[size=1][color="red"]*Note: The purpose of this thread is to aide members in finding resources for holy orders and the priesthood. All links come from the Catholic Defense Directory, created by phatcatholic and hosted here at phatmass. For the sake of ease, I am making some links here direct links to external sites. However, for the sake of records and in appreciation for the time spent by phatcatholic and others on the creation of the Directory, I am also linking directly back to whole categories and sub-categories. Please feel free to browse the Directory on your own and remember to rate the sites when you are finished! Thank you and may the Lord give you His peace.[/color]
