MUST HAVE books for Catholics
Here is a list of books that ALL Catholics ought to own, be familiar with and use regularly. A copy of each should exist in every Catholic household:

A Catholic translation of the Bible
A Sunday missal with readings
A weekday missal with readings
A one-volume Divine Office includes a complete morning and evening prayer
(The four volume set for the really hard core among you)

The Documents of the Second Vatican Council
The Catechism of the Catholic Church
The Code of Canon Law
A comprehensive, historically responsible lives of the saints.

I feel a STRONG compulsion to add The Lord of the Rings, (I'm beginning to feel like Dr. Strangelove.)

Note how much of this is available on line! So, if you are reading this, you practically have the whole library at your fingertips.

Am I missing anything? Comments, anyone? Or anytwo?
