Mailbag Question: What Are the Most Important Books to Read?

I'm going to break this up into tiers: Good Foundation. Intermediate Catholic. Advanced Catholic.

Good Foundation:

A Brief Catechism for Adults
The Latin Mass Explained
Western Europe in the Middle Ages, 300-1475
The Papacy: What the Pope Does and Why It Matters
The Messages of Our Lady of Knock (not a book, but a MUST read: you cannot understand modern history without understanding Church history. And Church history, and the real presence of the supernatural, is summed up in this series. It's a must read. Must. Read.)

Intermediate Catholic:

Jesus of Nazareth, 3 Book Set - Pope Benedict XVI 
Second Vatican Council: An Unwritten Story
Manual for Spiritual Warfare
Preparation for Death
True Devotion to Mary

Advanced Catholic

Don't feel overwhelmed at all that you don't know. If you are on this website, the Holy Ghost has (most likely) led you into the Catholic Church, so you are doing fine. Nobody is perfect. It took St. Augustine 12 years to shake off his habitual sins. And in the end, it will all be worth it.
