"God forbid that I should glory save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom the world is crucified to me, and I to the world." (Gal. 6: 14)

Dear Friends,

I have encouraged many of you in the reading of the Sacred Scriptures especially during the upcoming season of Lent. Realizing the pressing demands of the world upon your time and in the desire to assist in any way I can, I have decided to make available some audio recordings of the Gospels. These recordings were originally made for my own private use, so there is nothing professional about them. I have been asked to make them available and so I am attempting to do that for this season of Lent so that you may be able to gain some spiritual benefit from them. I hope that these recordings will encourage us to a greater love for the Word of God and a burning desire to pick up the Sacred Texts ourselves as well as the commentaries that the Fathers of the Church have provided us, and understand them in a truly Catholic sense and not through any private interpretation, as the heretics are wont to do.

I welcome any questions, comments or suggestions that you may have.

May God bless you.
+Bishop Giles OFM
