September, 2000John Scarano,
The two websites for your perusing pleasure are: the “cybermonk’s” own web site- and a website from the pastoral staff of Creighton University www.creighton.edu/collaborativeministry .
The first is truly all-encompassing; it’s usually the first site I go to when I have a particular topic to look up. I am generally pleased with the fact that the links provided by Brother John are inclusive of theology from the right and from the left. This site will take you from EWTN to the writings of Richard McBrien. It provides a plethora of information from both perspectives and everything in between. It’s truly a “five star” site, worthy of a bookmark.
The Creighton site brings a unique concept in campus ministry. The
pastoral staff has developed a thirty-four week on-line retreat. They
call it an “e-treat.” There was a great review of the program
written in the May 12 “Retreat Supplement” pullout of the
National Catholic Reporter. I’m tempted to steal the whole thing
and try it for myself (another wonderful thing about the Internet-download
ability- probably not even a word yet). Obviously someone else needs
to write about Internet ethics.
