THE ORDER & THE CHURCH IN THE HOLY LAND

The Grand Magisterium of the Order

The Order's website has recently been redesigned and updated, and its content, which is available in multiple languages, will default to English for browsers located in the United States. More material should be added as the site is developed further.

The Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem

This site has been updated and greatly enhanced. The text mostly defaults to English, but much of the site can also be viewed in French, Italian, and Arabic, and a few parts still only in French. It includes a great deal of information about the work of the Church in the Holy Land and related matters, and is well worth a visit.

ABOUNA

This is an excellent Arab Christian website that chronicles the latest news, and events, and publishes commentaries about and for Christians in the wider Middle East. While the website of the Latin Patriarchate focuses primarily on the Christians in the territories for whom the Patriarch is responsible, ABOUNA, based in Amman, Jordan, looks at the Christians in the wider region as well.

Pope Francis in the Holy Land 2014

In preparation for this important event, the Assembly of Catholic Ordinaries of the Holy Land (the bishops of the different Catholic rites), created a 'Media Commission' to co-ordinate publicity for it. The Commission established a website which was intended to be the primary on-line source of information about the Pope's visit, and has links to a great deal of background information about the Holy Land and previous papal visits, as well as material from Pope Francis's 2014 pilgrimage. Also well worth a visit!

THE HOLY SEE

English Language Vatican Home Page

Pope Francis Index Page

Links to copies of the current Holy Father's exhortations, speeches, sermons, and other significant documents. Almost all of these are available here in English.

Papal Archives

Links to copies of previous pontiffs' exhortations, speeches, sermons, and other significant documents. These online archives are most complete for recent pontiffs, but some material is available from as far back as the pontificate of Pius XI. Much of the earlier material is only available in Latin and/or Italian, but English versions of most of the material from the pontificates of Benedict XVI, John Paul II, and John Paul I (and of some from that of Paul VI) are available here.
