Okay, so I am very curious about any spiritual reading you have planned for Lent!
Every year before Lent rolls around, I get so excited about picking a special book for the season -- which I never actually read. Sigh. For years, I intended to read What Jesus Saw From the Cross. Then, for a couple of years, I was going to read Holy Thursday. Both still sit on my shelf, unread.
So this year, I have a new strategy. I am going to read a book that I've already read and loved.
Years ago, when I was in the aftermath of learning all of this, I discovered the diary of an anonymous French priest who lived a hundred years ago, published in a little book called Descending Fire: The Journal of a Soul Aflame. While I read, I was completely swept up into the mystical and very real relationship between a sanctified soul and God. Oh my word, talk about a thrilling, fulfilling romance! Knowing the spiritual delight that I am in for, it will be easy for me to accomplish my Lenten reading this year. (Is that cheating?)
Okay, how about you? What will you be reading this Lent?
*Note, I promise I did not steal this idea from Jen at Conversion Diary!! :)
