I have difficulty getting past the intellectual hurdles and roadblocks associated with our faith. These issues (Luther, comparative religions, atheism, Islam, miracles, Marian apparitions…on and on), seem to take up all of the time I dedicate to my faith. I spend all my time proving to myself, Gods existence and the truth of Catholicism. Very little if any of my time seems to be directed toward prayer and simply praising and loving God.
It was suggested to me that to help enhance my faith I could read a few pages every day about, or by, a Saint.
Sounds like a good suggestion.
Some time ago I have read Story of a Soul, Confessions, Imitiation of Christ.
Can anyone suggest, from thier past experience, a book written by a Saint that may help me grow closer to the God I spend all my time trying to justify to myself?
