“(Summer) Reading indeed has made many saints”

I hope that the summer break has started well for all of our GW Catholics! Each one of you should be doing some spiritual reading this summer; 5-10 minutes a day, at least. Sacred Scripture is most preferred; reading a chapter of one of the Gospels each day might work well for you. In addition, below are some suggestions for your summer reading which are either new books or classics. If bloggers have any other ideas, please leave a comment with them. Have a safe, fun, and faithful summer!

I'm trying to work on Jesus of Nazareth Part I, but I've only gotten through the foreword so far. I hear it's good, but it already seems like it's going to be dense.
