This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-great-encyclical-letters-of-pope-leo-xiii-by-pope-leo-xiii/
Pope Leo XIII (2 March 1810 – 20 July 1903), born Vincenzo Gioacchino Raffaele Luigi Pecci to an Italian comital family, reigned from 20 February 1878 to his death in 1903. He was the oldest pope (reigning until the age of 93), and had the third longest pontificate.

He is well known for his intellectualism, the development of social teachings with his famous papal encyclical Rerum Novarum and his attempts to define the position of the Catholic Church with regard to modern thinking. He issued a record eleven encyclicals on the rosary earning the moniker the "Rosary Pope".

This book includes thirty of his most well know encyclicals and letters. They cover a wide range of subjects, including, Christian marriage, socialism, communism, freemasonry, Anglican orders, and human liberty. Some of the encyclicals included in this volume are: Inscrutabili, Rerum Novarum, Quod Apostolici Muneris, Humanum Genus, Arcanum Divinae, Immortale Dei and many others.

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi Maria, :)

One small issue:

@ ~2:04 missed edit. Top of page 10, toward the end of the first paragraph.

...make semblance of being champions of country, of freedom, and every kind of right; in fine, the deadly kind of plague which infects...

Do the page numbers help? I can't remember if I've asked this before. :)

Thanks, Hugh. #1 is fixed and #2 is ready.

As for the page numbers, it depends. On an obvious repeat that just needs to be snipped out, no I don't really need them. If it something I may need to re-record, then they are very helpful. :-)

Hi Maria,

1 is okay.

2 - @ ~2:18 missed edit.

...these sectaries withhold obedience and preach up the perfect equality of
all men in regard to rights alike and duties.

Snow in the middle of April, woohoo! I hope you made a snowball, stuck it in the freezer so you can use it in the middle of summer. :lol:

Well, I'm afraid that never crossed my mind! I had sprained my ankle a few days before and was still hobbling around on crutches that morning, so going out in the snow wasn't high on my list! (Mostly better now.. :-))

Hi Maria,

4 is okay. :)

Sorry to hear about your ankle, but glad it's doing better. :D Must have been pretty bad to put you on crutches.

Thanks, Hugh ~ 5 is ready.

Yep, I turned it pretty bad. Was only on crutches for a few days, but it still isn't completely right almost three weeks later.

Thanks Hugh. Next one is finally up!

I'm a little disappointed - after all that work, I missed the hour mark by 32 seconds. :lol: :lol: Guess I could have gone in and pasted silence here and there if I really wanted. :wink:
