Meet the Author

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (1895-1979), one of the 20th century's best-known and loved Catholic prelates, was a lecturer, professor, philosopher, preacher, and writer. A radio and television personality, he is widely regarded as the original media luminary for the spiritual world. This former director of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith leaves behind an enormous written and oral history. In addition to two weekly syndicated newspaper columns that ran for close to two decades, he authored scores of books.

    Very Enlightening Book

    I loved the book. It truly brings the early teachings of Christ in the Beatitudes together with the final words of Christ on the cross. It awakenend in me a sense of my need for humility. A must read for those serious about becoming one with Christ.
