More About Michael Dubruiel
FULTON J. SHEEN (1895-1979), one of the most prominent Catholic was the voice of American Catholicism for nearly fifty years. In addition to his prolific writings, Sheen dominated the airwaves, first in radio, and later television, with his signature program "Life Is Worth Living," drawing an average of 30 million viewers a week in the 1950s. Sheen had the ears of everyone from presidents to the common men, women, and children in the pews, and his uplifting message of faith, hope, and love shaped generations of Catholics.
Reviews - What do customers think about Praying in the Presence of Our Lord with Fulton J. Sheen?
Wow! Oct 1, 2007
We are fortunate to have a Chapel of Perpetual Adoration in a nearby town (Shinnston, WV) and I was looking for something to read during my weekly hour visit. I ordered the book because I had always heard about Bishop Sheen but had never read any of his works. He was from the `before my time' era. Would it apply to my life? Well, so far I've only read the first 3 chapters, and WOW it hits me right where I am in my prayer journey. Our God is so remarkable, transcending time and space to meet me through the pages of this book. If you are looking for something to bring you to the Lord, this book is it. It has just the right amount of information to spend an hour in quiet prayer time (maybe less). Each chapter has part of one of Bishop Sheen's sermons (or excerpt from a book) and a reflection and then some thought provoking questions. This is one book I am keeping!!
My privilege Feb 4, 2006
I had the great privilege of seeing Fulton Sheen's television show the first time around. I was just a child, but the man with the twinkling eyes and beetle brows spoke to me as well as to my parents. His warmth, kindness, holiness and humor absolutely radiated. We are fortunate that the author and editor of this book took the time to save these wonderful and holy thoughts of a wonderful and holy man.
Why I put this little book together... May 14, 2005
I have been a big fan of Archbishop Sheen for many years and now pray daily for his sainthood. In the history of the Catholic Church in the United States there has been no greater promoter of Eucharistic Devotion than Archbishop Sheen. I have gathered snipets of this writing and arranged it for prayerful use or just to familiarize those who may not be familiar with the Archbishop of his writings.
Search through the book and get a feel for why this great man should be one of the first native born American saints! If you would like a holy card visit my homepage, just do a search on Google of my name.
