Being unmarried I have more time than most people for spiritual reading, and I don't do as much as I should. It usually takes me a couple of weeks to transition into the Lenten spirit, so instead of strictly Lenten reading I started this year with The Life and Glories of St. Joseph
I'm reading The Mass: A Study of the Roman Liturgy by Fortescue. I started it a long time ago and now I'm about half way through and I'm realizing how many things I did not understand about the history of our liturgy. I think it is great to be humbled and realize how many ignorant assertions I've made so I'm enjoying it.
The other book I'm reading is Spiritual Conferences by Faber. I am amazed at the relevance of his writings even 200 years later. I think I've really enjoyed the shorter length of each topic so I can have time to digest each subject without getting discouraged trying to read an entire book on one topic. I mean, I can do that, but it doesn't happen often.
Spiritual Conferences by Fr. Faber is tremendous, and the book of his I would recommend to someone who wants to try one of his books.
1. Kindness 2. On Death 3. Self-Deceit 4. Why so Little Comes of Frequent Confession 5. Weariness in Well-Doing 6. Wounded Feelings 7. Confidence the Only Worship 8. On Taking Scandal 9.

Marya Dabrowski: I'm going to try to have the kids put out their shoes tonight; first time ever!

Clotilde: We got a new St. Nicholas statue and I was very pleased with the quality! I buy gold coins at Aldis for the shoes and usually they get new clothes or some PJs. We went to DL for the feast.

Marya Dabrowski: Gold coins are a good idea. My kids only got gum or tic-tacs or a couple pieces of chocolate. I wish the toddler would have not been one of the first ones up to keep digging through everyone's shoes.
