Download Amoris Laetitia for eReaders (.mobi .epub .pdf)

Once again, Pope Francis has written to the people he shepherds, the entire Catholic Church. And once again, the release of the document in English is woefully inadequate for the wide dissemination intended, having been released in English only as a pdf file of inconvenient dimensions and with a variety of other issues. On the Vatican website, you can’t even download Amoris Laetitia in html.

So, in the interest of the Pope’s intention, that this document be freely available to and read by all Catholics, the people he has addressed, I spent the past few days converting the Vatican supplied text into a variety of formats. These versions are faithful to the original, preserving italics and all footnotes.

Please note, there are no ads on this page. This service is an expense to me; there is no ad revenue from page hits, and I do not take donations. If you’re interested in thanking anyone, thank Pope Francis by donating to Peter’s Pence.   Lumen Fidei, Evangelii Gaudium, and Laudato Si’ are also available.

^^^ Praise Be To You for Kindle and other ereaders ^^^

For some insight into Pope Francis’ encyclical, I recommend checking out EpicPew.com.  In particular, Ryan Mayer has a great piece up now about 10 Things in Laudato Si You Won’t Hear About From the Media.

Please, inform me if there are any other formats you would like to see.  It is my hope that the Pope’s words will reach the large audience for which his words are intended, and I believe that the ability to read his encyclical in ebook formats will greatly advance the mission of reaching the whole world with this message.  Pray that the world heeds Pope Francis’ exhortations to care for the earth in order to care for the people of the world.

If you are looking for Pope Francis’ earlier documents, Lumen Fidei and Evangelii Gaudium, you can find them here too.

The Joy of the Gospel .epub Generator

Some folks take issue with a member of the Church distributing Church documents to Church members.  I don’t, but some do.  So, while I have no intention of making copies of The Joy of the Gospel unavailable, I will offer an additional method of attaining an .epub version of Pope Francis’ latest exhortation…

Step 1.)  Go to the Vatican’s English copy of The Joy of the Gospel.

2.)  Right click the page and save it to your computer.

3.)  Rename the file to The_Joy_of_the_Gospel-Pope_Francis.epub

4.)  Download this .epub generator.

5.)  Run the patcher and point it to the renamed file from Step 3.

ALL DONE!  The file is now an actual .epub version that you can transfer to your ereader, and you may delete the .bak file that was created in the process.  [This will not work for anything but the Vatican.va html file!]

Technical Note: I have only tested the patcher on a Windows 7 x64 system.  If it fails to work for you, let me know.

Download Evangelii Gaudium for eReaders, etc. (mobi, epub, pdf, docx)

UPDATE: The English translation of Evangelii Gaudium that was initially published was temporarily removed from the Vatican website.  When it returned, a few changes had been made; you may find discussions of the changes elsewhere.  The .epub and .mobi (Kindle) versions here have been updated to the latest translation.  The other file types have not been [I will get around to it and will note here when it’s done].

Evangelii Gaudium is freely available on the vatican website, in html and, once again, a poorly formatted pdf file, but you may also download the exhortation in a variety of formats ( epub, mobi, pdf, txt, doc, rtf, etc. ) below.  So, whether you want to download Evangelii Gaudium ( The Joy of the Gospel ) for your Kindle, Nook, tablet, smartphone, pc, or anything else, you can get it here.

The download source above was posted by ‘Catholic Files‘ in the comments section of the old Lumen Fidei post.  CF made available Lumen Fidei some months ago via comment postings on Simcha Fischer’s article about Brandon Vogt receiving takedown notices for having made the text of Lumen Fidei available in various formats on his own site.

My two cents on the whole copyright matter were already shared in my original post about Lumen Fidei, so feel free to head over there if you’re interested.

EDIT: Since you find it helpful to have the Pope’s new exhortation in one of these formats, please share this on Twitter or Facebook so that others can easily find it.  Just click one of the share buttons below the download links.

Lumen Fidei Audio is Free Too

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.
