UI have a friend who says she doesn’t believe in organized religion. I took her to a TLM last Sunday and she was very impressed. She asked if she could take the pew Missal home with her. I told her I’d be happy to get one for her. She looked at the free material and took what was available. My question is besides the pew Missal does anyone have suggestions for material I can pass on? She wouldn’t be interested in apologetics but would respond to introductory stuff about the beauty and mystery of the Faith. Thank you for any suggestions. Btw she was raised evangelical but it never “stuck “
Rome Sweet Home by Scott and Kimberly Hahn is a good book that is easy to read, not overly apologetic but is full of solid reason (and their own personal stories) as to why the Church is the one and only church founded by Jesus. Many of his books are very good especially for those looking to understand more about the faith and coming from a Protestant background.
You might also have her install Laudate if she wants a Missal. It is a free phone app that includes both the LR and NO masses and readings for each day. Peace.

Why did it take almost two full days for that? I looked at this thread early yesterday and missed the blooming obvious, came back and saw this and almost slammed my head into my desk. Vox should kill us all.

Thank you all. Yes, I agree the site is an incredible treasure trove. However, she would not be interested in apologetics or theology. If she is going to follow up on anything it will be from the aesthetic, contemplative nature of the Mass.
C.S. Lewis Mere Christianity is a good toe in the ocean of Christianity. Also, I hate to say it, but Bishop Barrons Catholicism is also very good for anyone who doesn't know anything about Christianity.

Seeing as she's said nothing yet, I'd keep one eye open at night, just in case a ninja attack cat was sent out to take us out ...

If you even think you see this cat, (don't let the pouting beady eyes fool you) RUN! :

This is one of the rare times I won't snip a picture from a quote (wouldn't want to insult The Cat, you know. I also back out of rooms when in her presence).

Anyway, Marta (The Cat) wishes to remind everyone that felines have built-in switchblades. Ten of 'em. SNIK!

As you were...
