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 Mornings With Fulton Sheen: 120 Holy Hour Readings?
Big Things, Often Come in Small Packages! Jan 9, 2006
An earlier reader, who claims to be from San Jose, states that the readings are nothing more than sayings... perhaps he or she is unaware of the old adage, "Big things often come in small packages." The definition of "Reading" as a noun, does not state the number of words, length of sentences or time required in order to be called a "reading." Perhaps our friend from "San Jose" should meditate more on the messages contained in each reading and less on the length of them... the unwarranted attack on Ms. Heirich speaks volumes of this individuals character and lack of understanding about meditation and how to best grow and benefit from a book such as Mornings With Fulton Sheen. The simplicity of the selections is what draws me to this precious little book each morning. Over the past 2 years I have gained much...learned much and in turn, shared much of the simple wisdom found in it. I encourage you to get a copy and carry it in your car or handbag or backpack...for those times when, as Winnie The Pooh said, you need a little "something." Ms. Heirich did an excellent, may I say, profound job of editing the massive volume of Bishop Sheen's work. The simplicity of Mornings, reflects her skill as an editor and is what keeps people, like me, returning to it morning after morning.
Enrich your Holy Hour May 4, 2005
This wonderful resource will lend insight and depth to the time you spend in daily prayer. Each of the 120 chapters contains a thought provoking reflection and a related scripture passage. An excellent addition to your devotional library.
Meditation for Christians Dec 14, 2004
What an amazing book! I'm a Christian who has used Transcendental Meditation (TM) and practiced Yoga, but I had never heard of "the ancient and powerful practice of Christian meditation." Of course I knew monks meditate, but this book encourages purely Christian meditation for all Christians, and explains why the difference between Eastern techniques and Christian meditation (which Fulton Sheen said is not the same as devotions) matters a lot! "In meditation the ear of the soul is more important than the tongue. St. Paul tells us that faith comes from listening. In a daily Holy Hour, we wait for Him to speak--and He does!"
This book tells how to meditate on 120 of the hardest questions in life by connecting the heavenly wisdom of Fulton Sheen with down-to-earth action from the Book of Proverbs. I'm a reader and I've read books with 600 pages that haven't had anywhere near the level of practical knowledge and godly wisdom that I've gained from this small book.
Here are just a few of the questions the book asks and answers, each in a few words on a single page with a space to record what you hear from God: How can we teach children to work hard? What is the secret of the missing link? What is the only personal favor Jesus ever asked of His followers? What is the connection between beauty shops and worms? What can you learn from golfing with Jack Nicklaus? What is a five-minute health routine? What is the connection between dirty rivers and bed-hopping? What are the saddest words of all? What is the great fallacy of some types of sex education? How can I know for sure if I'm a true follower of Christ? What three surprises are waiting for me in Heaven? Why do so many acts of rape end in murder of the victim? What are three fool-proof steps to build self-esteem?
mornings with fulton sheen Nov 5, 2003
Mornings with Fulton Sheen was HILARIOUS and IT HAS A GREAT striking words. I STRONGLY recommend to buy this book, It is inspiring as well as encouraging to anyone who reads it.
I have never heard about Fulton Sheen's name before, as well as his writings too. There is one short stories that I like, this book is called Mornings with Fulton Sheen.
As I was reading these pages of this book "Mornings with fulton Sheen" it was about A tough man named John who is subject to sentence to die, after he murdered his wife. John doesn't like to talk to anyone in his cell room. Fulton Sheen shared his words to John. Amazingly, John turns to Fulton Sheen and begins to focus what Fulton Sheen has something to say to him..
Each pages I read is TRUE. He shares many hilarious stories and good advice. He speaks about himself, too. I can imagine, that after I read the pages of this book, I realized that all the writings speaks about ourselves, our neighbors, virtues, and most of all, OUR DEAR LORD!! I think, if you read this book, you may find a good quality of the stories and you may want to share this to your love ones. They too, will laugh..and ask for a copy of Fulton Sheen's too.
Great! Perfect comfort for these times. Apr 6, 2003
