Good Spiritual Reading

A list of helpful and spiritually rewarding reads

Below is a brief listing of what I have found to be good spiritual reading encompassing different areas of focus, prayer or study. Some works revolve around the saints, some about spiritual discernment, some on how to pray or focusing on a spiritual topic. I hope you will find this listing helpful as we all desire to grow in God’s grace and love as his disciples. I hope you find these helpful. Msgr Merdian
