Catholic Girl's Guide
Catholic Girl's Guide
by Fr. Francis Xavier Lasance

Reprinted from the 1906 edition.. This is a wonderful guide for Catholic young women; filled with many counsels and devotions.

It addresses many of the issues which face girls in their adolescent years. After admonishing the young lady to be a 'child of Mary,' Fr. Lasance builds a 'Maiden's Wreath' combining catechism and virtues with an appropriate flower (lily, rose, etc.). Should the religious state or married life be followed? Chapters discuss both alternatives with an additional section on family life. Extensive traditional devotions (novenas, prayers, etc.) end the book, which also contains detailed information about the Sodality of Mary. A classic, as is the Young Man's Guide.

Thoughts on the Religious Life

Thoughts on the Religious Life
With an Appendix of Maxims and Counsels of Saints and Spiritual Writers
by Fr Francis Xavier Lasance

The virtues are treated clearly and practically, and in a manner that incites the soul to their exercise. We cherish the hope and pray that this book may fall into the hands of many, and, by the grace of God, be instrumental in rousing some from spiritual torpidity due to the blandishments of the world; in opening their eyes to the grandeur of that enclosed garden of the Lord, where the fairest flowers of virtue - above all, the rose of charity - bloom in unsurpassed abundance and splendour of development; and in attracting them to that school of sanctity, where, as St. Bernard says, “Men lead a purer life, fall into sin less frequently, rise again more easily, walk more cautiously, rest more tranquilly, die more happily, and reap a richer reward for eternity.”

Meditations and Considerations for the Monthly Recollection and the Annual Retreat.
Together with A Prayer-Book for All Ordinary Needs.

It is a book of mental and vocal prayer intended for men and women who take a serious view of life; who are convinced that real and enduring happiness is found in holiness; whose love for Our Lord Jesus Christ is such that they desire to do more than merely to refrain from displeasing Him whose aim is to reproduce in themselves the virtues of our divine Master and Model.

The second part is a Book of Prayer; that is to say, a prayer-book which is suitable to all states of life for all ordinary occasions of devotion.

Holiness and Happiness
Thoughts of Many Hearts Together with Reflections on the Life and Virtues of St. Teresa of the Child Jesus Besides Mass and Novena Prayers in Honour of the Little Flower and Communion Devotions
Compiled and Edited by Fr Francis Xavier Lasance

Our habitual thoughts make us what we are. As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. Sooner or later a man’s habitual thoughts come out in his life and character. What his thoughts are determines what he will become.

The sayings of saints, and of wise and holy men and women, if read day by day, with prayerful reflection, will cheer us and sustain us in the conflicts with the enemies of our salvation, will help us to do what is right, to press onward and upward, valiantly and persistently toward the goal of perfection.

Road to happiness

Road to happiness
Thoughts on The Way of Salvation, The Last Things, The Following of Christ, The Imitation of the Saints, The Patronage of the Angels, and The Eight Beatitudes.
by Fr Francis Xavier Lasance

This book wants to make you remember the things that tend to your peace and happiness, the things that count for eternity; it wants to be your friendly mentor in the storm and stress of life, if you will have the grace to accept it as such, to the end that, by prayerfully meditating on the subjects proposed for your consideration, you may grow in the knowledge and love of God, may strive constantly after that which is the will of God - your personal sanctification and, in the imitation of Jesus Christ, your divine Master and Model, you may practise the virtues proper to your state of life, as inculcated especially in the Eight Beatitudes, so that you may ultimately achieve your destiny and one day be admitted to the City of the Saints, the everlasting happiness of which is indicated by St. Paul in his Epistle to the Corinthians: “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither hath it entered into the heart of man, what things God hath prepared for them that love Him,” and which is described by St. John in the Apocalypse : “Behold the tabernacle of God with men. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes: and death shall be no more, nor mourning, nor crying, nor sorrow shall be any more; for the former things are passed away.”

Let us go to Jesus
Devotions in Honour of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King
Complied by Fr Francis Xavier Lasance

Brief Visits to the Blessed Sacrament, together with Prayers for Mass and Holy Communion, Litanies and Devotions for Various Occasions by Fr. Lasance.

Among his many writings, Lasance offers up a small book of various devotions, prayers, and litanies for all occasions. Included in this book are footnotes which act as a follow up to previous passages to further emphasize specific phrases.

Along with illustrations, Lasance touches on certain prayer passages and indulges his readers on further reflections on their meanings. For example, from his Reflections on the Second Petition of the Lord’s Prayer: “Thy Kingdom Come”, Lasance says, “Consider that in this the second petition of the “Our Father” we pray for the kingdom of God. Now, we find in Holy Writ that the kingdom of God is understood in three different ways. First, of the eternal kingdom of God. . .”. With his teachings, Lasance brings traditional prayers into a new light.

Manna of the Soul
Manna of the Soul
compiled by Fr Francis Xavier Lasance

This is a beautiful and very useful prayerbook. Originally put together by the prolific Father Lasance, this book was reccommended by Pope Pius XI. It was printed in a large font with plenty of spacing and was designed for easy reading in the low light conditions found in many Catholic churchs. Loreto has produced a modern edition on bright white paper for ease of reading in places where the lighting is less than adequate or for those people who either need magnifiers for close up reading or whose eyesight is less than what it used to be. This is the only truly large print prayerbook available with all of the old traditional prayers.

Sacred Heart Book

Sacred Heart Book
by Fr Francis Xavier Lasance

We purpose, by means of this book, to inculcate the proper spirit of the devotion to the Sacred Heart, to assist souls in cultivating the interior life in the midst of the distracting pursuits of the world, and to foster a fervent yet reasonable devotion - a love that is both affective and effective - not a mere sentimentality, but a robust and practical piety.

It is this that lives become self-forgetting, devoted, according to the Heart of Jesus, and, through, union with Him, are hidden in God.

The choice of a young man (priesthood, religious or married state) is discussed and the virtues of manhood are examined. Prayers, litanies and numerous traditional devotions are included in the last half of the book along with information on the Sodality of Mary.
