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.

Exodus 22:20-26
