These are websites and blogs that illustrate some of the ways that Catholic thinkers reflect on what’s going on in the world.
Some are “official,” that is, under the auspices of official Church bodies (like the Catechism), while others are sponsored by religious orders in the Church (like Busted Halo or America), while still others are groups of Catholics joining together to look at the way their faith informs their thinking (like Patheos and Commonweal).
