Books of Fr John Lens

Three spoonfuls a day
A compilation of amusing anecdotes and jokes - just three of them for a day!! (But the whole book too can be devoured in a day - after all who follows the doctor's prescription, these days?!!)

Snacks
A handy alphabetical compilation of anecdotes, stories, values and themes which can be used for animation, sermons, talks, reflections and sharing.

A drop of honey
The Spirituality of St Francis de Sales encapsulated through stories from the life and works of the Saintly patron of the Salesians of Don Bosco. Ideal for sermons, animations, retreat talks especially for young people. (Abridged from the voluminous study of Msgr Francis Trochu. Lyon: Librairie Catholique Emmanuel Vitte, 1946)
