I have partnered with the wonderful folks at Select International Tours to put together a fantastic pilgrimage itinerary that is guaranteed to edify and inspire you!
Expert guides will take you through the beautiful cities of Madrid, Segovia, Avila, Santiago de Compostela, Toledo, Leon, Burgos, Zaragoza, Montserrat, and Barcelona, where you can pray at the most famous Cathedral and Shrines, taste authentic Spanish cuisine, and learn about the country’s most revered saints and mystics, including St. Teresa of Avila on the occasion of her historic 5th Centenary Jubilee!

St. Thomas Aquinas famously warned “Beware the man of one book”. While his words are typically quoted today as a criticism of the person whose mental horizons are limited to one book. In context, however, he meant that a person who has thoroughly mastered one good book can be quite formidable as an intellectual opponent or adversary.
It is clear that the Angelic Doctor was not advocating that we limit ourselves to reading just one book in our lives. What he was seeking to underscore is the importance of smart or intelligent reading. While we should be encouraged to read as much as possible, in the end, it matters little how many books we read, but how much we are able to retain and glean from our reading them.
What if there was a way to dramatically increase not only how many books we read, but also our ability to absorb and remember what we read? Well, I have good news for you! There is a way!
Catholic author and fellow bibliophile, Brandon Vogt has just launched Read More Books Now, an exiting free online course intended to help equip others who are interested in reading more books to do so more intelligently. I have reviewed the entire course myself and can attest to its immense value. In it, Brandon shares his great love of books and offers very practical recommendations and easy-to-implement strategies for becoming a more voracious and intelligent reader. Anyone who takes this course will benefit greatly from the advice offered.
Don’t just take my word for it. Here is what one renowned author and Catholic philosopher had to say about it:
Now that I’ve piqued your curiosity, I would encourage you to see for yourself. You can access this excellent course for FREE by clicking here.
Happy reading, my friends!
