Free Traditional Catholic Books

 

Thanks to technology, and perhaps due to Christianity’s low status in our modern liberal age, there is a  fantastic treasure trove of good, traditional Catholic books available for free or near-free. Below are links to valuable and timeless Catholic texts (including those written by great saints and Fathers and Doctors of the Church) that you can read and download for free. Take advantage of this – they have changed my life and will change yours, too. Tolle et lege!

 

Please say  a prayer for my sanctification. May God reward you for your charity.

 

(Due to the length of the book list it became necessary to split it in two. The second part can be found here.)

    • T C says:

      Depends on what the objective is… for a summary of Catholic teaching you can use a catechism (several options are listed in the section ‘Catholic Bible, Catechism, Doctrine’ – for instance, the Catechism of St. Pius X is a more compact one. Many of the books in the section ‘Our Faith’ are also great for learning about the Faith.

  38. Mary says:

    Thank you. I love to especially listen to the audio books. The only thing is that I am having a hard time relating to some of the stories of the saints. I feel so different from them. Partly that I am not holy enough and partly because they lived in such a different time. I’m starting to feel guilty for sleeping on a comfortable bed.

    • T C says:

      Indeed, we’ve grown so accustomed to comfort and ease of life that the mere idea of the penances and sufferings of the saints of old (or even modern ones, like St. Gemma, Padre Pio, Bl. Alexandrina, etc) seems repulsive and terrifying. Ultimately, the ability to do such things (and also to bear involuntary sufferings with patience and even joy) is a measure of our love of God. The saints were able and willing to do this because they loved God above all else.

      What really matters is not how much and how severe penance and mortification one performs, but the love (of God) with which one does everything. We can gain as much – if not more – merit by sanctifying all our daily acts – i.e. by doing everything we do (no matter how small or insignificant!) for the love of Jesus and by uniting all our acts, thoughts, words, etc to Him and to His life, suffering and death. Thus all our acts, washed in His precious Blood and united to Him, done with a pure intention (for the love of God) would have great merit, and would save countless souls. A simple act of love of God (something all of us can do many times throughout the day) is worth infinitely more than the greatest works done with less love.

    • T C says:

      Ave Maria! I’m afraid I wasn’t able to find it, neither an electronic version nor printed. It exists in Latin and Italian (and a couple of other languages)…not sure whether it has been translated to English. Sorry I couldn’t help. God bless.

    Do you know where I could get or read “The Third Spiritual Alphabet,” by Francisco de Osuna? I am interested in the one published by Burns, Oates, and Washbourne in 1931 and not the one published by Paulist. I know it is out of print, but I cannot find it on used books lists either. Thank you, Cynthia Feldman

    Dear Traditional Catholic Books,

    TAN Books holds the exclusive licensing agreements with the rights holders to a number of titles in your list.

    Please contact TAN Books at 800-437-5876 EXT 243 to discuss the titles under TAN copyright. Thank you.

      As you have also posted a similar comment on the Contact page, we paste here the copy of our reply:

      The Diary is on archive.org listed as being in the public domain: https://archive.org/details/St.FaustinaKowalskaDiary. (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 archive.org and similar. Therefore, if archive.org 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 archive.org, 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 archive.org in breach of copyright, kindly contact archive.org. We will of course remove any title that archive.org (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.
