One of the things that I share with my pastor is the idea that people must know about everything in the world as much as they can. In order to discern what is right and what is not right, we need to examine what we are bombarded with everyday in light of the Moral Law. There are many good events but there are also evil ones. A good website that discusses educational and moral issues is the Canadian-based Catholic Education Resource Center at http://www.catholiceducation.org - Other ones are: Zenit at http://www.zenit.org and Imitatio at http://www.imitatio.org/ which delves into anthropology of Mimetic Theory, and a fourth one is America Magazine run by the Jesuit Fathers in the U.S. at http://www.americamagazine.org A fifth one that is indispensable to researchers in Catholic tradition is http://www.newadvent.org which features an online Bible, The Catholic Encyclopedia (dated 1910 but rich in content), and readings from the Fathers of the Church in addition to articles by contemporary authors. I must add the renowned First Things at http://www.firstthings.com/ Not all articles are free but you can read the free ones to learn how contemporary Catholic thinkers think. On my blog Today's Questions at http://www.todayquestions.blogspot.ca you will find many more websites in contemporary theology and science. None of these are infallible but we always grow in learning by opening up to everything that can conceive the good in our minds and hearts.
