Must Own Books for the Catholic Home

This blog post was written in collaboration with my followers, and together we have compiled the most supreme booklist that every Catholic household should own. You will certainly want to bookmark this post for later as you stock your Amazon carts and peruse your local book shops. From liturgy, to saints, to spirituality, this list has all of the essentials. If we missed one, I warmly welcome you to leave a comment so that other viewers can see your recommendations too.

No more dilly-dallying, let's get to the books. Keep in mind this would be in addition to the two obvious must-haves, the Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

Always keep the holy book in your hands, that it may nourish your soul by devout reading. -St. Jerome
