1. St. John Paul II - Letter to Artists
http://catholiccultureaudioboo... download (audio/mpeg, 59.68Mb)

Description:

"Artists are constantly in search of the hidden meaning of things, and their torment is to succeed in expressing the world of the ineffable. How then can we fail to see what a great source of inspiration is offered by that kind of homeland of the soul that is religion?"

Today, in honor of the feast of St. John Paul II, we take a brief departure from Newman and the Fathers to bring you his Letter to Artists.

Karol Wojtyla, as he was known prior to his election to the papacy, was an artist himself. A poet, a playwright, and an actor who co-founded and performed with one of the most important Polish theater troupes of the last century, Wojtyla left behind an artistic legacy often overlooked for his many contributions elsewhere.

With Letter to Artists, however, it seems clear that St. John Paul remained an artist at heart his whole life.

Slightly abridged.

2. St. Ignatius of Antioch - Letter to the Romans

Description:

October 17th is the feast of St. Ignatius of Antioch and we’re marking the occasion with a reading of St. Ignatius’ Letter to the Romans, our very first Patristic work featured on this podcast.

The Letter to the Romans is perhaps the most well known of St. Ignatius' letters. It’s certainly the most striking. In it, St. Ignatius implores the Church at Rome not to intervene in his impending execution.

3. St. John Henry Newman - The Salvation of the Hearer the Motive of the Preacher
http://catholiccultureaudioboo... download (audio/mpeg, 60.62Mb)

Description:

We’re kicking things off with the Saint whom this podcast has taken for its patron, none other than the newly canonized St. John Henry Newman.

This reading comes from one of Newman’s earliest publications after his conversion, a volume entitled Discourses to Mixed Congregations, and is the first of the eighteen discourses contained in that volume. It reads as a sort of orator’s mission statement, and it’s a mission we’d like to make our own at the outset of this audiobook series.
