It Is Finished!!!

A substantial contribution has just been made to the Catholic Scripture study resources that are available on the internet. The entire Haydock Catholic Bible Commentary is now online..........the entire thing. The explanation for the printed edition reads, in part:
  • Throughout the 1800's the best known Douay-Rheims Bibles were known as "Haydock's Bibles" because of the powerful footnotes or commentary that was selected by Fr. Haydock to help the faithful to understand Scripture according to the mind of the Church. The Haydock commentary in this edition was taken from a Bible originally printed in 1812 and includes the Saints who were given the title "Father of the Church" because of their outstanding writings explaining Holy Scripture. Fr. Haydock also included notes from other eminent scholars which soundly refute Protestant errors on various passages from the Bible which give important historical explanations to help every reader to better understand God's Holy Word.
It's a little hard to read sometimes, b/c of the various abbreviations of words and names. But, it is still extremely valuable, especially since Catholic Scripture commentary on single books is hard enough to find online, let alone the entire Bible. Putting the Haydock Bible commentary online has taken at least 2 years, maybe even longer. I give the webmaster my heartfelt thanks for laboring so intensely to make this resource available to the masses.

Pax Christi,
