I like to read. And since we do not have TV, I read and read and read. But even if we did have TV I'd still read. This year for Lent I was led to give up reading fiction. When the thought first entered my consciousness I dismissed it quickly. But it kept coming back and when I turned it round and studied it I realized I should do it and when I decided I felt peace.
Here's my list of what I plan on reading, probably in this order:
Blessed by Less by Susan V. Vogt
Evangelical Catholicism by George Weigel
Made for More by Curtis Martin
Proof of Heaven by Eben Alexander, M.D.
Ordinary Lives Extraordinary Mission by John R. Wood
The Catholic Vision for Leading like Jesus by Owen Phelps, Ph.D.
I will also finish reading The Joy of the Gospel by Pope Francis; Little Conversations with God, Catherine of Siena's Dialogue, and Contemplative Prayer by Franz Jalics
This last category is probably the most important one, prayer and meditation.
The Ignatian Workout for Lent by Tim Muldoon
A Book of Lenten Prayers by William G. Storey
Should be enough.
