New Anthology of Fulton Sheen about “The Greatest Commandment”

Soooo many books.  So little time.

I bring to your attention a new but old, nova sed vetera, book:

The Greatest Commandment: A Fulton Sheen Anthology on Love edited by Al Smith.


(No matter what you are shopping for, please use my amazon affiliate links.  More important than ever.)

Right off the bat, looking at the Table of Contents and spot reading, this could provide good sources to combat critical race theory and the diabolical distortion of friendship that are same-sex “active” relationships.

The book is flawed in that there is no index, but the sections are pretty well systematic in their distinctions.  It is a little on giving complete citations, which is a lacuna.

How refreshing it is to spend some time with a mind like Fulton Sheen’s, his eloquence, even when it is coming through the pages of a book.

    I believe Mother Teresa said the Life of Christ by Sheen was one of her favorites. Can you get any better endorsement?

    I also recommend The World’s First Love, with its prophetic section on Mary and the Muslims.

    Oh yes, and then Three To Get Married for marriage prep and rehabilitation.

    Quite a list already for a boy from El Paso, Illinois.

    AND let’s get his Beatification moving forward again!!

    Time for the “bishop’s hold” to end.

    acardnal: Exactly, Santo subito. Inspiring and enlightening sermons, wore a cape to work, gave those Commies what for.

    “So he gave them what they asked for, and sent a wasting disease against them.” Psalm 106
