So there's a fella' out there who is currently a member of Miles Jesu (Miles Jesu (Latin for Soldier of Jesus) is a form of consecrated life in the Church for the laity, known as an Ecclesial Family of Consecrated Life, whose purpose is "to instill Catholic ideals and goals in the world to further the Kingdom of Christ, making Him the Center of all human life"), and one of his personal evangelistic efforts is to make Catholic Rap. That's right, Catholic Rap.

And you know what? It's actually really good!


Here's a song to whet the pallet: 53 Beads on a String.

All of the tracks from all of his albums are available for download at his site, www.catholic-rap.com, but to get to them you have to go through a pop-up where he asks for a donation. You don't have to give one to get the song, but he has dedicated his life to serving Christ and donations are what keep him doing what he does. I've exchanged a few e-mails with him, and he's a top-notch guy. Do check him out.

Here are a couple of talks that I managed to find from the Diocese of Kalamazoo. I'm afraid I don't know too much about Msgr. Tom Martin, other than that he's the rector of St. Augustine's Cathedral in Kalamazoo, but Deacon Alex Jones is quite an interesting fellow. Here's a snippet from an article the CERC did on him:
"When Pentecostal minister Alex Jones came into the Church this past Easter he was not alone. He brought much of his congregation in with him.

When Detroit-born Alex Jones became a Pentecostal minister in 1972, there was little question among those who knew him that he was answering God's call to preach.

Now, many of his friends and family have dismissed the 59-year-old pastor as an apostate for embracing the Catholic faith, closing the nondenominational church he organized in 1982, and taking part of his congregation with him..."

Here are the talks:

The Last Things: Death, Judgment and Eternity - Msgr. Tom Martin (March 26, 2007)

The Sacrament of Marriage: Not Just a Private Matter - Msgr. Tom Martin (March 19, 2007)

The Sacrament of Baptism: A New Creation - Msgr. Tom Martin (March 12, 2007)

So one of the "hot" things to do right now is to host Theology on Tap sessions. Just about everywhere (with twenty-somethings and beer) has one. Here are links to pages with downloads -- there were FAR too many for me to link here. The subjects are as varied as "The Problem of Evil" to "Why Not Be A Mystic" to "Why Can't Women Be Priests". If you want something interesting (and often funny) to listen to, these are generally good.

The Arlington Diocese

The Diocese of Sioux Falls

The Ottawa Archdiocese

St. Brigid's in San Diego

Grand Rapids
(only one file - "Divine Intimacy" (MP3))

San Fernando

The Archdiocese of Dubuque


The Archdiocese of Chicago

The Archdiocese of Denver (only one file - "Are You Living A Double Life?" (MP3) )

If this sounds interesting, you might search for a Theology on Tap in your area -- there are far more who don't record them than are listed here.

Fr. Frank Pavone, MEV

National Director, Priests for Life
President, National Pro-life Religious Council
Pastoral Director, Rachel's Vineyard
Founder and Moderator General, Missionaries of the Gospel of Life

Fr. Frank Pavone is one of the most prominent pro-life leaders in the nation. He was born in Port Chester, New York and has been active in the pro-life movement since 1976. Cardinal John O'Connor ordained him to the priesthood in 1988. Fr. Pavone did parish work and taught in seminaries. In 1993, with the permission of Cardinal O’Connor, he became National Director of Priests for Life. In this full time position, he has traveled to all of the 50 states and to five continents, preaching and teaching against abortion and helping other priests to do the same.

He conducts seminars on pro-life strategy and is regularly invited to speak at national and international pro-life gatherings. Fr. Pavone appears often on national programs such as Larry King Live, Good Morning America, The O'Reilly Factor, and other shows on all the major networks. He is quoted in papers such as the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times. He is seen daily on EWTN and heard on Vatican Radio. His publications are distributed worldwide. He was with Terri Schiavo in her final moments and was an outspoken advocate for her life.


The Virgin Mary's Call to End Abortion

This series of 14 talks and homilies was given by Fr. Frank Pavone on a 1995 tour of the Rio Grande Valley with the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. These tapes show how the Church's teachings about Mary strengthen the pro-life commitment.

"As a Carmelite monk, the 16th-century Spanish mystic St. John of the Cross was well trained in the systematic theology of St. Thomas Aquinas. In Dark Night of the Soul, St. John's sharply organized mind gives clean shape to his mystical belief in a loving Being somewhere outside the realm of feeling, thought, or imagination, who can only be known through love. Dark Night of the Soul describes the process of purgation, first of senses, and then of spirit, that precedes the soul's loving Union with God. To quote from this book would detract from the coiled power of its tightly focused picture of the soul's progress; suffice it to say that there has never been a better book for discouraged Christians. When you cannot understand what or why you believe, but you find yourself unable to abandon faith, look to St. John for help."

--Michael Joseph Gross

The Ascent of Mt. Carmel


This spiritual classic, about dark nights of the soul and how to start to achieve union with God through prayer, begins with a look at the "night of sense". The second book deals with the "night of faith". Then the third book deals with the "night of the memory and will".


The final two books of the five book treatise are generally printed separately and called The Dark Night of the Soul. They are not included in this reading.

Introduction by the translator, E. Allison Peers23.6M
POSTED BY on 8:24 AM under , , ,

William A. Marra (February 20, 1928 — December 12, 1998) was a third-party Right to life candidate for President of the United States in the United States presidential election, 1988; his running mate was Joan Andrews. They received 20,504 votes.[1] Marra had also been a candidate in the Republican and Democratic parties' United States presidential primary in New Hampshire. In the former he received six write-in votes[2] and in the latter received 142 votes.[3]

He was a graduate of the University of Detroit Mercy School of Engineering and Fordham University, serving as a professor of philosophy at the latter. Marra was an active lecturer, opposing topics such as abortion, atheism and sex education.

For 17 years, Marra hosted a radio program called "Where Catholics Meet" on 710 WOR-AM in New York. On the show, he addressed issues facing orthodox Catholics in the post-Vatican II world. He often had guests. In the early 1990s, Marra hosted a TV program on the EWTN Global Catholic Network called "The Roman Forum." This program ran for two seasons and addressed many of the same issues as "Where Catholics Meet", but involved fewer guest hosts.

Marra founded Catholic Media Apostolate, an organization dedicated to the propagation of the Roman Catholic faith through the media. He was also heavily involved in [Keep the Faith], an organization similar to CMA.

Here are his talks:

How Absolute is Conscience?
