This week we feature Fish Eaters, an excellent introduction to traditional Catholicism.
This site is run by a women who describes it as "pan-traditionalist and is not affiliated with any priestly society (to avoid the 'politics' of the 'F.S.S.P. vs. S.S.P.X. vs. whatever' type debates, just stay away from certain sections of the discussion forum, where all traditionalists are welcome). " Though she invites all (traddies) she upholds the validity of Benedict XVI and Vatican II, unlike last week's site.
We love this site for it easy reference to just about all the basic things you need to know. The main page features three main sections:
"Defense of Catholicism": apologetics 101. We haven't read every single page, but the ones we have read are most excellent guides to defending the faith. They outline the issues plainly and provide tons of Biblical citations to support eveything.
"Being Catholic": Our favorite section - the POD traditions, devotions and practices which we love are the focus of this page. The webmistress offers explanations and how-tos for a myriad of things from when and how to genuflect to basic prayers and so much more. And to satisfy our snarky sense of humor, there is also a wonderful page of Catholic Jokes under "Fun Stuff."
"For Catholics": This section focuses primarily on the differences between the Novus Ordo and Tridentine liturgies and the typical behavior and attitudes associated with each. The webmistress links to numerous offsite articles and documents examining the issues.
Overall we find this site to be tremendous and recommend it to all!
