I have just finished reading St. Therese Lisieux’s, Story of a Soul, on recommendation and I loved it. I hope it changes my life.
I am not a mystic, and find the mystics very difficult to relate to; I am still learning how to pray as I ought. On the other hand, I read St. Thomas Aquinas all day for my academic work, and would prefer something more spiritual but not too obvious or simplistic.
The habit of having spiritual reading dedicated solely for my time with the Lord, has been a very fruitful exercise and I would like to continue with my “chapel reading”-- perhaps spiritual classics or lives of saints that are conducive to adoration and prayer.
I would appreciate any suggestions you may have.
