We will finish "The Confessions of a Mega Church Pastor" this week and are planning to read "My Life With the Saints" next but it looks like it is sold out so......we may be reading "A Father Who Keeps His Promises" by Scott Hahn.

We also added Dion: The Wanderer Talks Truth - after we watched an interview with Dion on EWTN - it's a great book!

I actually met Matthew Kelly two years ago. He is a really nice guy and his book "The Rhythm of Life" is pretty good. He has some really good things to say. This summer i read "No Greater Love" by Mother Theresa. I just recently finished Fulton Sheen's "Way to Happiness." I read Timothy Gallagher's "The Discernment of Spirits", and Fr. Walter Ciszek SJ's "He Leadth Me." Now I am between books so I have going going back and forth with Chesterton's "St Francis of Assisi", Lorenzo Scupoli's "Spiritual Combat" , "Theology of the Body"- JPII, St Augustine's "Confessions" and Teresa of Avila's "Way of Perfection"... It depends on the day. I really should just pick one... It is tricky...

Not what I should have - when Joseph, my son, and I were in Washington DC recently we picked up a book by Father Mitch Pacwa that Joseph wanted - so we both need to do more spiritual reading!

Great topic - thanks. I want to read more Catholicism related books. For years my brother gifted me a subscription to Catholic Digest, and I loved it. For financial reasons, he can no longer extend my subscription, and I miss it. Being recently unemployed, it is a luxury I cannot afford and truly miss reading it.

5 thus far: " The Confessions of St. Augustine", "Fully Human, Fully Divine" by Michael Casey, "Jesus of Nazareth" by Pope Benedict XVI, "Theological Reflection" by Joye Gros, and Pray Always and Never Lose Heart" by Fr. Scott Seethaler. I am studying for the diaconate, and a book that was recommended is one I will begin soon is "The Holy Longing" by Ronald Rolheiser.

I do a lot of reading. Some recent books include Peter Kreeft's "Making Choices", "Witness to Hope", by George Weigel, Scott Hahn's "Understanding Scripture", also "Lambs Supper". I also subscribe to National Catholic Register newspaper and The Word Among Us, a magazine that includes daily scripture readings and meditations. Of course, daily Bible reading each a.m. before starting anything else.

I am leading a book study at my parish on "Rediscover Catholicism". I am also reading "Utopia" and "The Rhythm of Life". Our next book study will be on "The Confessions of a Mega Church Pastor". My goal is to read more Catholic books next year.

I have read parts of a few different books - usually in the chapel during Adoration. I have read other christian fiction books too. I picked up one on retreat by Fr. Mitch Pacwa and have not run across it in my unpacking - it was too hot for most of the summer to be out in the garage going through boxes. I need to get back to that!

Yes, I've read his book 'Rediscover Catholicism' this year and also a biography of Mother Teresa.
Every day I read her daily writings in 'The Joy in Loving', as well as the Mass readings for the day and a chapter of the Bible.

Have you ever heard of Matthew Kelly? He is definitely doing the Lord's work! He wants us to read something spiritual at least 15 minutes a day. If you have time visit his website or google him.
