Our Lenten Reading List

Every Lent, the Church calls all Catholics to grow closer to Christ through prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. To help you embark upon that walk this Lent, the staff of the St. Paul Center has compiled a list of some of our favorite Lenten reading, both old and new. Our prayer is that before Easter arrives, at least some of these books will be among your favorites as well.

What We're Reading Now: St. Bernard on Song of Songs

Posted by Dr. John Bergsma on 07.12.12

Lately I’ve been reading through St. Bernard’s four volumes of sermons on the Song of Songs.  I find it both spiritually edifying and historically interesting.
