    Dear Maria, Thank you so very, very much for reading these “Great” encyclicals. It is ever so wonderful to hear the sane words of a sane pope whilst having the misfortune to live in a totally insane world and wondering if sanity exists: now or ever. Here is the proof that there is sound reason to be had! Thanks for your diligence in accomplishing this monumental project.

    • Thank you for your kind words, meakfish. I am glad to know that they are being listened to! I hope to record some more encyclicals in the near future – if I am able to find PD english translations, which can be difficult. I did find a copy of Pascendi that is PD, so I hope to do that one soon.

      God bless!
