More About 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 Peace of Soul?

If EVER there were a SOUL, FULTON can give it PEACE!!!  Apr 2, 2001
I am a fond reader of science non-fiction and spiritual transcendental books and have always yearned for a book which can fuse this dichotomy. Mind you, souls and physics/origins of the universe great logic the 2 do not make! However one cannot argue that there are issues which science cannot answer and theologies which religions hold true. (that being the soul or our humanity)

This book is able to convey the importance of the belief in souls/spirituality w/o referencing biblical fiction which would cross realms of scientific culpability (ie turning to salt or creating the world in 6 days). It simply reminds us of our humanity and that our human essence is not grounded in physical origin but rather in a place far greater than our physical existence. He also recounts the human error of solving many psychological problems with drugs rather than possibly sourcing it to something beyond the brain. That our being far exceeds the sum of our physical parts, and that in attending to this, we may truly find peace in this world as well as any others that follow.

Of the many great excerpts from this book, one seems to resonate frequently - that our souls will not find peace in finite things of this world. That to truly find peace, we must find it in the infinite.

There are many references to God that I believe a Christian reader can benefit from moreso than readers from a different theology. However a modicum of understanding of souls and spiritualism will benefit many other readers as well.

All in all, I believe this book is truly uplifting - and I'm not talking endorphin and serotonin rushes here - Fulton is able to truly center on that "something else" which makes you human and brings you to a place so great that makes you KNOW that you can LIVE and DIE in peace.


I love Fulton Sheen, his book has helped turn my life around  Oct 24, 2000
I read Fulton Sheen's book a couple of years ago. While rereading it, many things come back to me which have pointed my life away from depending on the material, the immoral and the un-helpful ways of finding peace in friends and psychiatrists who have just about tried to separate me from the true faith Catholicism and to separate me from Jesus Christ. I find it quite interesting that the chapter of his where he compares psychology vs faith in the Healing Physician (ie Jesus Christ Himself) is very much the core of why people keep going to their shrinks when they might do better going to Holy Mass and meditating on where their souls are at the present time. My biggest recommendation to all is that our souls are the highest possession we have from God above, and that in communing with His Son and the Saints (esp Fulton Sheen, because I know he is in heaven and should be a saint) is our passport to heaven. I feel much gratitude to Fulton J Sheen, and will always be indebted to him and his teachings for where I am and who I am now. Peaceable and contemplative.
An Outstanding engagement with modern thought  Jun 29, 1999
Bishop Sheen has done an outstanding job of bringing Christian revelation to bear on modern problems and modern understandings of the psyche and the soul. Sheen shows that Christian revelation about the soul is the only true answer to man's neurosis. The book is wholly, and entirely, Orthodox and represents the best of modern Catholic thinking. THe Catholic tradition of thinking has always been involved in an engagement of Christian revelation with contemporary intellectual thinking. Not only was a harmonization of the best of secular thinking and Divine Revelation achieved by St. Thomas Aquinas in the 1200's, but it was also the achievement of the Fathers of the Church as well. Sheen stands in this tradition, addressing pastoral and moral concerns of contemporary man. Sheen will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the finest pastoral theologians of this century.
Not representative of Catholicism.  Jul 26, 1998
Not recommended. Why bother with this tosh when you can read the doctors of the Church, the saints, the Holy See, and other goodies?
