Hello, all. This is my first post on these forums - and I understand that this makes me generally more disposed to stepping on people’s feet, asking a dumb question, breaching etiquette, or embarrassing myself or others.
However, my first year of college has just ended, and I’m trying to avoid the “summer drain” by getting in a lot of reading in between working and enjoying the time off. I am hoping, with that, to find some good Catholic literature. The selection at my local library was so expansive and overwhelming that I figured it would make more sense to see what a community like this would recommend.
A little about myself - I am a fairly devout Catholic. I say fairly because ritual and “technicalities” mean very little to my religious life. However, I take faith very seriously.
Would anyone have any summer reading recommendations, with all of this in mind? I am hoping to accomplish two things with any Catholic literature I find:
-Deeper insight into the Catholic faith
-A means of rectifying some of the things about Church structure / tradition which tend rub me the wrong way
Thanks so much for any help you can offer.
