My Lenten Reading

While searching through St. Blog's Parish Hall, I came across Monk?, which posted an interesting piece of information concerning the Benedictine Order. Specifically, Chapter 48 of the Rule of St. Benedict that requires the monk to receive a book from the library to read through during the days of Lent. The blogger posted a link to recommended books.

I, myself, am reading two books. The first, is "The Spiritual Vision of Pope Benedict XVI: Let God's Light Shine Forth", which is a book that includes various speeches and letters by Pope Benedict XVI. The book is entirely the Holy Father's thoughts, and I have enjoyed it immensely. I plan on posting excerpts and my general review of the book next week.

The second book is "The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ" by Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich. The book, however, is proving very difficult to read. I have passed the sections on author's life and the meditations. Tomorrow I will start reading Chapter 1 of Our Lord's Passion. Please join me in reading it online so that I may discuss it with someone else.
