Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen – My Trusted Guide for Lent

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen – My Trusted Guide for Lent

As I prepare for Lent each year, I ask myself the same questions: what am I going to give up, what works of mercy will I perform, or what spiritual reading might I entertain this year?

The older I get, the more I realize that I cannot go wrong with the tried and proven writings of the saints. Classics such as St. Alphonsus Liguori’s The Way of the Cross, and Lenten reflections from the writings of St. Teresa of Avila and St. Francis de Sales, are staples in my home. But to be honest, it is the writings of the Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen that continue to be my trusted Lenten companion.

Living the Faith at Home

Two words about Mary from the Bible describe most of our lives in December: “in haste.”
