New Haven, CT -- (Catholic.net) -- 05/13/2010 – On the Feast of the Ascension and of Our Lady of Fatima, Catholic.net also celebrates the launching of its Catholic Bible search engine.

This online Catholic Bible with keyword search has Vatican-approved translations in both English and Spanish, with all 73 books of the Bible.

Catholic.net Bible search engine adopts social media optimization, allowing users to share Bible passages on several of the most popular social media based web portals. Additionally, the Web 2.0 enhanced Bible search is set up for content sharing. Users can download chapters of the Bible, thanks to the adoption of a SMART database. Additionally, users can add a Bible search widget to their own website or blog (the source code is available at: www.catholic.net/share).

Several volunteers worked on this project, including adolescents under the care of Social Services in Mexico City through a social aid program run by Catholic.net in Mexico. Financing for this project was in part provided by the USCCB, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

“We are most thankful to all the volunteers and to the USCCB for making our Bible search possible,” stated Rosalia Tenorio, Catholic.net Director. “This tool aims to help the faithful in their Biblical studies and to facilitate scripture sharing,” added Tenorio.

Users can access the Bible search right on Catholic.net’s homepage, and through the following URLs:

For English: www.catholic.net/bible
For Spanish: www.es.catholic.net/biblia  


PUBLICATION DATE: 2010-05-20
