Spiritual Reading Advice

In 07 Observation on 2012/01/17 at 9:25 AM

Composite of advice from various saints: Read slowly, with attention and recollection; stopping to consider,  ruminate and think about the truths that affect you most intimately. Calmly, apply your intelligence to understanding. When a passage is particularly moving, pause to consider it more deeply with the Lord. Life is too short. Be content with re-reading books that lead you closer to God and do not waste your time on worthless and unprofitable selections.
