A wartime prayerbook written for dangerous days like ours — made to fit in pocket or purse!

Our parents before us understood that strife is rarely far from even the best of us, and they girded themselves for warfare, actual and spiritual.

Among the wisest of men who shepherded them was Archbishop Fulton Sheen, who won their hearts with his warm, engaging broadcast personality . . . but in secret he put on the armor of God.

World War II thrust temptation, fear, danger, and death on the men and women Archbishop Sheen had formed through his popular radio shows in the 1930’s.

Knowing that many of his listeners were now beyond the sound of his voice, fighting and dying on battlefields afar, he wrote this pocket-size prayerbook so that they, too, could put on the armor of God as they faced their new trials, physical and spiritual.

Recently, a friend showed us his tattered World War II copy. We recognized immediately that with the new dangers we face since September 11, the time had come to draft this old prayer book back into service.

Yes, it’s for soldiers (and you should send it to every soldier you know so he will have it in his breast pocket when he needs it); but it’s for you and me, too.

Archbishop Sheen knew that no matter what our circumstances may be, the deadliest enemy we face is armed not with a gun but with temptation. In dangerous, uncertain times like ours, the Devil lures us quickly into lust, anger, hatred, and despair. Fulton Sheen’s Wartime Prayer Book will help keep you from these vices so that you, too, can put on the armor of God and triumph over evil in our day.

About the Author:

In the 1950s, Fulton J. Sheen (1895-1979) was one of the most popular television personalities in America, captivating millions of prime-time viewers weekly with enlightening talks on the essentials of Christianity and the moral life.

His cause for canonization for sainthood was opened in 2002. In June 2012, Pope Benedict XVI officially recognized a decree from the Congregation for the Causes of Saints stating that he lived a life of heroic virtues - a major step towards beatification.

Ordained a priest of the Diocese of Peoria in 1919, Sheen quickly became a renowned theologian. He went on to teach theology and philosophy and was appointed Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of New York in 1951. In 1966 he was made the Bishop of Rochester and later the Archbishop of the Titular See of Newport, Wales.

For 20 years he hosted the night-time radio program The Catholic Hour before moving to television and presenting Life Is Worth Living (1951 1957). Sheen's final presenting role was on the syndicated The Fulton Sheen Program (1961 1968). For this work, Sheen twice won an Emmy Award for Most Outstanding Television Personality.
