The Vatican’s awesome new reference web site

Check out this cool new web site from the Vatican’s Congregation for the Clergy: Biblia Clerus. It looks to be an awesome resource for all Catholics.

There’s a searchable Biblical text with commentary from the early Church fathers, the Sunday lectionary readings cross-referenced to the homilies of the Church fathers, the principal texts of the Magisterium of the Church and Popes, and current and earlier versions of the Eastern and Latin Codes of Canon Law with commentary. Oh, and did I mention that you can download it all to your computer (if you’re running Windows, drat, but I do have the software to run Windows on my Mac).

And then it links to the rest of their web site at with all kinds of other information, including their official mailing list for the Congregation’s documents.

Very cool!
