Programs created by Father Richard Lonsdale in 2002. On his Web site which no longer exists since his death, he posted the following notice: We invite you to download and freely distribute these programs for any non-profit use. They may be included in freeware or shareware collections as long as no charge is made for the programs themselves.

Schools and parishes may freely use them and give them to parishioners or students or engaged couples.

If you have a CD burner you can make them run automatically by including the special autorun file (a different one for each program) in the route directory of the CD along with the program itself.
