Website Review: Boston Catholic Journal

A review based on:


The Boston Catholic Journal is an online collection of "reflections on life lived authentically in Christ." Though no information is provided regarding the authorship of the articles offered here, or the sponsorship of the site, the content provided speaks volumes on the quality of both. The articles cover a wide variety of topics and are all well-written and thought-provoking. In addition to the articles on general topics, there are also a number of interesting special features, such as Letters from Nuns, Poetry, or Thoughts in Passing. All of these make this site worth an extended visit.

The search engine is especially useful since the resources are difficult to find.
