I am posting links to audio books available for free at; the only books I'm posting are those which I know to be Catholic.  These books are all in the public domain and read by (excellent) volunteers. 

This is a new project, there will be more books to come.

I would recommend you download the zip mp3 file for the entire book rather than individual chapters.  

Enjoy and learn!

The Dialogue of St. Catherine of Sienna in 5 parts:

The Dialogue of St. Catherine of Sienna part 1 The first part, A Treatise of Divine Providence, discusses love of God, love of neighbor, and how all sins and virtues ultimately hinge on actions towards one's neighbor.

The Dialogue of St. Catherine of Sienna part 2 The second part of the book, "A Treatise on Discretion", discusses how all good things must be done with discretion, which is part of love; how Christ is like a bridge; how virtues and good works should not be done out of fear or as an end in themselves, but out of love; and how the soul should learn to love God unconditionally as a friend and adopted child, not just for God's good gifts.

The Dialogue of St. Catherine of Sienna part 3 The third part of the book, "A Treatise on Prayer", discusses all sorts of things: the value of tears, Communion, priests, a good death, and of course prayer.

The Dialogue of St. Catherine of Sienna part 4 The third part of the book, "A Treatise on Obedience", discusses Christ's obedience, the way that obedience enhances other virtues, and how obedience is promoted by the religious life.

The Dialogue of St. Catherine of Sienna part 5 The fifth and final part of the book, comprised of the translator's Introduction (giving historical information), and his appendix, a letter from one of St. Catherine's associates telling about her death.

Hi John,

Most of BPW's stuff is in the video section.  These are just audio books.

Comment by John Alexander on October 11, 2019 at 11:33am

It would be good to have as much as possible films with Bishop Williamson preaching. 

Comment by Flavia Talladen Schott on October 7, 2016 at 6:28am

Deo gratias! 

Thanks so much for this privilege of free access of the most important literature and history of our lives.! Ave Maria!

Comment by Sue K on July 17, 2015 at 11:32am

These make wonderful gifts for mission priests who have to travel great distances to bring us the sacraments.  Find out what playing device they have, CD or MP3 player, before you burn the discs. 

Comment by Dawn Marie on June 15, 2015 at 6:13pm

Sue I'm copying your post and pasting it in the Kingship of Christ Study Group.  Excellent find!  Thank you+

Comment by Sue K on June 15, 2015 at 11:29am

The Great Encyclical Letters of Pope Leo XIII  This is a must read for a good these tiresome days so filled with nonsense!  Pope Leo addresses many of the crazy issues we hear about today, albeit before they "bloomed" (marriage, government, freemasonry and naturalism, religious synchronicity, etc.) giving sound reason to combat the jabberwockies.  Definitely a 5* read.

Comment by Veronica Mowery on May 7, 2015 at 8:52pm

Getting ready for a new Homeschool year and found some gems, thank you!

Comment by Sue K on March 30, 2015 at 11:39pm

Sunny-Gem, I agree, alleluia audio books is a wonderful website. They are continually adding more books.  Here's another great site: Catholic Audio Books.  You can sign up on both sites to be e.mailed new listings!  I also heard By Thy Love and Grace.  So many great books are available: a new addition is the encyclicals of Pope Leo XIII, The Glories of Mary, and True Devotion to Mary.  Not enough time to hear them all.  Thanks to all the devoted readers of these books.

Comment by isabelle de mers on December 13, 2014 at 9:10pm

The Life of Mary as seen by the mystics is a WONDERFUL book, compiled by Raphael Brown...published by TAN books easy read and gets one in touch with OUR MOTHERS LIFE...

Thanks, Dawn. Sorry, Isabelle, I couldn't find that book in free audio format.  The Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ by Bl. Catherine Emmerich of course has lots of wonderful information about St. Joseph.

Comment by Dawn Marie on February 20, 2014 at 6:32pm

I didn't find it in audio but visual I did.

The Mystical City of God are my favorite book (s) but I have not been able to find

it in audio form either.

I'm looking for the family that over took Christ too and The Three religious Rebels !

Comment by Sue K on August 26, 2013 at 8:19pm

Haven't been able to find The Mystical City, DM. I'll keep looking. It was already on my search list! People are always posting newly completed books. I will defiantly keep it in mind. I've been listening to The Dialogues of St. Catherine of Siena and Pastoral Care Pope St Gregory. What wonderful writing...very helpful material.
