Source text (please read only from this text!): https://archive.org/details/ninetyninehomili00thomuoft/page/n4/mode/1upThe Homilies of the great "Angelical Doctor" are but outlines, the filling in of which are left to the preacher's own judgment and taste. It is because these outline Homilies are so very full of suggestive hints, and display such a very wonderful knowledge of Holy Scripture, that the experiment is made of presenting the Advent series to the reader in an English dress. The skeleton character of the original is preserved in the translation. (Summary by Notice in Preface)

Intro to recording:
Leave 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning.
End of recording:"Homily # of Ninety-nine Homilies. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information or to volunteer, please visit librivox.org." [Optional: "Read by your name."] "Ninety-nine Homilies of St. Thomas Aquinas upon the Epistles and Gospels, translated by John M. Ashley. Section Title."
- Don't read the homily number in the heading (eg: HOMILY VI.). Follow the MW intro, numbering and titles.
- Do read the heading eg: TENTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY. (FROM THE GOSPEL.) This should be the first thing you read in the body of the recording (after the section title).
- You can skip the Roman numerals (I, II etc.) which introduce the 'heads'. Just read the text as written. Eg: "On the third head etc."
- Ignore the ellipsis (...) and just read straight through.
- Read the numbers in brackets (1) (2) etc.
- S. is an abbreviation for 'saint'.
- I've tried my best to make the text links correct but if the title doesn't match, try flipping back or forward a page to find the right one.
If you are recording the final section of the book, add:"End of homily #." [Optional, and if not stated in the intro: "Read by your name, city, date."]
Leave 5 seconds of silence at the end."End of Ninety-nine Homilies of St. Thomas Aquinas upon the Epistles and Gospels, by Saint Thomas Aquinas, translated by John M. Ashley."
