Church Documents

This is just a page where you can get all the Encyclicals, Exhortations, Apostolic Letters, Constitutions and others writings from the Popes that I’ve gotten to.

Items marked CST are documents which deal with Catholic Social Teaching.

When I started this blog I said I was going to be doing some type of overview on the Vatican II Documents, I haven’t got to it yet but I will get to them.
