Victory Over Vice

by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. This is an excellent book in which Archbishop Sheen covers the seven deadly sins (pride, covetousness, lust, anger, gluttony, envy, and sloth). He demonstrates how Christ made atonement for each of these vices during his life and gives advice on how to overcome them. I would highly recommend it for any Catholic young man or woman.

The Catholic Girl's Guide

edited by Father F. X. Lasance. This is an excellent book which every Catholic girl should own. The advice imparted to the reader is so useful and relevant today, even though it was first published in the forties or fifties. It is available here and would make a great birthday, graduation, Christmas, or Confirmation gift for any girl around twelve or so and above.
It is the best gift I have ever received! Thank you so much, Mrs. B!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everybody! I hope everyone will have a blessed 2015.

Has it really been over two years since I last posted?!? I plan to post more, since I've read so many good books and would really like to write about and recommend them. I'll start by posting about the best gift I ever received.
