I thought it would be helpful to keep a running list of every resource I come across (books, links, sites, recordings, study guides, you name it!). I will do my best to bucket by theme/type but this will be fairly organic at the outset until a process emerges. I don’t even know if this is everything. I included what I could remember.
Please share in the comments any resources you think other pilgrims could benefit from. We’re all just trying to be saints. Why not help each other along? Links will be added shortly!
