What's on your book pile for Lent?? In addition to pulling out this oldie but goodie A Heart to Know Thee by Fr. E.J. Cuskelly (and a gift from the best Spiritual Director ever -- Deacon Jerry Ryan) .... I am also working my way through:
offered by Ave Maria Press
The Power of Daily Mass by Bert Ghezzi
I started it tonight in adoration ... and I will be blogging with it in more depth but so far I have come to three conclusions:
This is ONE of the most difficult disciplines God has called me too - ironic since this is the greatest GIFT He gives us!
There is still a great deal of self-centered; self-absorbed; and selfish tendencies that abound in me that need to be given their eviction notices!
What I know in my head - especially about the grace and power God spoils us in the Eucharist - has yet to penetrate into my heart. There are still MIGHTY snowdrifts blocking this fullness of the truth - that would have me standpeding to the Church door every morning to receive Jesus!!!
