1) The Catholic Controversy - a collection of treatises of St. Francis de Sales

2) The Breviloquium - St. Bonaventure

3) The Way of Divine Love - Sr. Josefa Menendez

4) True Devotion to Mary - St. Louis de Montfort

5) The Secrets of the Rosary - St. Louis de Montfort

my "bonus book" would be :

The Roman Catechism (i.e., the Catechism of the Council of Trent)

1) True Devotion (NOT the new version by Montfort Brothers/ Montfort Publications) along with Preparation for Total Consecration (in the back) by St.Louis Marie Grignon de Montfort

2) Fundamentals of Catholic dogma, by Dr. Ludwig Van Ott

3) Uniformity to God's Will (actually a short treatise) by Father of the Church, St. Alphonsus Liguouri

4.) 100- year old Douay-Rheims Bible

5) My '62 Missal.

Ok, if numbers 4 an 5 do not qualify because in this thread they were "givens", then I would say...

4) My two-part publication of "Lamentabili Sane" along with "Pascendi Dominicis Gregis"

5) Sources of Catholic Dogma (out of print)

Wow. I might replace "Sources" with "The Fire Within", though.

Also, I may add "The Devout Life" by St. Francis de Sales".


After that, then "Story of a Soul" by St. Therese of Lisieux
