St. Mary Euphrasia Pelletier's work 'Conferences and Instructions' as well as some works of Ven. Mary de Agreda have been added to Saints' Books.

St. Mary Euphrasia Pelletier - Conferences and Instructions :

'As so many bees you fly from flower to flower, bringing your harvest to the common store. This is as the mysterious work of a hive, where each occupies herself for the general good, without reserving anything for herself. Those who are beginners now in religion find their little cells already built, the stores already prepared, and it will come to pass that thousands and thousands of souls will come here after us to enjoy the delights and the rest of the Lord, working in their turn to prepare a place for those who will succeed them.'

Ven. Mary of Agreda - The Admirable Life of the Glorious Patriarch Saint Joseph :

'St. Joseph, having been chosen by God to be His image towards His only Son, was not marked out for any public function in the Church of God, but merely to be the expression of His purity and the incomparable sanctity which separates Him from every visible creature ; and hence he is the patron of hidden and unknown souls. Far different are the functions of St Peter in the Church, from the operations of St. Joseph within it. St Peter is established to control its exterior in its government and administrations, to preserve its doctrines, and to direct its prelates and ministers. St Joseph, on the contrary, who is a saint hidden, and without external functions, is appointed to communicate interiorly the super-eminent life which he receives from the Father, and which afterwards flows through Jesus Christ upon us.'

Ven. Mary of Agreda - The Mystical City of God - Vol. I - The Conception :

'The vow of chastity includes purity of body and soul; this is easily lost, and it is difficult, sometimes, according to the manner of losing it, even impossible to repair. This great treasure is deposited in a castle, which has many portals and openings, and if these are not all well guarded and defended, the treasure is without security. My daughter, in order to preserve perfectly this vow, it is necessary to make an inviolable pact with thy senses, not to use them, except for what is according to the dictates of reason and for the glory of the Creator.'
