Liturgical Meditations - Audio Downloads

Written by Capuchin Fr. Bernardin Goebel, Franciscan Meditations is a 7-volume set published in 1962 that is extremely difficult to obtain today.

Each MP3 audio file features an insightful segment from Fr. Goebel about a day in the Church's Liturgical Year per the calendar of the traditional Roman Mass.

Note: 80 meditations will be initially offered during the 2018-2019 liturgical year. These recordings will include all of the Sundays, selected seasonal feasts, and octave days per the calendar of the 1962 Roman Missal.


The list below indicates the audio files from this time period which will become available in advance (usually at least 3 weeks). Eventually all of the readings featured in Franciscan Meditations (which numbers nearly 200) will be offered.
