Where Do You Get Your Catholic News From?

Where do you get your Catholic news from?

Hopefully none of these "c"atholic sources (which are more interested in dissenting from Church teaching than defending it, more interested in changing the Church to fit the world than to change the world through the Church),

And hopefully not any of these sources, which think they are more Catholic than the Church taking their cue not from the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church but from the constant temptation to drift into self-righteous "heresy of the right"

Look for faithful Catholic news sources - some of which Voris has an unfortunate, seemingly personal, beef with - sources like EWTN, National Catholic Register, Catholic Answers, Word On Fire, Salt and Light, Catholic News Agency, L'Osservatore Romano, Rome Reports, and bloggers who stay faithful to the Magisterium of the Church expressed through the visible hierarchy of the Church (see my "blogs I read" on the side bar for some good ones).

Say what you will about Voris' The Vortex, which I'm not always a fan of (see HERE), and about his "tone," which many find off putting, he at least seeks to present Church teaching and refuses to attack the Holy Father. I think he is spot on in these two videos, although I would generally recommend the sources bolded above over The Vortex which can occasionally "push the envelope" a bit on respecting the episcopacy of the Church for my tastes.

Which sources do you turn to for news about the Church? 
Leave your favorites in the comments!


  1. Thanks Nathan - good article. It's important that we get our good news from the right sources! I'm still not too convinced about Voris (and to which your other article relates). God bless!

  3. I get my Catholic news from my parish, my diocese, the Vatican website, or the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

    If it isn't in one of those sources, I probably don't need to know it anyway.

    1. Hi Diana, Those are great sources, although I'm not sure if they really keep you up on "news." The Vatican website, as you no doubt know if you are a frequent user, isn't frequently updated, the CCC doesn't contain any news, and dioceses / parishes typically don't respond to news either. If you only like sources that are immediately tied to Vatican or a parish, you might find L'Ossevatore Romano (the Vatican Newspaper) or Radio Vatican (the Vatican Radio Station) to be better suited to news than the CCC. God bless.

  4. Thanks for the great resources!
    I always read Eye of the Tiber to hear about what's going on in the Catholic world. Great, reliable news website.
