Letters From a Young Catholic

My reflections as a Catholic young adult passionate about the Faith, seeking to grow in knowledge and understanding of God and discerning the will of the Lord in my life.

I picked up and ordered some new books today. Yay!Called to Communion by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger
(a.k.a Pope Benedict XVI)
I've already read this book but I had borrowed it previously from a friend and now I actually need to own a copy (which isn't a bad thing) for my Church & Sacraments class this semester.

The heart of virtue: Lessons from life and literature illustrating the beauty and value of moral character by Donald Demarco
This book was recommended to me by a priest I know.

Pilgrim Fellowship of Faith: The Church as Communion by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (a.k.a. Pope Benedict XVI)
This is another book we're reading in Church & Sacraments this semester.

Orthodoxy by G.K. Chesterton
One of those books I've been meaning to read for a long time.

Deep Conversion / Deep Prayer by Fr. Thomas Dubay
A friend strongly recommended this book to me. I've read own several other books by Fr. Thomas Dubay that I've found both helpful and interesting.

Now I just need to turn on the gas fire place and curl up with a good book, a blanket, and a cup of tea.
