Now that we’re a couple of weeks into Lent, I wanted to share how my plan of Lenten reading is going, and see what others are reading and finding helpful this Lent.
When I wrote at the beginning of the month that I hoped to pick up Introduction to the Devout Life as I often do during Lent, it was partially to stay accountable so I actually would. And so far, so good.
I am more than halfway through this great classic by St. Francis de Sales, and really enjoying it and finding new things in it.
Just one quick, fairly random quote to share:
From the Third Part of the Introduction, in a section entitled, “Propriety in Dress:” “For my part, I would have devout people, whether men or women, always the best dressed in a group but the least pompous and affected. As the proverb says, I would have them adorned with grace, decency, and dignity.”
I still hope to read Forget Not Love: The Passion of Maximilian Kolbe by Andre Frossard, that I’ve had for some time and have not yet read.
So how is your Lent going? What are you reading?
