Liturgical Year 2017:

To better enable follow up on each section in The Catholic Navigator, The Catholic Tugboat and The Catholic Clipper weekly issues, we strive to base our sources on reliable ONLINE Catholic materials. Our hope is to make you, the mobile Catholic, better able to learn as you go about your daily life. However, occasionally we have had to source our commentary only from print material, for which we provide the pertinent information for ordering from a library or book seller.  All links have been accessed just prior to posting to assure that they are currently active. To access sources to print editions, move your cursor over the listing for the issue of interest and click to open.

Tugboat- 18 June 2017- Corpus Christi Sunday- Vol. III, Issue 30

Dear Parents…

In response to many inquiries about online materials for educating children in the faith, please see our link to “Catholic Sites on the Web” at the bottom of the ‘About Us” page. It is in downloadable PDF format for your ready use.
Regarding inquiries about a suitable Bible for children, it is important that it have the ‘nihil obstat’ and  ‘imprimatur’* of the Bishop in whose diocese the Bible was published. This is especially important for two reasons: first, the Bible must contain all the canonical books – 46 Old Testament and 27 New Testament books; and, secondly, the comments and footnotes must be in accord with Catholic Church teaching.
You should personally inspect selections to determine that the vocabulary is age-appropriate. Not every publisher takes pains to avoid the inclusion of strictly adult terms.

*for an explanation of these Latin technical words, please refer to
http://catholicstraightanswers.com/what-are-imprimatur-and-nihil-obstat-in-catholic-book/


       Bible Story books can be quite attractive to children, and again we urge caution—stories can be told in a captivating way and still miss what the Church had determined should be learned from the account. An imprimatur in these story books is essential as well.

For our purposes in preparing the June issues of The Catholic Tugboat we have consulted and adapted from approved print materials listed at the top of this web page.
