Book plug!

Since I forgot to link the excerpt from today's consecration meditation, I must put in a plug for the book. Dietrich von Hildebrand's Transformation in Christ is a true spiritual classic. With meditations on self-knowledge, humility, patience, and all sorts of Christian virtues, the book a the perfect Lenten (or life) companion. My favorite part is actually the chapter on self-knowledge: he talks about false forms of knowing ourselves (such as self-worship) and the limitations of various psychological analyses of ourselves before really delving into what it means to know ourselves and be known in Christ.

Check it out.

Well, this is strange. I'm currently going through renewal of my consecration according to de Montfort and just began reading Transformation in Christ yesterday. :-)
