The story behind My Catholic Faith audio book

The My Catholic Faith audio book is a project that is over 2 years in the making. My Catholic Faith audio book is the complete and unabridged audio recordings of the book My Catholic Faith: A Catechism in Pictures. Some Catholics are familiar with the original book while most are not.

My Catholic Faith: A Catechism in Pictures is very popular among Catholics who attend the Latin Mass, or as Pope emeritus Pope Benedict XVI referred to as the Extraordinary Form of the Mass. The reason for this is for many reasons. One of the reasons is for its simplicity because it is based largely on the Baltimore Catechism, which was commissioned at the Third Plenary Council of Baltimore in 1884.

One priest in particular, often times would refer his parishioners to get My Catholic Faith: A Catechism in Pictures if they had questions regarding the Catholic Faith. This writer in particular, was introduced to My Catholic Faith: A Catechism in Pictures through a very close friend of the family who had that priest refer it to them. That priest was Fr. Kenneth Walker, FSSP (Requiescat in pace). Fr. Walker was parish priest who was ordained a priest in accordance with the Extraordinary Form of the Mass (1962 Missale Romanum). Fr. Walker was a member of Fraternitas Sacerdotalis Sancti Petri (The Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter) which was dedicated to the Latin Mass. Fr. Walker was murdered in the rectory of Mater Misericordiæ (Mother of Mercy) Mission in Phoenix, Arizona on the night of June 11, 2014. The idea to move forward with turning My Catholic Faith: A Catechism in Pictures into a professionally read unabridged audio book came shortly after the loss of Fr. Walker.

The entire My Catholic Faith audio book is dedicated to Fr. Kenneth Walker, FSSP (Requiescat in pace).

Fr. Walker, Pray for us.
