Book Recommendations for Lent

This is a video of Sr. Julia of the Daughters of St. Paul, who is recommending books 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.

I also must suggest a reading program I found that is set up so that participants, after the 40 days of Lent, will have read 10 Church Father's writings. See their site for more information (pdf).

In addition to the books mentioned, here is my list of recommendations. I would appreciate any suggestions to add to this list:

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.
