Publication Date: 2003-03-01
During times of strife and danger, when so many of our loved ones are facing a battle all their own, it's important to arm ourselves with something that can keep us safe - the armor of God. Archbishop Fulton Sheen recognized the need for this protective tool and in wartime crafted something special to fill that need - his wartime prayerbook. This tiny book encompasses powerful prayers suitable for any turbulent time, measuring just 2 x 3 inches and small enough to slip into a pocket or purse and take with you on your spiritual journey.
Fulton Sheen's Wartime Prayer Book was written specifically during WWII but it stands as timely today as it did then. Inside, readers will find messages filled with challenge, comfort and hope from one who truly understood and appreciated the pain of vulnerability. Inspirational teachings from Sheen further encourage readers to stay strong even in these trying times.
Archbishop Sheen's faith was rooted firmly in both the human heart and service to God, harnessed together through his unifying words found in Fulton Sheen's Wartime Prayerbook. Whether opening the book during peacetime or warzone alike, we too can arm ourselves with strength and armor thanks to this timeless reminder from a beloved figure of faith.
Archbishop Sheen is known for his preaching and especially his work on television and radio. His cause for canonization as a saint 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."
Nice little book. Makes an ideal gift for the men in your life, although women would of course benefit from it as well!
This book is transformative, it will help to transform your heart, it will help to transform your will. And if you let it, it will help to transform your life and through that help you to be an agent of transformation in the world. One of the key ways it will do that is that it will inspire you to become a person of prayer, a prayer warrior for it is true as Christians, as Catholics we are all called to be in the army of God.
