Overview

For sixty years, from the day of his ordination to the priesthood to the day of his death, Fulton J. Sheen spent one hour fulfilling his promise to "keep watch" in the presence of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. Throughout his ministry, he never tired of preaching the spiritual benefits to others. Archbishop Sheen's love for Eucharistic Adoration grew out of his heartfelt conviction that this devotion provides three immense blessings: It allows every believer to share in Our Lord's work of redemption in a specific and concrete way. It fulfills Our Lord's desire and request for our friendship and company. It helps us to grow to be more like the Lord. In this volume of the Praying in the Presence of Our Lord series, author Michael Dubruiel draws from the writings of Archbishop Sheen to show each of us how, in Archbishop Sheen's words, "The holy and glorious God is constantly inviting us to come to Him, to hold converse with Him, to ask for such things as we need and to experience what a blessing there is in fellowship with Him." Whether you are a longtime fan of the preaching of Archbishop Sheen or have only heard of his renown, these reflections will provide hours of fruitful meditation and lead to a deeper relationship with Our Lord Jesus Christ. Join him now in receiving the threefold blessings of the devotion that he loved and promoted all of his life.
