Most of us experience Catholicism through a very narrow lens. In my case, it is as a New Englander, raised in a French suburban parish; currently in an ethnically diverse urban one. We may not even realize the many ways the Catholic faith is practiced throughout the world. From the time of the Roman Empire, Catholicism has always interacted with and borrowed from the culture of the places it traveled to. The result is a vibrant faith with many different traditions.
http://www.catholicsandcultures.org/ is a new site created by Holy Cross College to educate and expose Catholics to these various traditions. Catholics & Cultures is a growing, changing chronicle of the role of
Catholicism among the people and within the cultures where it is lived.
