The Catholic Church is an ancient communion including the Roman, Antiochian, Byzantine, and Alexandrian traditions. It consists of over 30 unique liturgical rites, nearly as many autonomous churches, and over a billion faithful.
Catholicism is large and diverse, a faith bound together by a recognition of papal authority, but more profoundly by a focus on the sacraments and especially on the Eucharist as the “source and the summit” of Christian life. Through this sacramental orientation, Catholics find an affinity with the Orthodox of the East as well as many Western Christians, such as Anglicans and some Lutherans.
Catholicism is a complex tradition that includes Thomas Aquinas’s relentless logic and Thérèse of Lisieux’s “Little Way”; hermits, living lives of solitary prayer, and massive institutions such as hospitals and universities. It is made up of lawyers and mystics, bishops of imposing power and bare-footed Franciscans, humble chapels and magnificent cathedrals. Catholicism is full of intellectual and spiritual riches, but also full of controversy.
Explore this tradition with our extensive catalog of Catholic resources. From the Church Fathers, to the documents of Vatican II, to the contemporary theology of Hans Urs von Balthasar and Pope Benedict XVI, our growing library opens the door to this vast subject like never before.
