I find myself collecting and reading a type of Catholic book I wasn't aware was available until recently. They are books which contain talks/retreats given to the papal household.

People get deceived and deceive others when they think that the Catholic Church doesn't begin with Jesus. This book is a collection of meditations presented to the pontifical household in the presence of Pope Benedict XVI.

This book offers some insightful and profound meditations on the person of Jesus Christ and the utmost importance of re-centering our faith in Jesus.

I definitely think this is a read I will return to and ponder again and again.
