More Catholic MP3s: from Fr Z

In addition to the tremendous number of excellent MP3 talks available from Keep the Faith, including a large number of Bishop Fulton Sheen's (Sheen is likely to be beatified soon), and the MP3 available entirely free from Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice here, we'd like to draw attention to the wide range of free MP3s produced by Fr Zuhlsdorf (picture), the priest-blogger of 'What Does the Prayer Really Say?'. These are free, and include talks on controversial matters, sermons, and interviews: available here.

He also has a page of MP3s of liturgical prayers, said or sung in Latin, from the 1962 Missal. This is mainly a service for priests wishing to familiarise themselves with the pronunciation of the prayers, and also for laity who don't know the Traditional Mass and would like to become more familiar with it. The Passion of Matthew, from Palm Sunday, sung to the traditional chant melody, is extraordinarily moving. This is hardly a studio recording, but if you don't know it have a listen!

If you've got an MP3 player, who not use it for deepening your knowledge of the Faith? If you don't, you can probably listen to these from your computer.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
