Does anybody here do / verse mapping / inductive studies?

I ordered two Catholic books today, from the "Catholic truth Society" today: the Little Prayer Book, and the Latin Mass in English and Latin. I'll post pics when they arrive. It's kind of funny and ironic. My grandad supported the "Protestant Truth Society". I suspect he would be horrified.

I use a Canterbury Church Book and Desk Diary which includes daily readings, collects and details of saints days. I was surprised to note isn't listed.

Obviously, in this story there was a plan and a purpose and it all worked out for good.

I'm now increasingly liberal but love set prayer and liturgy.

I have other, less religious accounts on other instances, but I thought I would join here to chat about the spiritual life. — a friendly social networking space for those with an interest in Catholicism.
