PDF Files

Here are special files which came from my big website under the index called "Catholic Resource Index." I have these files in my computer in full text (html files) but it would take weeks to translate them into suitable files for this type of website. In some cases PDF files were found or my files changed into PDF file format. 


Some of these files are very long. We request you copy the file you want from our website to your own computer so as not to tie up our website for hours. Thanks.
