Welcome to the Benedictine Oblates Website
Lent is upon us yet again. Some years ago, at Prinknash, it was the custom for Father Abbot to choose one particular book for each monk to read during Lent. An improving book of course. However I propose another scheme where someone else (me) recommends additional books which are entertaining as well as improving, for us all to while away the Lenten hours.
I have selected six of my favourite books. I remember the first time I read each of them and the great impact each had on me at the time. I reread them all on occasion and would like you to enjoy them
