Anyone reading anything particularly good right now?
I think I'm going to start "The Divine Crucible of Purgatory". I've read parts of it many times before but never the whole thing. It is one that I like to use for the beginnings of mental prayer sometimes.

I searched and that book looks very interesting, and sadly out of print. Is the author Mother Mary of St. Austin a Carmelite?

Quote:
Marvelous is the mercy of God to have provided sinners with a Purgatory – a place of purification in unchangeable eternity; a robing room for those whose wedding garments are earth-soiled; a period when God Himself, jealous for the beauty of His bride, finishes the life-work which the negligent soul has left undone.  “O, the depths of the riches of the wisdom and of the knowledge of God!  How incomprehensible are His judgments and how unsearchable His ways!...”
(The Divine Crucible of Purgatory, now out of print) 


I am slowly and meditatively reading "The Imitation of Christ", as well as A History of the Protestant Reformation in England and Ireland by William Cobbett, written in 1824-25. The latter is not really spiritual reading but it helps to-understand history, that's for sure.

Nice quote! I am not aware of the author being Carmelite but it's certainly possible. Yes, it is a very good book that I am lucky to have a copy of it. When I have the chance I'll put a few quotes or at least the poem from the front of the book on here so you can get a taste of it.

The Imitation of Christ is great! That is the book that got me throug college...really. The other book you are reading on the reformation sounds very interesting! Are you very far into it?
