The list of books and links below is to provide more information to the curious about the “journey home” It is not a to buy list to gift. I find that in our journey to Jesus, the need to draw nearer is personal and intimate. Being given a book by the “other” no matter how well intended it may be, only creates a negative impact rather than a positive one.

Books I am reading at the moment.

I’ll add to this list, but for now, these are books I’ve finished reading or am reading.

The Diary of Saint Maria Faustina

A moving and beautiful expression of God’s Divine Mercy

OnLine resources has daily readings that will help you follow the Catholic Mass online. Mine are sent to me via email. The reading list includes Reading 1, the Responsorial Psalm, the Alleluia and the Gospel. Reading this before the Catholic Mass will give you insight into God’s word. The one element I love about the Catholic faith, is that all readings are the same world wide…it does not matter what part of the world you are in, all Catholics are all united in the same reading, teaching and Holy inspiration.

Online Masses I like to watch:

Today, I watch the daily Catholic Mass of my Parish. They stream daily every morning at 9:00 am. Before I found my Parish, I watched online. Divine Mercy out of the U.S. was one of my favorite: If you check their daily watch list, they have reoccurring series on “Explaining the Faith Series”:

The Laudate Apps is available for both android and iOS: This little tool is also handy as it gives you all the options to participate online along with all the necessary readings of the day. It also has the Catechism Compendium in different versions, if you don’t want to order the actual book like I did.

Amen App

For iOS and Android:

The Amen app is the free Catholic prayer app that inspires your daily conversation with God through faithful meditations and nourishing Scripture. I love this app, I often pray from it during my morning or evening devotional hour.

Hallow App

I can’t seem to link their site, but just google Hallow Catholic App.
