What spiritual reading are you taking up this Lent? What do you recommend to our readers?
I’m picking up again Present Tense: A Mennonite Spirituality by Gordon Houser, and A Time to Keep Silence by Patrick Leigh Fermor. Fermor recounts his travels to many European monasteries – St. Wandrille, Solesmes, Le Grande Trappe, rock monasteries in Cappadocia – but his topic is the meaning of silence and solitude for modern life.
Fr. Sebastian Moore, the well-known spiritual author of Downside Abbey, recently passed away at age 96. What of his works would anyone recommend – The Inner Loneliness, The Crucified Jesus Is No Stranger, Let This Mind Be In You, The Fire and the Rose Are One, Jesus the Liberator of Desires?
Blessed Lent to all of you.
