Vatican's clergy congregation unveils Web site with important texts

By Catholic News Service

The Vatican's Congregation for the Clergy unveiled a Web site offering the Bible in nine languages, the Code of Canon Law and commentary on Sunday liturgy.

The congregation's new site, www.bibliaclerus.org, is part of its www.clerus.org Web site which also has increased the number of resources available in its electronic library, said a Dec. 8 letter by the congregation's prefect, Cardinal Claudio Hummes.

While the Web sites are open to everyone, they are geared toward serving the world's priests, deacons and catechists, the letter said.

The resources on the new Web site already had been available from the congregation on a CD and had been distributed to 140,000 clergy around the world.

People accessing the new site will be able to read Scripture along with its interpretation in light of tradition, the teachings of the church and papal commentaries.

Biblical texts are available in Hebrew, Greek, Latin, English, Italian, Spanish, French, German and Portuguese.
