In this episode Matthew-Hermann Tague talks to Allan Smith from Bishop Sheen Today about the book ‘The Seven Virtues – The Seven Last Words and the Art of Practicing Virtue’ by the Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.
The Seven Virtues: The Seven Last Words and the Art of Practicing Virtue
– Fulton J. Sheen (Paperback)
World-renowned evangelist and New York Times best-selling author Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen presents a collection of engaging sermons, encouraging the reader in the practice of the three theological virtues of faith, hope and charity along with the four cardinal virtues of prudence, temperance, justice and fortitude.
During these reflections, Sheen will make a connection between these seven virtues and the Seven Last Words spoken by Jesus from the Cross. While these meditations by Fulton J. Sheen on the Seven Last Words correlated to the seven virtues make no pretence to absoluteness, they do make convenient points of illustrations.
