Excerpt from The Spirit of the Dominican Order: Illustrated From the Lives of Its Saints

In justice to the gifted writer of the book to which these words are prefaced, the reader is asked to bear in mind that the work is a posthumous one - it appears two years after her death; and also that it was not intended in the first instance for publication, having been written solely for the personal edification of her Sisters in religion. When urged in after years to publish it, Mother Frances Raphael hesitated and in the end through diffidence failed to do so. It was written for the most part in her early religious life, two years only after her profession, when many sources of Dominican information now available were as yet either undiscovered or at best little known. She always felt that for general reading it would have to be added to, re-arranged and almost entirely remodelled. In defence to the opinion of others, her spiritual children have now wisely decided to give these pages to the public, in the fullest confidence that as they have been to them so they will be to many souls, in the world as well as in the cloister, a signal of comfort and encouragement in difficulties and doubts, and a beacon-light to guide them helpfully and hopefully through many a dark storm. Knowing the mind of their Mother, they have endeavoured to carry out her will; they have verified quotations; and they have made certain additions which, had she lived to revise the work for the press, the author had in contemplation.
