I am a Roman Catholic living in Nigeria. I was stumbling through the Vatican web site, searching for the place where I could read the Holy Father's encyclicals and letters, when I subsequently came across your web site and was hoping you could tell me what web sites I can read them from.

Hi, Chinyere —

Here is a list of web sites that contain the Holy Father's encyclicals in English.

Because the Vatican web site is a multi-language web site, you can start here, choose your language preference and click on the Papal archive button at the top of the page.

Here is the place on the Vatican web site where you can read the English version of current and previous Pope's Encyclicals and Apostolic Letters.

This page lists the last ten Pope with links to their writings:
The Holy See — The Holy Fathers

I hope this helps,
