Book meme

I’ve been tagged for a book Meme by Therese at AUSSIE COFFEE SHOP

this one looks like fun.

1. One book that changed your life: “Confessions” of St. Augustine.

2. One book that you’ve read more than once: “Divine Intimacy” (3x, starting 4) and “This Tremendous Lover” (4x).

3. One book you’d want on a desert island: Ouch... that’s a hard one. How about an HP Notebook computer with a satellite internet connection so I can read all of them?

4. One book that made you laugh: OCP Music Issue.

5. One book that made you cry: “John Paul II” by Ray Flynn

6. One book that you wish had been written: The story of (Anglican) Bishop Festo of Uganda and his confrontations with Idi Amin during the dark time that lovely country suffered under his reign of terror.

7. One book that you wish had never been written: The one written prior to the French Revolution by the Jesuit on the Illuminati (I don’t remember the title or the author; Anita has the book with the reference), which has been the basis for the methodology of successful attacks on the Church for centuries.

8. One book you’re currently reading: “The Battle for the American Church”

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read: There is a book I started that I’ve been meaning to finish; Etienne Gilson’s “The Philosophy of Thomas Aquinas” – no easy read by still fascinating.

That done, I'd like to tag Anita at V-For Victory and Bill at Is My Phylactery Showing?.

Since the Pope referenced a book by title in Spe Salvi, and the author's works in English are titled different, I ordered two books by Francis Xavier Nguyen Van Thuan:

Testimony of Hope: The Spiritual Exercises of Pope John Paul II
The Road of Hope: A Gospel from Prison
