church in the United States is now,
more than ever, in need of reform. By reform Karen means a return to
fidelity and orthodoxy. (see article at site)
The American Chesterton society:
Discover one of the greatest thinkers of the 20th century, who also
played an important role in one of the most important conversions of the
20th century, CS Lewis.
I found this a useful place to go for getting some of Chesterton's works.
Another really good place to find Chesterton's books is here:
Go here to read Cardinal Newman's books online:
Another Catholic directory
The sure guide for authentic Catholic teaching is from the Magisterium
of the Church-that is, the bishops in union with the Pope. "The
faithful...are obliged to submit to their bishops' decision, made in the
name of the Church, in matters of faith and morals, and to adhere to it
with a ready and respectful allegiance of mind. This loyal submission of
the will and intellect must be given, in a special way, to the authentic
teaching authority of the Roman Pontiff" (Vatican II Documents,
"Dogmatic Constitution on the Church," paragraph 25)."
Dave Armstrong's page: (yet another of my heroes)
HEAPS of GOLD here. Huge range of resources, articles, links. This is probably the first place I go for material and links.

Nice page I stumbled across from another Paradise.net.nz user
Some links that were sent to me:

Sharen's Little Catholic Home
Site run by a Jewish convert to Catholicism.
"Amplifies the message that we are Jews, that Catholicism is the full flowering of Judaism. Don't take my word for it, take the words of Cardinal Ratzinger, Mel Gibson, and WW2 martyr Maximillian Kolbe, amongst other. "
