About the Author

Brother John Raymond
is a member of the /Monks of Adoration, a monastery in the Boston area. A gifted writer and public speaker, his work appears in national Catholic publications. He's also often featured on local and national television and, of course, on the Internet.


Until Brother John Raymond compiled this book, there was very little in the way of keeping track of Web sites for and about Roman Catholics and Catholicism. Raymond went beyond mere compilation, tracking down resources and investigating, screening, and sorting them. The thousands of sites that made it into Catholics on the Internet--everything from the Vatican's Web site to a variety of Catholic chat areas--are in accordance with the actual teachings of the Church.

Brother Raymond writes in a friendly and inviting voice. Assuming that the reader doesn't have a lot of experience on the Net, he begins with a short, comforting description and then shows newcomers how to get online and into some of the most user-friendly Catholic gathering spots.

While most of the book deals with Catholic resources on the World Wide Web, Brother Raymond doesn't overlook the rich content elsewhere. For example, chapter 2 is devoted to the wide variety of Catholic mailing lists available and chapter 4, for those on a tight budget, begins with a section entitled "How to Do Everything by E-Mail." Other types of resources listed throughout the book include Web sites of dioceses, parishes, and churches around the world; Catholic organizations; sites devoted to doctrine, history, and biblical research; Catholic schools, colleges, ministries, and communities; and Catholic culture, media, history, and writings. Brother Raymond includes information sources for children as well as adults. This is a resource that any Catholic, or anyone interested in Catholicism, will find valuable.
