The CSC library…

June 5, 2010 § 2 Comments

seems quite underutilised!

But they have quite a number of books–

Most of Henri Nouwen’s works, Fulton Sheen’s Life of Christ, Confessions by St. Augustine, St. John’s Dark Night, Navarre bible commentary of all the Gospels and Acts, collected works of St Teresa of Avila, one or two books by C.S.Lewis…

I also managed to get hold of a book on Ignatian Spirituality (Examen) by Timothy M. Gallagher. There was a book on discernment and another on spiritual consolations, but I could only borrow 3 books in all, and besides, I don’t think I can take in so many at a go.  

They didn’t seem to have many books written by the popes though. There were a few by Pope John Paul (like Crossing the Threshold of Hope) but I was expecting more by Pope Benedict. Also, I was looking for the book ‘Love and Responsibility’ by Pope John Paul II.

Hoho, now let me introduce my library! You may feel free to borrow some books, since I cannot read all of them in one go.
