Last Minute Reading



We have a book club in our home, once a month. It is great as my husband and I both get to go. It is after all, nice to do things together, and we don't even have to pay for a babysitter! We are currently reading Ralph Martin's The Fulfillment of All Desire, and I must say, so far, it really is quite an excellent book. It is perfect for a book club, and provides much material for discussion. The book is a guidebook for the spiritual life, based on the wisdom of the saints. Ralph Martin draws upon the insights of St Catherine of Siena, St Bernard of Clairvaux, St Teresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross, St. Augustine, St. Francis De Sales, and St. Therese of Lisieux, all Doctors of the Church. He really does make these spiritual giants accessible, and it is good to have them come together in one book. We only read a few chapters each month, but this month I am way behind schedule. So I must stop blogging, and go and read my book.

St Catherine of Siena, St Bernard of Clairvaux, St Teresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross, St. Augustine, St. Francis De Sales, and St. Therese of Lisieux, pray for us.
