books from the shrine
While visiting VA, I was privileged enough to spend time with friends in DC. And, on Wednesday, I went to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Yes, by myself, I toured.
The day was gorgeous - sunny and warm!
And, as we all know, I am a Dominican at heart - I study to Love and Love to study!
The Shrine has a fantastic bookstore - all material is TRULY Catholic, so double plus!
Here are the books I picked up: (all links are for Amazon.com if you can't get out there locally)
If Your Mind Wanders At Mass - Thomas Howard
To Save A Thousand Souls: A Guide for Discerning a Vocation to Diocesan Priesthood - Fr. Brett A Brannen
The Restless Flame: A Novel about Saint Augustine - Louis de Wohl
Five Loaves and Two Fish - Francis Xavier Nguyen Van Thuan
Hungry Souls: Supernatural Visits, Messages, and Warnings from Purgatory - Gerard JM Van Den Aardweg
