    • Thanks for asking Lee. You can order a CD of the MP3s containing this 23 hour course from Besides our course on Thomistic philosophy, the CD includes courses in other branches of Philosophy, Theology, Scripture, and the Saints. They are presented by Dr. William Marra, Dr. John Rao, Dr. William Luckey, Fr. Kenneth Baker, Fr. Most, and Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen among others.

      NOTE: The CD includes MP3 files, not standard audio CD files. They may not work on your standard CD player. Your player must be capable of playing MP3 files. MP3 files can be played on almost any computer. There are many inexpensive MP3 players on the market. Most Smartphones like the iPhone can play Mp3 files. also offers the material (some free) as iPhone and Android apps.

      Hope this helps.

  1. Thanks for the reply. I already have several of Drs. Marra’s and Rao’s tapes and some of Frs. Most’s and Sheen’s books. At the moment I am most interested in getting the St. Thomas Aquinas’ audio series. But it is not clear to me how to order this series. Specifically I can’t tell from the website if I have to order several CDs or if the MP3 CD has everything on it. Could you please clarify this for me?

    PS I don’t mind getting everything as long as I get the ones that I am most interested in now. Thanks again. Lee.
