As time permits we plan to add various readings from Christian classics and the Bible. To begin, here are some short daily readings to encourage anyone taking a two week trip to Europe:

Day: 1- 2 - 3 - 4 -5 - 6 -7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11 -12 - 13 - 14 -15

See the Catholic Sites: Augustine day by day and Tradition day by day
Or the Evangelical Sites: Oswald Chambers: My Utmost for His Highest
and Charles Spurgeon: Morning and Evening

There are also some Sermons of Martin Luther, Bible study notes from the Worldwide Study Bible,
devotional writings from the Church Fathers and the Expositor's Quote of the Week

Each section of daily readings for travelers consists of five parts. First, there is a short thought from St. Augustine (354-430) taken from John E. Rotelle O.S.A's., excellent Augustine Day by Day, (New York, Catholic Book Publishing, 1986). Permission to use these passages has been sought, although I believe what I have used falls within a "fair use" policy. Second, there is a short passage from Martin Luther (1483-1546), third a pithy saying is taken from Thomas á Kempis (1380-1471), finally, I provide a reflection from the works of Anglican Bishop J. C. Ryle (1816-1900) using either his Holiness (18??) or Practical Religion (1900). These thoughts are followed by a Bible reading and reflection on it. In time I hope to add further thoughts from the Church Fathers, Wesley, and various other Christian writers.
