Holy Moments – Matthew Kelly – Short, practical read for anyone who is looking for more meaning, how to tune in to God’s voice and be open to His will for us.
A Biblical Walk through the Mass – Edward Sri – Dr. Sri explains the Mass.in great detail and in an easy to understand way. He explains the meaning behind the words, gestures and rituals and also how the Mass transcends time and space to make present to us the life, death and resurrection of Christ. And of course he gives us the Biblical roots of it all. I have read it 3 times and am sure I will read it again. I recommend it because it will change the way you worship! – Glenna
This Present Paradise – Claire Dwyer – The author’s personal reflections alongside the writings and biography of St. Elizabeth of the Trinity bring this saint to life and relevant to our daily spiritual life. Short chapters with reflection questions at the end of each one.
Rescued: The Unexpected and Extraordinary News of the Gospel – Fr. John Riccardo – All of the content of the Rescue Project in writing! Meet Jesus as you have not before, the warrior who fought for us and who asks us to fight for others.
Left to Tell – Immaculée Ilibagiza – An autobiography from the Rwandan genocide (definitely a heavier read) about how one extraordinary young woman found the courage to forgive the men who murdered her entire family through the rosary, scripture, and prayer. An amazing read, especially for anyone whose life has been touched by fear, suffering, or loss.
The Story of a Soul – St Therese of Lisieux- This book details Therese’s short, yet impactful life and journey into the convent. It gives an in-depth look into her Little Way Spirituality and writes in a way that is both accessible to the new convert and rich for the seasoned Catholic!
Be Healed – Bob Schuchts – A book centered around spiritual, emotional, and physical healing. Dr Schuchts pulls from his extensive knowledge of Catholic therapy to address how to heal emotional wounds from lies or inner vows. I loved how simple and straightforward this book was in practical application!
The Spiritual Gifts Handbook – Randy Clark and Mary Healy – Dr. Mary Healy, a Catholic scholar, and Randy Clark, founder of a healing ministry, team up to discuss the charismatic gifts of the spirit. They use personal experience as well as drawing on Scripture and tradition. I thought this was a great way to introduce charismatic spirituality in the Catholic context!
