Another Basket of Books for Lent

I have had a few requests for a peek inside that basket of lenten books for the older children that I mentioned the other day. I had hoped to put a post together a list of all our books but I just haven't had the time so here is what's in this year's basket along with the links to each book:

Our older children also have their own bibles (they love this one, see better pictures here, and this oneas well as their own copies of The Imitation of Christ (I love this version with the zippered cover).

In addition to Characters of the Passion: Lessons on Faith and Trust, I am reading through the chapter for March on Mortification from A Year with the Saints: A Virtue for Every Month of the Year. My husband has been reading a chapter from The Little Catechism of The Cure of Ars aloud during dinner each night.

I've also pulled out our  Catechism in Pictures, to review The Apostles Creed, and reading through The Holy Gospels of St. Luke and St. John from Sacred Art Series (pictured at the top of this post). Both are filled with gorgeous sacred artwork.

I need to wrap this up and head out the door... Lots of running around this afternoon. 
If you have a minute I would love to hear what you are reading this Lent!

  3. I am reading Maryam of Bethlehem "the little Arab" by Sister Emmanuel. I picked Maryam as my Saint for this year. She really followed the Holy Spirit and my lent I am trying to mortify my thoughts to think throughout the day of Jesus. Say I love Him throughout the day. Another wonderful book to read that I devoured in a few days was "My heart will triumph" by Mirjana Soldo. It is the testimony of one of the 6 visionaries in Medjugorje. I went on pilgrimage there twice last year and witnessed the miraculous healing of a young disabled man in a wheelchair named Darren. Here is his testimony on it # 234 and my testimony is # 239.
