Teaching Tuesday - Catholic Audio Catechisms

Earlier in the summer, at the IHM conference, I purchased two CDs from a new-to-me vendor.

The lovely lady behind the table explained that the CDs were dramatized stories, each CD on a different theme. As we frequently drive 45 minutes to my parent's house to swim, I knew these could entertain our travels. Last summer the kids loved listening to a dramatic reading of Narnia during car rides.

I purchased Under Mary's Mantle which has"some of the most incredible historical accounts of the power and love of our Blessed Mother." There were stories about the scapular, the rosary and Our Lady that truly engaged us all. In fact, my soon to be 7 and 10 year old continue to request them. Listened to more than once was Robes of Glory, in which children see the effects of rushed rosaries prayed inattentively and without love. Motivates even the oldest of listeners....this one.....

Although I was told they are working on one about Guardian Angels, which I will purchase upon release, their newest offering is one that I also couldn't resist, Our Hidden God. It is a compilation of true stories of Eucharistic miracles, like Lanciano, revealing the Real Presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

Consider this one as a Holy Communion gift! I wish it was required listening for all Catholics as belief in and reverence towards the Real Presence is sorely lacking! The Eucharist IS what makes us Catholic and these stories are the source and summit of our faith!

The dramatized production of these recordings really engaged us all, captured our attention and I truly hope that the company continues making more CDs. I'd like to see multiple ones of Saint stories. After all, there are so many saints and their lives are an endless source of inspiration!

So, there's my Teaching Tuesday, Catholic homeschooling recommendation...hope you'll check it out because I think you will enjoy these! Perhaps you'll also join me in looking into their other offerings at Holy Family Press ?

I am not affiliated with this company.I paid for these CDs and want to share a good thing.
