Catholicism.org has many feeds for you to use in RSS readers, on your personal blogs, or on other webs sites. We also have a Facebook Application that uses RSS. (If you would like to learn about RSS, please scroll down to “About RSS.”) All authors and all categories have their own feeds. Here are some of the main feeds you can use:
The Main Catholicism.org Feed (every new posting to the site, but not the online store)
To find feeds for other authors, simply go to that author’s page and click on the RSS logo just to the right of center at the top of the page.
To find feeds to the other sections, simply go to the desired category, either from the pull-downs up top or the big footer down below, and click on the RSS logo just to the right of center at the top of the page.
RSS (Really Simple Sindication) solves a problem for people who regularly use the web. It allows you to stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the sites you are interested in. You save time by not needing to visit each site individually. You ensure your privacy, by not needing to join each site’s email newsletter.
Feed Reader or News Aggregator software allow you to grab the RSS feeds from various sites and display them for you to read and use.
A variety of RSS Readers are available for different platforms. Some popular feed readers include Amphetadesk (Windows, Linux, Mac), FeedReader (Windows), and NewsGator (Windows – integrates with Outlook). There are also a number of web-based feed readers available. My Yahoo, Bloglines, and Google Reader are popular web-based feed readers.
