    Bl Pier Giorgio Frassati (Audiobook)

    Bl Pier Giorgio Frassati (Audiobook)

    A young man who spent his short life caring for the sick and infirm. A handsome and active young man from an influential family in Turin who dedicated his short life to the care of the poor and the sick and working for social and political reforms. Pier Giorgio Frassati's generosity was legendary. He often gave the clothes he was wearing to poor people he met who were in need. An open anti-fascist, a keen sportsman and mountaineer, an enthusiast of the theatre and literature, and a young man with a great devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, he stands as a great example of Christianity in action. His life was cut short by polio at the age of 24 and thousands of the Italian industrial city's poor lined the streets at his funeral. He was beatified in 1990 by Pope St John Paul II.

    St Josephine Bakhita - Survivor of Human Trafficking - Part 2 (Audiobook)

    St Josephine Bakhita - Survivor of Human Trafficking - Part 2 (Audiobook)

    St Josephine Bakhita was a trafficked child: abducted from her home and family by slave raiders, sold and re-sold, and horribly abused. To a succession of cruel owners she was a thing, not a person, and even her name was taken from her. Yet her discovery of Jesus Christ, her true master, gave meaning to her appalling suffering.

    Based on the ⁠Catholic Truth Society⁠ book by Jean Olwen Maynard, this audiobook tells the incredible story of a saint whose story is sadly very relevant for society today.

    “Human trafficking is an open wound on the body of contemporary society, a scourge upon the body of Christ. It is a crime against humanity.” (Pope Francis)

    St Maria Goretti (Audiobook)

    St Maria Goretti (Audiobook)

    In 1902 in an Italian village a young girl, Maria Goretti, was murdered during a sexual attack. Her killer, Alessandro Serenelli, himself a teenager, was a close neighbour well-known to her and her family. He had been threatening her for some time.

    What does it mean, how can it help, to say that she is a virgin and martyr? This is an often misunderstood and sentimentalised story. When many parents and teenagers strive for a balanced view of sexuality, of personal integrity, of Christian family life, and forgiveness to those who do irreparable harm, Maria's story speaks powerfully and authentically. It echoes Pope St John Paul II's cry to young people – 'Do not be afraid to be saints!'

    Based on the Catholic Truth Society book written by Glynn MacNiven-Johnston. ⁠⁠Available as an ebook here⁠.
