As a blogger and podcaster (formerly radio show host), I am blessed to receive a plethora of good Catholic books to review. As an avid (ok, veracious) reader this incredible benefit courtesy from excellent Catholic Publishers and Authors has been one of my favorite social media evangelizing surprises! My "free books received for consideration of a fair and honest review" pile [consider this my legal disclaimer] has been growing as the Summer gets closer. Today, I have grabbed a few gems in hopes of inspiring your warm weather spiritual reading.
As a kid, my family always took the Summer off from Church. Despite the commandment to keep the Lord's Day or the Church's teaching that missing Mass is a grave sin. Jesus never takes a break from us, how sad that so many do not desire to repay that incredible fidelity with our own! The grace we foolishly discard that we so desperately need to navigate not only our relationship with God but just be a part of this crazy world!
In addition to making time to spend with Jesus in prayer, opening the Scriptures daily, and keeping my Sunday commitment to spend Sunday (or Saturday evening) with the Lord in the Eucharist, I will also keep my heart filled and my faith growing with good Spiritual Reading.
Here are a few of my recommendations for Summer 2017:
