Free Online Catholic Books!

Many classical books and other out-of-print books in the "public domain" are available for free online. These include older Catholic books.

You can read the Douay-Rheims Bible, the Catholic Encyclopedia (of 1910), the Summa Theologica of St. Thomas Aquinas (1920 translation), and much more at New Advent.

If you're looking for something for Lent, you can read The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ by Anna Catherine Emmerich or The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis.

One important book that is NOT "old", that is available online, is The Catechism of the Catholic Church. It is even searchable.
