Whether you are inside or outside of the Roman Catholic Church, it's hard to be anywhere in the world and not be affected by this huge and long-lived institution, which boasts a billion members, while at the same time trying to play down its phenomenal wealth and political power. If anyone knows of a more objective or more thorough analysis than this website of what this church is in reality in contrast to what it claims to be, then I challenge him or her to direct us to it.
Although we could have made money over the 20+ years that we have been online, by allowing cash-paying advertisers to assail our guests with all kinds of distracting commercials, we have chosen instead to pay all of our expenses ourselves. So we hope that you will appreciate the very unique experience of being able to read page after page after page of informative, insightful and moving material without ever being annoyed by such avoidable distractions.
If you are a smartphone viewer, we are sure that you love your smartphone as much as we do ours, but you wouldn't want to skip a chance to see a movie in a theater in order to watch it on your smartphone, would you? As great as smartphones are, they are no match for movie theaters when it comes to entertainment, nor for computers (or tablets) when it comes to studying serious issues seriously.
If you had access to a tablet or computer, you would probably already be enjoying our lengthy, but very rewarding webpages on that device. So what we would suggest is that (after reading through this tip) you switch to the formal view of this site by clicking on the computer link, and then use the "share" option on your phone to mail a link of that page to a mailbox on your own computer ( and/or to those of your friends, if you like), as a reminder to visit that page at some more convenient time, when you are at your computer and are better able to explore the whole expanse of this great website.
In the meantime, if you can't wait 'til later, just nudge the icon above to take you to the computer view right now, which we have at least tried to make as phone-friendly as we could.
