North 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 pioneer Catholic Bible search engine.

This is the first complete Catholic Bible made available online for keyword search. The original Bible has 73 books. The translations in both English and Spanish are approved by the Vatican.

The Catholic.net Bible search engine adopts social media optimization allowing users to share Bible passages on several of the most popular social media based websites. 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.

Volunteers under the care of different social service entities in Mexico City worked on the realization of this project, through a social aid program carried on 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 the hard work of everyone involved in this project, and also to the USCCB for making the Bible search possible,” states Rosalia Tenorio, Catholic.net Director. “This tool aims to help the faithful in their Biblical studies and to facilitate scripture sharing,” adds 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: es.catholic.net/biblia
