Everyone’s favorite Fr. Z. has gone and done what I considered doing last week, he made an audio recording of the encyclical Lumen Fidei, the new one that was co-authored by Benedict and Francis.–Thank God that he did, because, among other reasons, mine wouldn’t have sounded very good at all.–You may download the audio of Lumen Fidei in mp3 format over at Fr. Z. blog.

Be sure to offer him a big “Thank you,” and consider throwing a few nickels in his donation box.  He is a quality guy who has produced a quality audio version of a quality encyclical by some high quality Popes.  We need to encourage this sort of activity.  Go listen and be blessed.
