We’ve added a new book by St. Bonaventure: Holiness of Life. In addition, for this book and for the books by St. Alphonsus Marie de Liguori, we’ve added versions in DJVU format. DJVU is a format developed for scanned images such as books, and is generally several times as small as PDF for the same quality. Try it out!

We’ve added a set of works by Saint Alphonsus Marie de Liguori. These books have not been proofread and converted to HTML format. They are scanned PDFs of the originally published books, and are therefore quite large (30+ Megabytes). A few of the works by Alphonsus Marie Liguori included are The True Spouse of Jesus Christ, The Way of Salvation and of Perfection, The Holy Eucharist, and the saint’s Letters.
We’ve just added a new translation of selected questions from the Summa Theologiae of Thomas Aquinas. These questions are selected to be the most important articles pertaining to the topic of virtue, vice, and gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Summa.
The goal of the translation is to be as easy to read as possible, while remaining entirely faithful to what St. Thomas himself says, rather than replacing it what some other teaching that seems to be simpler than his. In a few cases, when an article seems difficult to understand, or worded in an unnecessarily complicated manner, we’ve added a paraphrase after an article. For the longest articles, we’ve added outlines.
A new website has just been launched for the book Paths of Love: On the Discernment of Vocation. Related texts, commentary of the author, and readers’ comments and reviews of the book will in the future be posted there. If there is sufficient interest, a discussion page will also be set up on that website.
