Catholic Reading Lately

I am on a minor reading binge. I just finished Parish Priest, Father Michael McGivney and American Catholicism. An excellent book though a bit short. It is an interesting look at the Church in America in the last half of the nineteenth century. I am inspired to read more about the history of the Church in our country its history of anti-catholicism.

My Life with the Saints is another great book. Loaded with funny and thought provoking material, it forces one to examine ones own life. The book has value for all, Catholics and other Christians.

I am about halfway through a biography of John XXIII and plan to read his journal next. What a great pope. Read Pacem in Terris.
