    Thank you for this site. You have put together an amazing resource for solid Catholic reading. I have spent hours going through everything on your site and I look forward to spending many more going through all these books. Thank you!

  3. Kevin Hanlon says:

    I am looking for a catechism to instruct my young grandchildren in the faith. I was reading a pamphlet published by a reputable publisher titled “Reminiscences of St. Anthony Mary Claret”. Accordingly, “On beginning a mission his first care was to gather the children and to teach them the catechism.” It goes on to say…”Father Claret not only wrote the catechism, but he also taught it….” Do you know if this catechism is available, and if so in English”? I would like to follow his manner and method in instructing my grandchildren.

  7. TFP says:

    A beginner is asking which sort of e-reader would be best or is compatible with the greatest number of catholic books in particular dealing with apostolic & church fathers, desert fathers, medieval writers and especially on mysticism.

    • Petra says:

      Many of these books come in the pdf format, therefore can be read on any device. The .mobi format can be read on the Kindle, which is probably the most popular e-reader.

  8. Peter Gribbin says:

    The black and white image on your homepage – the one at the very bottom of the row of paintings on the far right – is a work that Kevin Hanlon of Smyrna, GA has written to me asking who the artist might be. Could you provide me that information? Thanks Much,

    Diary: Divine Mercy in my Soul by St Maria Faustina Kowalska is missing!

  11. pastor of our first perpetual adoration chapel asked St. Joseph’s Press to locate a print on St. Peter Julien Eymard.
    do you know where we can obtain a copy right free image
    of St. Peter Julien Eymard – a traditional image of him
    near the monstrance or holding it or near the most Blessed Sacrament. If there is no public domain prints, But there is one to purchase, we would be interested in that too.
    Thank you, Mrs. M. Shema

    Hola muy estimado en Nuestro Señor JESUCRISTO.

    Por gracia de DIOS, he dado con su sitio en internet y he podido bajar y guardar, varios libros hermosísimos, los cuales de otra manera, me hubiese sido imposible de obtener.
    Le doy las gracias y con mucho gusto pediré al Señor DIOS porque lo santifique cada vez más, y lo lleve a Su Santísimo Reino de los Cielos.

  14. sue says:

    You have so many books! Awesome!
    Do you happen to have an English translation of Don Bosco’s book for youth? Il Giovane provveduto?

  15. joseph says:

    the resources on this site, especially your library of links and catholic books is very rewarding for my spiritual growth. this site needs to stay, please advise how we can donate to it,

    • T C says:

      If it be God’s will for the site to stay, it will stay. In any case, a prayer would be much appreciated. As for donations, please give them to good traditional priests who are upholding, defending and teaching the true doctrine and trying to steer souls to heaven amidst the mass apostasy. They need our support. Thank you and God bless.

  16. Kristyn says:

    Hello, I am wondering if you know of a source which lists Bible references and which Mass they might be found in?
    Thank you! God bless you!

    WONDERFUL Site………Thank you for all he work!

  18. Rose Mary says:

    What a great assortment of books-if only more were in the audio format!

  19. I just wanted to say thank you for all those books you made available on this website. I also hope that it is all right to copy your picture of the saints to include in my post on facebook for our church for all saints day. Keep up the awesome work you do for God!!! God Bless!!!

  20. joseph dwyer says:

    This is a truly amazing site and may God bless and reward you greatly for the charity shown here….I have included a link on my website

    Are these definitely all free?

    • T C says:

      Thank you. Yes, they can all be read or downloaded for free. (However, the responsibility is ultimately with the publishers who have uploaded or published the books on their websites, so depending on what you intend to do with the books – e.g. in case of any commercial activity – I’d recommend you double-check the status with the publisher. That being said, most of the books are very old and in public domain.)

  21. Elena says:

    Thank you very much!!! Great job!! My pray for you!!!

  22. I am the volunteer librarian for St. Mary Catholic Church in Delaware, OH, Adult Faith Formation. Your list is so comprehensive and what a welcome resource for our struggling first year initiative. Deo gracias!


  24. T C says:

    I’d like to ask everyone to kindly abstain from any debates (on theology, popes, the Church, etc) in their comments, as well as from posting anything that incites such debates. The purpose of this website is to offer an easy access to good and doctrinally sound Catholic books to anyone who wishes to read them. This site is for everyone, whether they be traditional Catholics, Novus Ordo, or non-Catholics, and irrespective of what position they hold about the post-Vatican II church and hierarchy. While each of us may have good (and sometimes theologically convincing) reasons to believe in one position or another, I think it is safe to say that nobody – except the good God – can know, with 100% certainty, what is the truth about the Conciliar Church and the post-Conciliar bishops of Rome. We will only know the truth about everything once we are in Heaven – but first we need to get there! That, and nothing else, is the aim of this website: to help souls (be it only in a very small way, by providing sound Catholic reading) live good Catholic lives and die in the grace of God.

    Therefore, I will not publish comments that would make this site descend into any debates, divisions, accusations, etc – if that is your aim, there are (sadly) already plenty of other websites where you can do so. Consequently, comments that try to promote (or dismiss) one position or another will also be left unpublished – for the reason cited above – even if they may have some merit. If your recent comment has not been published or has been deleted, this was the reason.
    Catholics need to treat each other in charity, and help each other where possible; infighting will not help us save souls (neither our own nor those of others). Thank you for your understanding. God bless.

  25. Doug says:

    How does one get the Kindle
    format to work in Kindle for the Windows 8.0 version?

    • T C says:

      To put the books onto your Kindle you can simply download the .mobi format of the book to your PC (.mobi is the standard “kindle format”, though a Kindle can also read .pdf, .doc, and some other formats) and then transfer or email it to your Kindle. I am not familiar with Kindle for Windows 8, but assume that it can be synchronized with your Kindle library. Sorry I can’t help more… probably best to read the instructions of your Kindle for Windows 8 app. 🙂

  26. maureen says:

    i have a load of catholic literature books, stories of the saints, mass books and pamphlets. Is there anyone who can make use of these books.

    • T C says:

      Maureen, thank yo for your kind offer. It would help if you could post a list of the books (or if you prefer you can send it by email to info (at) Thank you and God bless.

  27. Mark says:

    I am writing from the England UK …how can I read the writings in English ? some are in English but other not when I click on them…you have THE most amazing website please let me access all your great works

    May God bless you

    • T C says:

      Mark, not quite sure what you mean… all the links lead to english-language books (at least on my computer). Except on the one page that is specifically for spanish-language ones, of course. Can you please provide an example so that I can look into it? God bless.

  28. BLMartinez says:

    Hello. This is such a great site with so much for all of us to read and learn from. We are all Blessed to have much to reach about God, The Church, Jesus, Mary, Joseph and so many other issues. God Bless

  29. Boo says:

    I’ve heard it said that if you help save a soul your own is thereby saved. I suspect that God Who cannot be outdone in generosity has a special reward for those who supply treasures like these books to help us!
    May each good thing we find therein find its home in your soul. Thank you so much!!

  34. Can I use Prayers out of these Books to compile a prayer book to have printed, and it will be -0 prophite Also can OI get E-mail when new books are posted to this web site ????

    • T C says:

      I don’t see why you couldn’t use prayers from these old prayer books (which contain prayers Catholics have always prayed, and which – the prayer books, I mean – come with an imprimatur) to compile your own prayer book.
      As for emailing you when new books are added: I could certainly do that; however, books are usually added at least once a week – are you sure you want to get an email every time? Will wait for your confirmation. God bless.

  35. I have just recommended your site to my LOVE CRUCIFIED COVENANT COMMUNITY. See our site here:
    Also, we have just published SIMPLE PATH TO UNION WITH GOD [formation for book for Christ’s martyrs of love], and the pdf file is available free to those interested:

    Please help me identify the artwork on the sidebar of the home page. It’s the black and white titled Santa Missa e1377670194340. Showing the angel holding the chalice. I would like to obtain a copy of the original suitable for framing…

    • T C says:

      Kevin, unfortunately I do not know. (My guess would be it comes from an old book or holy card… or priestly ordination card or some such – but that’s just a guess.)

  37. David hayward says:

    wonderful site but he’s the but trying to find some thing is difficult no search box God Bless

    • T C says:

      There is a search box (at the top of the right column)…the problem is that the search only shows you whether the title is on the list or not, but then you still need to scroll down the long list of titles to look for it. I’ve tried a number of different plugins (for search boxes) and all result in the same: they do not show the specific link to the searched for title but only the link to the main page listing all the books. If anyone knows how to fix this (or what plugin to use), kindly contact me at info (at) Thank you. God bless.

  38. David Porter says:

    On your free books page, there is a link to a pdf called “The Great Apostasy”. The file is hosted at a site . The pdf does not say who the author his. The site seems to be set up for this book, but I can’t find any information there either. I was wondering if you know who wrote this book. I think it’s a wonderful book, and I’d like to know more about the author, and hopefully read more of his work. I also have a few questions for him. I’m asking you because you’re the only place on the internet that links to this book, so I’m hoping you might know something.

    • T C says:

      I’m afraid I don’t know anything about the author. Have linked to the book because it seemed worth reading. Perhaps you can contact the author by submitting a comment on that site. God bless.

  39. E. Richardson says:

    To Whom It May Concern:

    When I clicked on “Fatima — in Lucia’s Own Words” pdf, Error 403 from was received.

    Can someone help me with this?


  40. E. Richardson says:

    Thank you so very much! God Bless you!

    Do you have a link for Autobiography of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque – pdf, also?

    The same error message 403 is received.

    Thank you, again.

    • T C says:

      Unfortunately I can’t find it anywhere else (except on However, there are eight different biographies of St. Margaret Mary on the list, written by various priests and religious. God bless.

  41. Sr. Catherine says:

    Do you have any material on St. Faustina and Divine Mercy?

  42. Mara Persic says:

    The Diary of St. Faustina is not in the public domain. The rights to it are held by her Order. You may be violating copyright law by sharing these bootleg files.

    Also, many of the links on your free materials page are to unauthorized editions of titles hels in copyright by their authors, religious orders and publishers.

    Sharing bootleg copies essentially robs Religious Orders of and essential means of support.

    Please contact me at to discuss this matter.

    • T C says:

      The Diary is on listed as being in the public domain: (Public Domain Mark 1.0: “This work has been identified as being free of known restrictions under copyright law, including all related and neighboring rights.”)

      As you can see we do not ever upload any title but merely post links to titles already available on mainstream sites such as and similar. Therefore, if removes the link (which they would undoubtedly do if indeed any copyright had been breached), it will of course also disappear from this site.

      We are sacrificing our own free time to gather links to already publicly available Catholic material for the help of the faithful, many of whom live in countries where these books are not available for purchase. We do not have ANY financial benefit from this work whatsoever – on the contrary, it costs us a considerable amount of time as well as money. It is done with only one objective – to help save souls.

      It is frankly disappointing that a self-proclaimed traditional Catholic book seller would want to prevent people from having access to good Catholic reading material – especially in these times when the vast majority of “Catholic” books are more likely to lead souls to confusion, heresy and hell. (Furthermore, most people who are able to still prefer to purchase a physical book rather than read a pdf, so this is certainly no threat to your business.)

      Once again, the links posted here are from well known websites such as, google books, etc, which list works in the public domain or with a licence. We have no way to verify this for each single book – therefore, if you claim the Diary of St. Faustina (and/or any other work) is published/uploaded by in breach of copyright, kindly contact We will of course remove any title that (or any other publisher we link to) takes down or acknowledges as having breached copyright.

      For the sake of transparency all messages you shall send (and all replies) will be published here in these comments.

      God bless.

    • T C says:

      Thank you for your comment. In order to upload any book you’d first have to get it scanned. Most print shops should be able to do that for you. The resulting pdf file can then be uploaded online (assuming the book is not under copyright). God bless.

  52. T C says:

    Thank you very much for your prayers and comment! God bless.

    Many thanks for your work and your assistance.
    God bless,

    • T C says:

      Thank you for your kind comment. I’m afraid I don’t know who wrote it. Unless the author is anonymous, you may be able to get that information from where the work has been published. They might also have a pdf version. God bless.

  56. John Raymond says:

    What Missal should I use…62 was warmup to novos ordo. I think 47? is 47 the one to use?
    Do you have such? where could I get.

    I am so beaten down. I want to be a good father, but the Novos Ordo, it is a shame and I have abandoned it.
    I read St Pius X catechism to them…but my family thinks I am crazy. I tell them they are not in union with the saints and Popes(since J 23)

    • T C says:

      Thank you for your comment. Your choice of a Missal would generally depend on what your priests use (most traditional priests, incl. the SSPX, use the 1962 rubrics). That said, you wouldn’t find it much of an issue to use an older Missal as the changes were still relatively minor; and if you wish to use the Missal for your daily reading at home, I’d certainly recommend you to pick a pre-1955 one. (The 1962 Missal includes the changes of John XXIII and Pius XII, which is where the early seeds of the destruction of the Catholic Mass had been planted. In the mid 1950s, under Pius XII, the Holy Week liturgy was modified – any pre-1955 Missal will have the original, ancient Holy Week rites.)

      You can download various Missals from our site (, section “Traditional Liturgy”). For instance, the well known Fr. Lasance Missal:

      You can also buy the physical version of various pre-1955 Missals online. For instance the famous St. Andrew Missal from 1945 (; or the 1945 Fr. Lasance Missal ( Used copies can often be found very cheaply at ebay or

      As for the second part of your comment: Don’t despair. If you can get to a traditional Mass, do so as often as possible (even if it requires sacrifices). You are already doing the right thing with your children – it’s important to pass the true Faith on to them, and teach them proper Catholic doctrine. You can also read them the lives of the Saints and other (age appropriate) Catholic books. As for the family members who disapprove or mock you, all you can ultimately do is pray for them. In our times many good Catholics who are clinging to the Faith are having to bear all sorts of persecutions, ridicule, insults, etc, often from their own families. The most important thing is to persevere until the very end. Our Lord will greatly reward all the sacrifices you’ve made for His sake while trying to preserve your Faith (and pass it on to your children, so that they too may save their souls). And by offering Him everything you are made to go through, you could help convert your family as well (even though that might require years of resigned suffering on your part). Trust in the good God, and do all that you can (He doesn’t ask anything impossible). God bless you.

    Buscando material, porque estamos completando y re-estruturando nuestra biblioteca, providencialmente encontré este sitio. Nos ha sido de enorme utilidad!
    Tengo una pregunta,he visto libros muy buenos on-line pero como monjas contemplativas, el tiempo para usar internet es muy limitado, además justo uno de los libros que me interesa no está disponible, podríamos tener acceso a los libros on-line de otra forma?
    Me interesan particularmente dos: “La acción del Espíritu Santo en las almas” de A. Riaud y “El Espíritu Santo” de Mons. Martínez.
    Desde ya le agradezco cualquier ayuda que pueda darnos, y sinceramente cuente con nuestras oraciones.
    Dios le bendiga abundantemente
