  • Prayer, Scripture, Saints

Occasionally we will link to other resources outside of this website that provide more information about a topic than we can provide here. Overall, for more in-depth reading on what Catholics believe, please consult these authoritative sources as well:

  1. The Catechism of the Catholic Church
  2. New American Bible
  3. Documents of the Second Vatican Council
