There are many great writings from the saints. You can find many of the pope’s writings on the Vatican website.

Some of our favourite Saint writings include:

  • Story of a Soul - St Therese of Lisieux
  • Divine Mercy in My Soul - St Faustina
  • Interior Castle - St Teresa of Avila
  • Letters by Padre Pio
  • Confessions - St Augustine
  • Theology of the Body - St John Paul II
  • Dark Night of the Soul - St John of the Cross
  • Come be my light - Mother Teresa
  • True Devotion to Mary - St Louis de Montfort
  • Letters by St Gianna Beretta Molla
  • Essays on Women - St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
  • Letters by Saints Louis and Zelie Martin

Journal Question:

  1. Do I desire holiness?
  2. What can I do or change in my daily life that will allow me to be more focussed on being holy?
  3. What nets am I clinging on to in my life that keep me from God?
