Item description for Fulton Sheen's Wartime Prayer Book by Fulton J. Sheen & Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen...

Overview
A wartime prayerbook written for dangerous days like ours made to fit in pocket or purse! Our parents before us understood that strife is rarely far from even the best of us, and they girded themselves for warfare, actual and spiritual. Among the wisest of men who shepherded them was Archbishop Fulton Sheen, who won their hearts with his warm, engaging broadcast personality . . . but in secret he put on the armor of God. World War II thrust temptation, fear, danger, and death on the men and women Archbishop Sheen had formed through his popular radio shows in the 1930's. Knowing that many of his listeners were now beyond the sound of his voice, fighting and dying on battlefields afar, he wrote this pocket-sized prayerbook so that they, too, could put on the armor of God as they faced their new trials, physical and spiritual. Recently, a friend showed us his tattered World War II copy. We recognized immediately that with the new dangers we face since September 11, the time had come to draft this old prayer book back into service. Yes, it's for soldiers (and you should send it to every soldier you know so he will have it in his breast pocket when he needs it); but it's for you and me, too. Archbishop Sheen knew that no matter what our circumstances may be, the deadliest enemy we face is armed not with a gun but with temptation. In dangerous, uncertain times like ours, the Devil lures us quickly into lust, anger, hatred, and despair. Fulton Sheen's Wartime Prayer Book will help keep you from these vices so that you, too, can put on the armor of God and triumph over evil in our day.

More About Fulton J. Sheen & Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen


Fulton J. Sheen Fulton John Sheen (born Peter John Sheen, May 8, 1895 – December 9, 1979) was an American archbishop of the Roman Catholic Church known for his preaching and especially his work on television and radio. His cause for canonization for sainthood was officially opened in 2002. In June 2012, Pope Benedict XVI officially recognized a decree from the Congregation for the Causes of Saints stating that he lived a life of "heroic virtues" – a major step towards beatification – so he is now referred to as "Venerable".

Ordained a priest of the Diocese of Peoria in 1919, Sheen quickly became a renowned theologian, earning the Cardinal Mercier Prize for International Philosophy in 1923. He went on to teach theology and philosophy as well as acting as a parish priest before being appointed Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of New York in 1951. He held this position until 1966 when he was made the Bishop of Rochester from October 21, 1966 to October 6, 1969, when he resigned and was made the Archbishop of the Titular See of Newport, Wales.

For 20 years he hosted the night-time radio program The Catholic Hour (1930–1950) before moving to television and presenting Life Is Worth Living (1951–1957). Sheen's final presenting role was on the syndicated The Fulton Sheen Program (1961–1968) with a format very similar to that of the earlier Life is Worth Living show. For this work, Sheen twice won an Emmy Award for Most Outstanding Television Personality, the only personality appearing on the DuMont Network ever to win a major Emmy award.[clarification needed] Starting in 2009, his shows were being re-broadcast on the EWTN and the Trinity Broadcasting Network's Church Channel cable networks.[5] Due to his contribution to televised preaching Sheen is often referred to as one of the first televangelists.

Fulton J. Sheen was born in 1895 and died in 1979.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fulton Sheen's Wartime Prayer Book?

Fantastic  Apr 7, 2008
This is the best pocket prayer/meditation prayer book available. This is not just for soldiers in the field. It is for anyone who wants short concise meditations for everyday situations/life.
 
a great book for soldiers, their family and their friends  Mar 18, 2007
I found this book to be very comforting and a valuable resource. I would recommend it to any Catholic soldier their families or their friends. Yes it was written during World War II but the lessons are just as applicable today as they were then. Especially if you know a soldier who is serving in Iraq or Afghanistan. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who knows a Catholic soldier because it has prayers, words of encouragement and other important things yet it is compact enough to fit in a pocket so it is easy to carry.
 
Spiritual guide for life  Aug 2, 2005
This is a wonderfully concise,
spiritual guide.
I gave one to my son in Iraq,
and keep one close at hand
for my own daily battles.
It reminds me that
God will help in times where
our physical and emotional
strength is exhausted,
but our battle for human dignity
is not yet won.
 
This book is Fantastic!!  Jul 28, 2003
I love this little book!! :-) I carry it everywhere I go. Thinking about the short meditations and prayers throughout the day brings me a real sense of peace. Fulton Sheen put together an amazing little book for our military people and civilians back during WWII, and it's so nice to have an abridge version for our modern times. Everyday is a battle!! The book may see expensive, but it's worth every penny. I'd recommend it to anyone I know--Catholic or non-Catholic. Cheers, Brett ...
