For the Modern Seeker of Truth or Just an Inquisitive or Skeptical Catholic or Non-Catholic Who Has a lot of Questions and Wants to Learn More about the Catholic Faith
Great Catholic Websites to Know and Have at Your Disposal
These excellent websites are authentic, reliable sources of information about the Catholic Church and Her teachings, doctrines, practices, history, identity, etc. All of these websites are faithful to the Church and Her Magisterium (official teaching authority). For any questions, doubts, or concerns you may have about the Church or some aspect of Her teachings, practices, history, etc., please consult these websites and the resources they provide with an open mind and heart as they can likely (hopefully) answer many, if not all of your questions. There are probably many other Catholic websites that may be helpful in terms of catechesis and apologetics and so this list is non-exhaustive:
