Website Review: Life Issues

A review based on:


This is an outstanding web site set up by Fr. Jerry Novotny, OMI, a missionary in Japan. The purpose of the site is to promote a “Culture of Life” in which human freedom will find its authentic meaning by joining forces with truth, life and love. Among its many excellent resources, the site features a number of libraries of resources on life issues, each of which includes documents, commentary, homilies, papers, and links.

Unfortunately the site is blemished by the presence of three hundred articles written by Fr. Ronald Rolheiser.
