February was the month of starting and deciding against finishing books. There were several books that I began but ended up really not liking-one because it was poorly written, a second because whoever owned it before me must have been a smoker and I couldn't take the smell.
This amounted to a lot of wasted reading time. I have managed to finish a couple of smaller books this month.
Reading List for February 2010
The Way of the Cross for the Holy Souls in Purgatory (Revised) by Susan Tassone- I picked up this book at a local Catholic bookstore as an aid to my Lenten journey. I have been trying to be more conscientious about praying for the souls in Purgatory. I am very pleased with this book; not only does it outline the Stations of the Cross as an offering for the Holy Souls, but it also provides information about the origin of the practice of praying Stations as well as reflections from scripture and the saints.
The Rosary for the Holy Souls in Purgatory by Susan Tassone- I acquired this book at the same time I acquired my first reading selection and for the same reasons. This book provides a Scriptural Rosary for all 4 sets of mysteries as well as other Marian prayers. I was also quite pleased that this book offers instructions for praying the Rosary as now I can highly recommend it to beginners.
