Well I decided to go really light and ordered a copy of Lent and Easter Wisdom From Fulton J. Sheen and I also ordered a copy of Magnificat's Lenten Devotional. I also found a copy of Living the Mysteries A Guide for Unfinished Christians that I received for Christmas but did not read. I figure maybe a chapter a day from that too.

Jeff Vista | 2 comments I ordered The Gargoyle Code, by Fr. Dwight Longenecker--should hopefully arrive in time. Five-star reviews on Amazon (although it's much cheaper to order directly from Fr. Longenecker's website), saying it's the perfect book for Lent.

Maria (lilmysninja) | 2 comments I pulled three choices and can't decide which one!

1. Understanding the Sacraments, A Guide for Prayer & Study from Ignatius
2. We Pray, Living in God's Presence by Oscar Lukefahr, C.M.
3. The Temperament God Gave You by Art & Laraine Bennett

I'm leaning towards either We Pray or Understanding the Sacraments. I think I'd benefit from Understanding the Sacraments since I'm a cradle catholic recently returned in the past few years. There is still much that I need to learn!

I think you've got your answer then. :)

Along with Abandonment To Divine Providence which I noted above, I also picked up a copy of The Gargoyle Code. This one is VERY light reading in the style of the The Screwtape Letters. Funny, yet eye opening, and specifically themed for Lent.

You are right sir! :) I made my decision about 10 minutes after I posted!

Susan Craycraft | 1 comments I am reading Discerning the Will of God by Timothy Gallagher. I have always been interested in the subject of discernment- so far it's pretty good.

Paul Dunbar | 1 comments thidls year i decided on "Story of a Soul" by Therese de Lisieux. not sure how it's going to fit with a penetential theme, but I've decided that learning about her would be important.

Jeff Vista | 2 comments I am reading Surrender! The Life Changing Power of Doing God's Will. If you've read Be a Man!: Becoming the Man God Created You to Be, Surrender is somewhat repetitive...but I think it's still very much worth the read.

Carina (beloved121) | 3 comments I am reading The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. The language is a bit tedious to deal with but the letters are quite thought provoking.

I'm actually reading The Gargoyle Code which is similar to what Carina is reading. It is a contemporaneity twist on The Screwtape Letters. It is structured as a Lenten read and I'm really enjoying, not only the comedy but also the thought-provoking message.
