MP3 Catholic Insight is a must have for your iPhone or Droid.
Catholic Vault has a plethora of educational apps. But if I had to pick a favorite (and I will), it would be this app. (So far)
There’s a 4 part retreat for women (part 1, 91 minutes, is free), talks by Blessed Mother Teresa, and many political topics such as re-defining marriage, life issues, and morality in public office. There is also an address from Pope John Paul II to women. One of my favorite talks on the app is entitled “Heroic Catholics” – and that one (almost an hour) is free.
For any Catholic who struggles with apologetics, this app is for you.
The inspirational talks by Mother Teresa and John Paul II alone are worth the $8.99 price tag, but even if you choose not to upgrade, the free version has hours of talks. Catholic Vault has yet to disappoint. The apps are clean, easy to use, bug free, and stream – they don’t eat up your battery while you’re listening.
Don’t leave for your summer road trips without one of these apps on your mobile device.
MP3 Church Fathers is fantastic for Easter – Pentecost. The Gospel sermons include the Gospel and a homily for the entire Easter season. This app includes Gospels and sermons for the entire liturgical year. The “Wisdom of the Fathers” section contains readings from various fathers of the Church.
St. Augustine on forgiveness, “Has it gone from your memory what He said while they crucified Him? Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
As usual, Catholic MP3 Vault does a beautiful job of bringing Catholicism to life. Hearing the wisdom of the Church is completely different from reading. There are hours of talks on this app. It’s a beautiful way to enrich your faith.
I am currently listening to “The Meaning of Truth” on MP3 Catholic Courses. This is another charming audio app in the Catholic MP3 Vault series. This particular talk is fascinating, as well as humorous. I’ve laughed out loud as often as I’ve marveled. What an interesting way to learn the faith. Granted, I’m old fashioned so I love these old radio addresses and talks. But I would think any Catholic interested in learning more about the faith would be taken with these apps that have an absolutely amazing amount of content packed into them. The talks are streamed, so they aren’t killing your battery life.
The Catholic Courses includes Philosophy, Theology, Scripture, and Saints. Various topics include political theory, spirituality of John Paul II, The Church and the World, and Adventures in Atheism (what can this possibly mean? I can’t wait to find out.)
“We always use the word [truth] correctly outside philosophy class.”
