Thought I’d start a thread to see what we’re all reading, or maybe inspire us to read. I’ve a big list prepared for Part of my plan for this year is to read no fiction, only catholic books. So, what’s the story with you, do you read much, and if so, what’s on your kindle at the moment? TorrentumJan 6, Clare A and Indy like this. I’m trying to read all the bible this year but it will probably take me more than a year. I am following this 1 yr program.
I admit I need to get off the internet and read more. Reading spiritual and religious books is so important to kindling the faith.
IndyJan 6, Clare A likes this. Ya, Confessions seems like a must read for all of us I have it and need to pick it up soon. Great list of books on readguidw04 thread from a year ago: I find reading hard going mostly, apart from the bible, but friends say I read people fairly well Border collieJan 7, The church of mercyPope Francis and the interior castlest Theresa of Avila.
I just started Interior Castle again after not making it through several years ago. I think I am more “ready” now for what it entails.

Week 1 | Read the Catholic Bible in a Year
It must be a good book Padraig, you survived the camping trip. IndyJan 7, I am not much of a reader. I really only read here and try to keep up with Mark Mallett. That’s orgg I have time for.
But Consoling the Heart of Jesus by Fr. MIchael Gaitely is on my chnetwori, as my first read when things slow down. So, after Gaitely I’d like to read the 3 books she has written on the life of Jesus I will drink in every word of those books. PotatoSackJan 8, She kept a diary. Nothing prophetic, just a beautiful work about the love of Jesus and how He works in our hearts. I first heard about this book from Pelianito’s blog. Like all private revelation, nothing new or added, but confirmation of the Heart of Our God.
LifesongTeadguide04 8, Andy3Jan 8, Jeanne and Lifesong like this. It is quite long and I pick it up from time to time where I left off. I read a chapter last night and was quite confused over something so maybe you all can help me. The chapter was about the death of Mary’s parents while she was in the temple.
What are you currently reading? | Mother of God
In this book as a child, Mary always saw and interacted with the 1, of angels that were assigned to surround her at all times to protect her from birth. She prayed to God to send all her angels to her father on his deathbed and to reveal themselves to him. They obliged and went to Joachim. He saw them and they revealed to him on his deathbed the true nature and plan for Mary to be the Mother of God. Cnetwork did not know this yet but it was a great grace for Joachim to help in the pains of his own death to be filled with this great knowledge and joy.
This came at a cost to Mary though. From this point on she was not able to see them again and hear them and interact. She did not know this and thought she had offended God since she no longer saw the angels or heard from God. So here is where I am chnetwrok.
We hear all the time in our Catholic faith that when the angel Gabriel came to Mary to reveal God’s plan, he said what is translated into English, “Hail, full of Grace”.
Mary was quite alarmed by this greeting reacguide04 a very well versed and educated person from scripture. This would have alarmed her because this type of greeting would have had her name after the Hail typically in scripture and not the “full of Grace”.
Tim Staples book, “Behold Your Mother” really digs deep into this as why this greeting was so important. So my confusion is whether Mary was just alarmed by this greeting and puzzled by it or was she alarmed also by the fact of an angel of the Lord appearing to her with this greeting.
Christians, why have you never read the entire Bible, cover to cover?
Surely, she was not alarmed at seeing an angel since she readguidee04 thousands of them most of her young life. JonJan 8, Andree, in regard to Luisa Piccarreta’s works, I would start with Volume 12 which an be found at the catholicdivinewill.
These writings and programs have been such a blessing for us – a daily spiritual retreat! He also has a number of introductory audio programs posted at this site. LeoJan 8, Jeanne and andree like this. Thank you Leo for those website, I’ve finally got some time to read the books. However, I can’t see where to buy a book version on those websites?
What book version do you recommend? With a message like that, he would have looked indescribably magnificent, perhaps more than any angel Mary had ever seen before so she was going to wonder what exactly he was going to say to her. It is a most beautiful book and a little less daunting xhnetwork the very long works which require a lot of persistence!
