Recommended Resources

These are some of my favorite resources to help you learn about and grow in the Catholic Faith. If you have recommendations, please send them to me so I can check them out and add them.

Audio

Relevant Radio: a network of radio stations that is talk radio about Catholic life. They discuss current events, the culture, and faith issues all through a Catholic lens.

Hearts and Minds: a podcast that talks about issues in our culture from a Catholic perspective.  You can listen to old episodes of the podcast, but it has ended.

Trending with Don and Timmerie: another podcast that stems from Heart and Minds and the Don Johnson show. It talks about engaging the culture in light of the truth revealed to us from the Catholic faith.

Among the Lilies: a podcast hosted by Cameron Fradd. She and her awesome guests talk about being a real woman while living the Catholic faith.

Catholic Stuff You Should Know: a podcast by some awesome priests who talk about Catholic stuff. I really can’t get more specific than that because they talk about everything from obscure Catholic facts to doctrine with lots of entertaining banter.

Catholic Answers Live: a podcast with the live recordings from the Catholic Answers talk show. You can also listen to the episodes live on the radio, over Facebook, or through Periscope.

Websites/ Apps

Masstimes.org: a website for finding times for adoration, confession, and Mass.

Catechism of the Catholic Church: a web page on the Vatican website. You can access the entire CCC on the website. While you can sort through the table of contents, I actually find it easier to just use search terms in Google that contain “Catechism of the Catholic Church” and the topic. It is an easy way to have a definitive statement on Catholic beliefs.

Catholic Answers: a website with a number of apologetics topics. I recommend sticking to the content from the apologists, but the forums can provide some interesting insight as well.

Blessed is She: a website for Catholic women. It has resources, daily devotions, and Facebook groups. It is a fantastic community for Catholic women!

Laudate: an app with a number of Catholic resources. It has daily readings, prayers, the Catechism, reflections, an interactive rosary, and examination of conscience, and more.

Relevant Radio App: an app that has a stream, prayer resources, podcasts, and more.

HabitBull: an app that allows you to track habits. I’m including this because I have found it helpful in striving towards certain spiritual goals like morning prayer, going to confession once in a certain time span, and more. Even the free version is very useful.

Books and Blogs

You can read my book reviews here.
