- Minor Orders, by Rev. Louis Bacuez, S.S. (St. Louis, Mo.; London: B. Herder, 1912). With Imprimatur. Available in various formats (pdf, kindle/mobu, epub, etc.) at Internet Archive and Open Library.
- [N.B., In the Latin church, the minor orders are of mainly historical interest, in view of the promulgation of the Motu Proprio “Ministeria Quaedam” by Blessed Pope Paul VI. However, the spiritual counsels in the text may, mutatis mutandis, be of profit to those exercising their successor-ministries.]
O God, our refuge and our strength, look down with mercy upon the people who cry to Thee; and by the intercession of the glorious and immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, of Saint Joseph her spouse, of the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the saints, in Thy mercy and goodness hear our prayers for the conversion of sinners, and for the liberty and exaltation of the Holy Mother the Church. Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen. (From Sancta Missa)
