Website Review: Courage

A review based on:


Courage is an international community of men and women committed to following the magisterial teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Courage's mission is to provide spiritual support for men and women striving to live chaste lives in accordance with the Catholic Church's pastoral teaching on homosexuality. The site not only provides extensive information on the organization and its work and events, but also offers a number of online resources. These include a good section on related Church teachings, several email discussion forums, and a section for youth. This is a good site from a great organization doing excellent work.
