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.

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.

wonderer: seeking info on Father Christopher Ray Angel? We are looking for a new priest, he will be visiting us soon, Maybe ordained by Bishop Taylor, but cannot find info on internet. Also, Bishop Taylor--any info/ valid or not? thanks

Pacelli: I looked into Taylor years ago, and I am not convinced about the validity of his line,, so I do not advise anyone to go to those who received orders through his line.

carloscamejo: Some prelates seem to let anyone be "consecrated" a bishop, it seems. If one had made up that they went to med school and presented themselves as a doctor, no sane person would allow you to toy with someone's physical health like that.
