Welcome to the Mountain Catholic resource page! Here’s a list of pages that we’ve found to be quite valuable (and not so valuable) over the years. Bookmark them for yourself and share them with a friend!
WordonFire.org – Bishop Robert Barron’s apostolate is one of the best and most well-known in the world. You’ll find excellent videos, articles, homilies, and weekly podcasts here.
Catholic.com – Catholic Answers is a great spot to go for all your questions about the faith. Also, check out their weekly podcast and daily radio shows as well.
ChurchPOP.com – A Christian (and better) version of BuzzFeed. An entertaining and enlightening site where you’ll see our work from time to time.
NewAdvent.org – A news aggregate site featuring the best in daily Catholic blogging and other news from around the Internet, along with a compilation of the Catholic Encylopedia and writings from numerous Church Fathers and Doctors of the Church.
Vatican.va – Find English translations of all sorts of Vatican documents here, dating well into the last two centuries (if not further).
Flocknote.com/projects – Sign up for daily emails to learn the Popes and the Catechism in a year, or to get a daily text or email for the Year of Mercy.
ShamelessPopery.com – Written by a lawyer-turned-seminarian, this site has lucid, well thought out posts about key issues facing the Church and the world
JimmyAkin.com – Jimmy, who works for Catholic Answers, provides great, practical content, most often when people are losing their minds over some Catholic misrepresentation by the media.
TaylorMarshall.com – An excellent resource written by one of the country’s leading theologians.
MatthewWarner.me – I may be biased (because I work for the author), but Matt Warner’s reflections on how to live a more radical, authentic, and holy life are always a must-read. As is his book Messy & Foolish, available from Dynamic Catholic.
Catholic Stuff You Should Know – The quintessential Catholic podcast. Frs. John, Nathan, Mike and Mike record from either Denver or Rome and talk about, you guessed it, all the Catholic stuff YOU should know. 20-50 minutes, posted once a week, usually on Thursdays.
Three Dogs North – Three friends (a priest and two seminarians) from the Archdiocese of Chicago get together each week and chat about whatever is going on in their lives as servants of Christ’s Church. 30-50 minutes, posted once a week on Wednesday/Thursday.
Fr. Mike Schmitz (UMD Catholic) – Weekly homilies from the chaplain at the University of Minnesota-Duluth and vocations director from the Diocese of Duluth. Always deep, always funny, always engaging. 15-35 minutes, posted once a week on Monday/Tuesday
Carroll Campus Ministry Podcasts – Homilies from Fr. Marc Lenneman, chaplain at Carroll College in Helena, Montana (my alma mater). Listeners always get a double dose (homilies from Wednesday AND Sunday Masses) and are treated to heavy references to holy people like Pope Benedict XVI, St. John Paul II, Aquinas, and St. Therese of Lisieux.

Steer Clear from:
Church Militant, PewSitter, and the Lepanto Institute – These sites (which we are purposely not linking to) are highly questionable in terms of a charitable and faithful representation of authentic Catholic life. Though their operators may well be good people, the content and tone provided by the sites are not worth your time.
