Book Recommendations for Lent

With Lent only three weeks away, it's time to start thinking about Lent. Not only should we fast, abstain, and give up something during Lent, but also we should do spiritual reading. The Rule of St. Benedict stipulated that monks must actually read one spiritual book during Lent. We could find great benefit in imitating their example.

I would like to suggest a reading program where will have read 10 Church Father's writings over teh course of Lent. See their site for more information (pdf).

Here are some Lenten Book Recommendations:

Good post. I had never thought of reading a special book during Lent. I'm going to come back to this and order something soon.

The only book I can think of is some kind of exposition of the Via Crucis.

Meditations for Lent from St. Thomas Aquinas is very good, too.
