Calling all Catholic newbies! Here are two fantastic free Catholic resources for you to help get to know your new Church :).
I recently discovered this website after picking up a free CD at my parish. It offers free booklets and audio CDs that are super helpful. I grabbed the audio CD of the Rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplet and have been using it almost every day. These are great, especially if you have not memorized the prayers yet. Stick it in your CD player and turn it on when driving. Pray along with them and boom! you’ve got your prayers done for the day.
Even if you do have the prayers memorized (I’ve got the Rosary down, but not the Divine Mercy Chaplet yet), I liked this better than praying on my own in the car. It makes you feel like you’re praying WITH others. Plus, it has additional prayers on here that I don’t have memorized like the Morning Offering and St. Michael prayer. LOVE IT!
If you’re an avid reader, you’ll want to check out Matthew Kelly’s DynamicCatholic.com site where you can get his and other Catholic books for FREE. If you read my blog, you know how important Kelly’s “Rediscovering Catholicism” book was to my conversion and I encourage everyone to get their hands on it. He also has other great books you can delve into. Please note, you do have to pay shipping.
