Archbishop Fulton Sheen Signature Set

Archbishop Fulton Sheen Signature Set
Sheen, Fulton J
$119.95
The perfect gift to enrich any Catholic's bookshelf, The Fulton Sheen Signature Set brings to you five of Venerable Fulton Sheen's works, written at various points of his life on a myriad of topics.

These works have stood the test of time because they are still applicable to the most pertinent issues of our present age. To match the perennial wisdom enclosed, each volume is adorned with Archbishop Sheen's signature and is beautifully designed with a classic cover featuring a photograph of the archbishop at the time he wrote the book.

The five works composing this set are:

  • Way to Happiness
  • Communism and the Conscience of the West
  • Thinking Life Through
  • Philosophies at War
  • Preface to Religion
  • In the Way to Happiness, Fulton Sheen reflects on the most fundamental aspects of our lives. He treats love, politics, motherhood, work, teens, forgiveness, rest, meditation, and more.

    Communism and the Conscience of the West details the problems with society stemming from socialism and communism, which continue to infect universities and political discourse today.

    Archbishop Sheen's Thinking Life Through seeks to answer the critical question asked by so many today: "Has Christianity failed?" The conclusions offered are far-reaching and touch upon subjects as diverse as the truth and meaning of human sexuality, the purpose of life, parenting, discordant marriages, angels, alcoholism, the vocation of the soldier, materialism, and even the question of spanking children.

    The American people are addressed by Philosophies at War on the themes of government and politics from the lens not only as a bishop but also as a conscientious citizen. Archbishop Sheen writes of war and revolution, the need of an absolute (God), the roots of democracy, patriotism, and peace, and that the culture war is not merely political and economic but also theological.

    Finally, written amidst the backdrop of World War II, the great Fulton Sheen wrote Preface to Religion, his first book published after the war ended. As the world was recovering from death, destruction, and despair, Sheen's timely work tackles the most salient questions pertaining to happiness and sanity.

    Adding the Fulton Sheen Signature Set to your home library will give you a wealth of knowledge, beautiful books to display, and hours of fruitful reading for years to come.

    Communism and the Conscience of the West

    Communism and the Conscience of the West
    Sheen, Fulton J
    $24.95

    For decades, this book has been recognized as the finest book ever written by a Catholic on the subject of communism. Dedicated to Our Lady in prayerful hope for the conversion of Russia, this is one of Fulton Sheen's most forgotten yet most important books. In Communism and the Conscience of the West, Sheen explains the problems with society stemming from socialism and communism, which continue to infect universities and political discourse today. This timeless book exposes communism's defects, its attitude toward the family, the decline of historical liberalism, and the rise of the antireligious spirit that pervades our world.

    Readers will be impressed as Sheen diagnoses the issues facing our once peaceful cities, with history being put on trial, scrubbed, rewritten, and explained in terms of class hate. While communism destroys human freedom, Sheen illustrates how man is free as a result of two guarantees: one economic and the other spiritual. The economic enables man to call something his own which is outside of himself. The spiritual is the soul, which makes man independent of an earthly tyrant or a political dictator. In short, man's soul is his own on the inside, as his property is his own on the outside.

    Sheen carefully illustrates how even though we are living at a time when man has all the material conditions necessary for his happiness, "having lost the purpose of life which religion supplied, modern man became increasingly frustrated as his disappointed hedonism turned to pessimism. Thus man, who isolated himself from the religious community, now by reaction finds himself absorbed by the political community as despair becomes the dominant note of contemporary philosophy and literature." For anyone seeking to understand one of the greatest threats to the Faith and our world, Communism and the Conscience of the West will be your guide.

    Cries of Jesus from the Cross: A Fulton Sheen Anthology

    Cries of Jesus from the Cross: A Fulton Sheen Anthology
    Sheen, Archbishop Fulton
    $18.95

    Follow the Lenten Reading Schedule HERE.

    As death approaches, the human heart speaks its greatest words of love to those it holds most dear. So it was with Jesus who in His final hours gave us seven last "words," rich with spiritual meaning for every human soul.

    For the first time ever, Archbishop Fulton Sheen's complete writings and reflections on Christ's last words have been compiled into this one book. Sheen shows how the seven words are, in fact, a full catechism on the spiritual life. From them, you'll learn the secrets to living the Beatitudes, ways to avoid the deadly vices of anger, envy, lust, and pride, and how to cultivate the heavenly virtues of fortitude, prudence, justice, and charity.

    Few books are such an inspiring call to sanctity, and few books are such a spiritual powerhouse. With Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen as your guide, you'll also learn:

  • Why, during His Passion, Jesus never proclaimed his innocence.
  • Why Jesus appealed to His Father to forgive, but did not Himself forgive directly.
  • What Jesus' third word from the Cross says about lust.
  • Why, like Jesus, the most innocent among us must suffer.
  • Why darkness covered the earth after Jesus spoke his fourth word.
  • The seven words spoken unto Jesus while He hung on the Cross -- and what they reveal about the impact of Christ's Passion on your soul.
  • What the Passion says about judging others (and why it's an assault against hope).
  • How the conversion of the good thief is the key to the conversion of our modern world.
  • Why you and I can sin a thousand times and be forgiven, and the angels who have sinned but once are eternally unforgiven.
  • How envy becomes the denial of all justice and love.
  • The difference between the virtue of hope and the emotion of hope.

    Declaration of Dependence

    Declaration of Dependence
    Sheen, Archbishop Fulton
    $15.95

    This book reveals the shocking truth you need to know in a world riddled by irrationality, emotionalism, and violence. Religion is under attack, whether from totalitarian governments or modern education. Our tacit submission to politics, "freedom," and science has made us slaves to a diabolical New Atheism and fear.

    With his prescient wit, wisdom, and fervor, Archbishop Fulton Sheen provides clarity amid propagandist lies and pagan societies united in purpose to destroy. He reminds us why we must fear what kills the soul more than what kills the body. He exposes the false prophets and philosophies at work in the world and the many "believers" who no longer worship or act in accordance with their beliefs.

    Archbishop Sheen masterfully decries the divisions and hatreds in America, explaining how we have turned from God and are on the precipice, that there is "too much tolerance of ev

    Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (1895-1979) is arguably this century's most widely acclaimed and best-loved Roman Catholic prelate.

    Go to Heaven

    Go to Heaven
    Sheen, Fulton
    $17.95

    Why is it, asks Bishop Fulton Sheen, that one hears so often the expression Go to hell! and almost never the expression Go to heaven! Here, at his most penetrating, challenging, and illuminating best is Bishop Sheen with his answer, in a book that breathes new meaning into the truths about heaven and hell, and new life into the concepts of faith, tolerance, love, prayer, suffering, and death.

    Beginning with The First Faint Summons to Heaven, Sheen shows how unpopular it is today to be a true Christian, and describes the struggle for living our faith amid the disorders of our times. Keenly aware of evil in the myriad forms it takes in today's world, Bishop Sheen writes about the constant battle man faces with the seven pallbearers of character - pride, avarice, envy, lust, anger, gluttony and sloth - linking them with the corrosive forces that never cease in their attacks on the Church and those who earnestly desire to be serious Christians.

    In Go to Heaven, a great spiritual teacher and writer, deeply aware of the human and spiritual conflicts being waged in the world, shows us the way to heaven in a most eloquent book, encouraging the reader to choose heaven now, and to understand the reality of hell.

    Greatest Commandment: A Fulton Sheen Anthology on Love

    Greatest Commandment: A Fulton Sheen Anthology on Love
    Sheen, Archbishop Fulton
    $17.95
    The term "love" is one of the most widely misunderstood and abused in modern English. Misconceptions about love abound in our chaotic society, which is rooted in selfishness, secular humanism, relativism, and hedonism. Society, divorced from God, unfortunately propagates a concept of love that is, in fact, the antithesis of true love.

    We need Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen's knowledge, wit, and logic now more than ever to fight these fallacies. His perceptive insights illuminate the most controversial topics of our day in our blind, irrational, and severely polarized world. Archbishop Sheen condemns anti-Semitism, racism, and sexism, remembering that we are all children of God. He also discusses what true tolerance entails and why anti-hate program fail.

    The Greatest Commandment is a timely reissue of Archbishop Sheen's groundbreaking works Love One Another and God Love You. This collection of his best-selling comments also includes statements and prayers he gathered to promote ecumenism and societal unity. Archbishop Sheen explains, drawing on Sacred Scripture, saints' works, and philosophy:
    • The meaning of love in light of the Holy Trinity
    • Why God created us to love — and to be loved
    • The three types of love and the nine ingredients to charity
    • How Heaven is the ultimate fulfillment of our joy, desire, and love
    • Why love cannot exist without truth
    • How we give the greatest glory to God at Mass by uniting ourselves to Christ

    The Greatest Commandment is a treasure to ponder because it expounds on our deep need to love God and plead His mercy by forming a personal relationship with Him through Sacred Scripture and the Sacraments, particularly the Holy Eucharist and Confession. God's loving pursuit of our souls compels us to love our neighbour. Love is a choice that necessitates sacrifice; it is the whole offering of oneself to another. Our witness helps the disillusioned find their way back to God. We shall bring about the world's restoration by collaborating with God's Love.

    In modernity, the word love is one of the most commonly misused and abused in our language. Devoid of order, misconceptions about love run rampant, steeped as we are in narcissism, secular humanism, relativism, and hedonism. Separated from God, society tragically propagates a notion of love that is, in truth, the antithesis of authentic love.

    Now more than ever we need Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen's wisdom, wit, and logic to refute these errors. In our sightless, irrational, and deeply polarized world, his prescient words elucidate the most divisive issues of our time. Mindful that we are all children of God, Archbishop Sheen decries anti-Semitism, racism, and sexism. He also explains what real tolerance means and why anti-hate campaigns don't work.

    The Greatest Commandment is a timely reprint of Archbishop Sheen's two seminal books Love One Another

    Life of Christ: Complete (Revised)
    Sheen, Fulton J
    $22.00

    Widely proclaimed a classic work of Christian faith, Life of Christ has been hailed as the most eloquent of Fulton J. Sheen's many books. The fruit of many years of reflection, prayer, and research, it is a dramatic and moving recounting of the birth, life, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Christ, and a passionate portrait of the God-Man, the teacher, the healer, and, most of all, the Savior, whose promise has sustained humanity for two millenia.

His thoughtful, probing analysis provides new insight into well-known Gospel events.

    An appealing blend of philosophy, history, and biblical exegesis, from the best-known and most-loved American Catholic leader of the twentieth century, Life of Christ has long been a source of inspiration and guidance. For those seeking to better understand the message of Jesus Christ, this vivid retelling of the greatest story ever lived is a must-read.

    Philosophies at War

    Philosophies at War
    Sheen, Fulton J
    $24.95

    The modern crisis stems from a great divorce--a divorce between those who have the Truth and those who do not. In Philosophies at War, Sheen addresses the American people on the themes of government and politics not only as a bishop but also as a conscious citizen. He writes of war and revolution, the need of an absolute (God) and the roots of democracy, patriotism, and peace. He shows that the culture war is not merely political and economic but also theological.

    Sheen warns that dangerous political currents are reactions against the excesses and defects of the secularist and materialist culture at large, the result of society turning into nothing but a crisscross of individual egotism. He brilliantly summarizes the false claims of recent totalitarian ideologies such as Marxist socialism, Nazism, fascism, and more. Of these dangers, Sheen explains what they have in common: they "demand power over the total man--the whole man, body and soul, and aim at control over the most intimate regions of the spirit."

    Sheen is further critical of certain aspects of the Industrial Revolution and Liberalism which have isolated man from all responsibility to the common good. He laments, "Such is the essence of our secularist culture: the supremacy of the individual man. In this way man is severed from his roots in God, his roots in law and his roots in the brotherhood of man, which can naturally lead to anarchy and the oppression of the weak and the unfortunate." For anyone seeking to understand the current ideologies that seek to destroy our world, Philosophies at War will be your guide.

    Preface to Religion

    Preface to Religion
    Sheen, Fulton J
    $24.95

    Amidst the backdrop of World War II, the great Fulton Sheen wrote Preface to Religion, his first book published after the war ended. As the world was recovering from death, destruction, and despair, Sheen's timely work tackles the most salient questions pertaining to happiness and sanity. With simplicity and frankness, Sheen declares, "If you do not worship God, you worship something, and nine times out of ten it will be yourself. If there is no God, then you are a god." Throughout this work, Sheen addresses the perennial subjects of fallen nature, forgiveness, the four last things, how God remakes us, the role of religion in the process, and the gift of second chances.

    Contrary to the modern world, God does not give us what "we want for our pleasure" but "what we need for our perfection." Preface to Religion reminds us of education's primary purpose, which is to train the mind to use freedom rightly. God chose to make a moral universe, but morality is impossible without freedom. And therefore, the reader will see that the body must always serve the soul.

    Finally, Sheen writes on faith, that "the modern man who is not living according to his conscience wants a religion without a Cross, a Christ without a Calvary, a Kingdom without Justice," and a pastor "who never mentions hell to ears polite." For anyone seeking to find true happiness and true freedom, Preface to Religion will be your guide.

    Thinking Life Through

    Thinking Life Through
    Sheen, Fulton J
    $24.95

    n the face of a world crisis, which is manifestly deeper than one can imagine, many are inclined to ask: "Has Christianity failed?" Fulton Sheen's Thinking Life Through seeks to answer this critical question. The conclusions the author proposes are far-reaching and touch upon subjects as diverse as the truth and meaning of human sexuality, the purpose of life, discordant marriages, angels, alcoholism, the vocation of the soldier, materialism, parenting, and even the question of spanking children.

    On the critical subject of freedom, Sheen writes, "The true definition of freedom is the right to do whatever one ought, and oughtness implies law, goals, purposes, and perfection. Freedom is a moral power and not a physical one. It revolves around what man is rather than what man does. We are more free within the law than outside of it."

    Thinking Life Through also addresses the world's political climate, something that in many ways mirrors the present political discourse. Focusing on the tragic decline of post-Christian society, Sheen gives special attention to both the threat of communism and the dangers of socialism. Sheen also gives clarity to the role of the individual and the family while living in a time of moral and political uncertainty. Finally, Sheen addresses good manners and politeness as he states in his quintessential style, "Another effect of materialism is to be seen in the decline of courtesy. There is politeness and decorum and a desire to please others when it is generally recognized that every person bears within himself an image of the Divine." For anyone seeking to grow in wisdom, Thinking Life Through will be your guide.

    Victory Over Vice

    Victory Over Vice
    Sheen, Archbishop Fulton
    $9.95

    Fulton Sheen shows you how to win a lasting victory over vice.

    Fulton Sheen claims that since all seven deadly sins led Christ's enemies to nail Him to the Cross, we can find in the example of His suffering and death sure means to overcome each of those sins, plus the key to understanding -- and to nurturing in our own soul -- each corresponding virtue.

    So, for example, in these pages filled with wisdom and hope, Blessed Sheen teaches us not only how to conquer our gluttony; he shows us how to satisfy our spiritual hunger. We learn not merely how to overcome pride; we discover what we must do to grow humble. From Christ's holy response to each of the seven deadly sins that led to His Crucifixion, Blessed Sheen draws a lesson in how you and I must deal with those same sins, whether we meet them in others or in ourselves.

    Day after day, Christians struggle to do good, to avoid evil, and to take up with patience and love the crosses that threaten to crush them. For those of us who still know more of sin than sanctity, Fulton Sheen's revelation of the light that vice sheds on virtue affords a way to understand even better, and a means to attain it. If you abide by the holy counsel of these pages, enduring virtue will soon be yours: you will have achieved your own long-sought-after victory over vice.

    War and Peace: A Sheen Anthology

    War and Peace: A Sheen Anthology
    Sheen, Archbishop Fulton
    $19.95

    Witnessing the growing threat of communism, Bishop Fulton J. Sheen recognized that modern atheism was a new type of Messianism threatening to beguile and conquer humanity.

    Sheen stressed the use of reason as the unparalleled countermeasure to deceptive communism. The first three books contained in this anthology are a collection of Sheen's classic Catholic Hour radio addresses that were heard by millions of listeners in the 1930s and 1940s. Here, in a single compilation, are Bishop Sheen's most clearly delineated investigations into the underlying causes of communism -- every bit as relevant today as when he spoke them -- along with an entirely sound and hopeful program for defeating it.

    Way to Happiness

    Way to Happiness
    Sheen, Fulton J
    $24.95

    Every human person seeks happiness, but few find it, because they have not discovered the source of all happiness: God. In the Way to Happiness, Futon Sheen reflects on the most fundamental aspects of our lives: love, politics, motherhood, work, teens, forgiveness, rest, meditation, and more.

    In a culture stricken with anxiety, boredom, despair, and fear, Sheen desires to reignite healing, hope, and contentment in the reader. While the secular world holds the mistaken belief that hunger for infinity can be satisfied by an infinity of material things, Sheen warns that they really wish for the infinity of divine love. Addressing the philosophy of pleasure, Sheen reminds the reader of the centrality of self-discipline and detachment.

    At the heart of Way to Happiness is heroically living out the spirit of charity: love of God and love of neighbor. To achieve a spirit of service and self-donation, a strong interior life is a perquisite. True peace is born in meditation.

    Lastly, Sheen provides a blueprint to overcome bad habits through introspection, avoiding the occasion of sin, willing the good, and a right philosophy of life. In an age when so few people have time to make a retreat, allow the retreat master, Sheen, to take you on a spiritual journey that will spurn you on to holiness. For anyone seeking a clear path to a happy and saintly life, The Way to Happiness will be your guide.
