Advent Spiritual Reading

Advent begins on Sunday!

In addition to the Daily Dose that will be offered here, I wanted to pass along a few titles I'd recommend for spiritual reading this Advent.

The first is the third and final volume of Pope Benedict's XVI seminal work called Jesus of Nazareth.  The third volume focuses in on the nativity accounts found in the Gospels of Luke and Matthew- very timely for Advent.

Edward Sri has a new book out that offers the biblical basis for everything that we do in the Mass. This is a great book and an easy read. If you want to deepen your understanding, appreciation and participation in the Mass, I highly recommend this little gem.

And finally, I found this little gem via a Catholic magazine I subscribe to.  This is a great book that contains short meditations on everything from the nature of God, to prayer, Scripture, and virtue.  The meditations are designed to foster prayer and lead one deeper into the mystery of God and faith. The meditations are very short and this would be a great "page-a-day' kind of book.

So, there are some ideas. If I run across anything else, I'll pass it on.

Peace and prayers for you today.
