Plenty of Good Reading for Lent at Your Fingertips

Folks, I am mirror-imaging the table of contents of  Saints' Books for your edification and sanctification. To download a book please right click on the link and choose the option to 'Save Link As' or 'Save Target As' then choose the folder on your computer, normally the desktop, where you wish to have the downloaded book for future reading. Please refrain from downloading more than one book at a time, but download as many books total as you please. If you have difficulties downloading there is a troubleshooting guide. The books are provided free of charge. Please consider making a donation, here.

I haven’t read all these works, by the way, but I’m more likely to agree with the works of saints or of popes and bishops. The rest may represent the individual theological opinions of the authors, in whole or in part, with which I may agree or not – in whole or in part.
