  1. Al,

    Wonderful show yesterday. Can't wait to read all the books. By the way, is there going to be an Excel file that we can download the entire list from?

  2. Thanks for posting the summer reading list but unfortunately I don't see the book listed that I recommended when I called in: Mystical City of God. It's available on Amazon and other places in the original 4-volume set or abridged version. It's a lot of reading but I can't put it down. It is private revelation but it has the Imprimatur and has been recommended by several popes. It's an amazing revelation by our Holy Mother to Venerable Sister Mary of Jesus of Agreda. It's largely unknown in the USA but it answers many questions that many people ask. It was a favorite of Venerable Father Solanus Casey of Detroit. This is the only book mentioned on your show that is not on the reading list. I think that Satan doesn't want people to read it!
