Thought I'd open a thread for folks to post Lenten reading material. I'll start with this one:

Meditations for Lent, by St. Thomas Aquinas (PDF file)
Given that the Mass is the Sacrifice of Calvary re-presented in an unbloody manner, and the Blessed Sacrament has been studied and found to be flesh belonging to a man in agony in Eucharistic miracles: Eucharistic Miracles by Joan Carroll Cruz

For these listed below, I have not read them, but they seem like solid Lenten reading.

The Spiritual Combat by Father Lorenzo (Lawrence) Scupoli

On the Passion of Jesus Christ by St. Alphonsus de Liguori

The Seven Dolours of the Blessed Virgin Mary by Fr. Sebastian of the Blessed Sacrament

The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ by Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich
audiobook (in a playlist, broken into parts):

The Seven Words Spoken on the Cross by St. Robert Bellarmine
I'll be working through Pius Parsch's Year of Grace Lent Volume:

Year of Grace

As well as Dom Gueranger's The Liturgical Year Vol V:

Vol 5. Lent

First week of Lent I also like to go through the first part of this book from Pope Benedict:

Journey to Easter: Spiritual Reflections for the Lenten Season
