Well, not exactly, but this article from Vatican Radio does relate how the Holy Father "recommends summer reading for the faithful." Many thanks to my husband for alerting me to this nice little article (and indirect endorsement from the Holy Father for reading good books, the main reason for this blog).
What I loved in the Holy Father's endorsement of reading good books was his suggestion to pick a book of the Bible to read through during the summer for reflection and spiritual enrichment.
I've decided to choose Ecclesiastes, one of the ones specifically suggested. Care to join me, and share what you discover new in reading Scripture along with your regular reading?
