More pro-Father Feeney and pro-extra ecclesiam nulla salus blogs are showing up on the Internet. I have recently been made aware of three of them, and noticed that they have some excellent postings and links.

If you like what you read on this blog, you may care to look into the Saint Augustine Institute of Catholic Studies. SAI has been around a while — really, since 1942 — and it’s the brainchild of my teacher, Brother Francis, M.I.C.M. An almost scandalously simple program of Catholic studies, it can be your intellectual portal to a whole world of Catholic erudition.
To get started, consult these resources:
- The Saint Augustine Institute of Catholic Studies Syllabus
- Books for required reading available at Store.Catholicism.org
- Finally, you can find a lot of high quality audios of lectures and courses offered by the Saint Augustine Institute of Catholic studies.
