A new online Catholic Bible search engine, which enables people to find specific Scripture passages using keywords, has been launched. The program has been developed by Catholic.net with the support of the US Bishops' Conference. It is believed to be the first complete Catholic Bible translation made available for keyword search.
Both the English and Spanish translations of the Bible available at the site have been approved by the Vatican. The search engine also allows users to share Bible passages with their blogs, with Facebook and Twitter. It also allows people to add a search widget to their own personal Web page.
Rosalia Tenorio, director of Catholic.net, expressed the hope that this tool will "help the faithful in their Biblical studies and facilitate Scripture sharing."
