Countless other classics on Church history, doctrine, lives and thoughts of saints and Church Fathers (including all the volumes of “Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers” and “Ante-Nicene Fathers”) can be downloaded at ccel.org. (The site unfortunately carries many Protestant books as well, so do your research to make sure any book you intend to read is Catholic and doctrinally sound.)

Other websites I recommend for free Catholic books: freecatholicebooks.com, saintsbooks.net/BooksList.htmlcatholicebooks.wordpress.com, basilica.org/pages/ebooks.php, isidore.co, obrascatolicas.com, (rare/out of print books in Portuguese, Spanish and English), liberius.net/langues.php (books in a dozen different languages).

For a vast quantity of texts, mostly in Latin, see DocumentaCatholicaOmnia.eu.  The Vatican Library – digitized – is here: http://digi.vatlib.it/mss/.

If you know the name of the book, author or topic, archive.org/details/texts and openlibrary.org are also helpful.

    Do you have….A Catechism of Mental Prayer, available? By Father Joseph Simler

    Thank you.

    • T C says:

      It’s not available in electronic form. It’s published and copyrighted by Tan Books, so I’m afraid you’d need to buy the physical book from them. We do have quite a few other good books on mental prayer in the section “Catholic life, path to holiness”. Also, here is another book on mental prayer by Fr. Joseph Simler: https://archive.org/details/guideofmanofgood00siml. God bless.

    Do you have any paperback or hardcopy books? I don’t always have a computer.

  41. Larry Cera says:

    Hello sir. We have talked on here briefly in the past, and I mentioned offering any assistance you may have need for in any way. I wanted to renew that offer as well as touch on the suggestion you mentioned of reading audio books. This is something I’ve thought of before your suggestion, due to the sparse offerings compared to the endless access of priceless works without copyright protection. Perhaps I can offer one and if my work is passable we may continue. Or, if it needs to be done in any particular way, you can direct my initial path. Thank you, again,, for your work. I have hundreds of books in the palm of my hand at all times thanks to your work. Dominus tecum. Pax Domini Nostri Jesu Christi tecum

  42. Larry Cera says:

    Please feel free to email me any time. I will happily provide cell number for texting, valise discussion as well.

  43. Onuh Boniface says:

    This exceptional site is the ‘numero uno’ when it comes to downloading traditional catholic literature.
    I would be very grateful if you could add St. Thomas Aquinas’ ‘Summa Contra Gentiles’ for subsequent download.
    Keep up the good job and may Our Blessed Lord and His most Holy Mother bless you for this job well done.

  44. Larry Cera says:

    I hope I haven’t missed your e,ail, as I just noticed you responded to that effect. If so, please drop me a line. If not, no concern. When you do get a chance, I look forward to talking. I tend to get a bunch of emails I blow right past, hence the question. I look forward to it.

    I’m looking for a book about beginning / understanding Devotion to the Holy Spirit. I did see two books with Holy Spirit in their title – one adult & one childs. I will start with these but I can see they aren’t really what I’m looking for. do you have any suggestions for a free e-book? thank you

    • T C says:

      Thank you for your comment. If you put “Holy Ghost” into the search box you’ll see many further books, including devotional ones. Just scroll down both of the pages (I and II) and you’ll find the various books (in several different sections) highlighted in yellow color. God bless.

  53. Pius Erhirienta says:

    What a goldmine!Many thanks to the organizers of this site!
    Just an appeal please. Kindly add “the faith of millions” by Fr Anthony O Brian to this site, for ease of assess.
    In my opinion, its a book an unbiased individual cannot but desire becoming Catholic after reading it.
