First Lumen Fidei, Encyclical by Pope Francis

Lumen Fidei the first encyclical by Pope Francis (completing the one begun by his predecessor), is available online now. On my phone I see it as a readable webpage sans the absurd parchment background that kept me away from the Vatican site for many years. Also available are options to print and to download a PDF file. Finally! Welcome to the 20th century, Vatican webmaster! Yes, I know the rest of us have been in the 21st century for quite some years. ;)

About Disciple

I am a pro-life activist, blogger, writer, poet, singer songwriter, musician, photographer, nerd, bookworm and Mac fan. I have three dogs, one of whom is well-travelled. (One was born after, and another joined the pack after, the days of mammoth road trips.) And the most important thing is: I was received into Holy Mother Church in 1996 and, through the grace of God, I love Christ and His Church more with every passing day. Thanks be to God!

      The parchment background would have been better had it been much lighter. The parchment did not provide enough contrast with the brown font for those of us who are older. Web usability is something many webmasters could learn more about. For readability nothing beats a white or a slightly off-white background & a dark dark font.
