Counsels & Devotions for Girls in the Ordinary Walks of Life
The members of the Little Flowers Girls Clubs are sure to recognize the Maiden's Wreath of Virtues in this classic, on which their flower badges were based. Father Lasance explores in depth the virtues of the Catholic Girl, as personified by various flowers, with particular attention to that most precious possession: the lily of purity.
However, this book goes far beyond simple lessons in virtue; it is truly a manual for the Catholic young lady from the middle years up to-and including-married life.
Like its companion volume, The Young Man's Guide, the original book contained hundreds of pages of prayers, devotions, litanies and even a Latin Missal. Select prayers from this section have been placed at the end of each chapter and the rest have been omitted in order to make this valuable book available in a more portable and affordable format for today's Catholic girl. Due to this fact, this volume is considered abridged; however, all material contained in this edition is unchanged based on the original 1906 edition by Benziger Brothers.
Beautifully illustrated with 17th century botanical engravings and Victorian art, this book is sure to be a cherished keepsake.
