A Question for the Board

..What is/are your favorite Faith Readings, especially, Catholic Related? The Bible? Catholic Novels? Local Misselette (sp?)?............

For me, it isn't so much Catholic Related but inspirational, the Chicken Soup Series. I am on Chicken Soup for the Mother's Soul, and I find this so very very inspirational, almost meditation like. I am also reading a Booklet written by the Archbishop of Los Angeles during the Jubilee Celebration called Gather Faithfully Together, Guide for Sunday Mass. I find this to be very intersting reading because it tells me how different areas in the Country celebrate Mass

I used to love Guideposts magazine, though I haven't gotten it in quite a while. I've read Bud McFarland's novels which are definitely food for thought. I get a morning email prayer every morning from FrPat.com. Most of my favorite catholic reading is online. catholic-pages.com, frpat, and most recently frgee.blogspot.com.

And then overall, my reading time is pretty limited!

Good question!

I also love the Chicken Soup series. I read Catholic Digest and Marriage magazine fairly regularly and am occassionally inspired by it. The most inspiring Catholic thing I read on a regular basis is a column written by Elizabeth Foss which appears in our diocesan paper. I also understand she has a book out so I'm going to have to look for it. She's a Catholic homeschooling mom of 7 (?) and has a great perspective on life. I've also recently read a Catholic pamphlet called "12 Steps to Serenity", it has some really great ideas in it for reducing stress and finding more peace day to day.

The Salesian Missions sends out small books that I still receive, even after my contributions. Also the Book of Romans tends to be more specific to the Catholicism in readings & scripture. Does anyone agree? By referring to the Catholic Bible can be even more directly correlated, perhaps.

The verse I am thinking of is in Romans 13, "Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities..." Romans 10 says "That if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him ... you will be saved." Not that these can be other religions, too.

Sorry I haven't dropped in lately! My mind's so easily drifted~thinking other things!

Help this helped!
