A book was written about Father Francis: "Celestial Dragon: The Life and Letters of Fr. Francis Rouleau" by Barry Martinson, Loyal University Press, 1999 (ISBN: 9579185530).
"Celestial Dragon is the name the Chinese gave to their beloved Jesuit priest, and missionary, Father Francis Rouleau, S.J. This book gives a picture of an extraordinary man as revealed through his letters, and personal devotional writings. Father Rouleau, seen through the eyes and testimony of those who loved him, was not only a great missioner; he was also a very special counselor, a beloved teacher, a noted historian and a dedicated spiritual master. He had a deep love for China and a deep affection for the Society of Jesus. Father Rouleau died in 1984."
