Fulton Sheen writes about his life and what inspired the man. He writes of his road to the priesthood and his subsequent path towards loving God in the best way he could. He talks about the 'Holy hour' before the blessed sacrament that made his day and that inspired his countless writings. He writes about his love for souls and their conversion to Christ. In this, his passion was to help convert people through the missions; his work as the in charge for the Propagation of the faith. He writes of his travels and of his encounters with hundreds and thousands of people and how he inspired people to come back to God. Truly insightful in practical everyday living with deep thoughts about life and its everday aspects of struggle and how to put meaning into it. His life is truly worth reading....

Archbishop Sheen by the grace of God was given enough time on earth to write this book. He died a few days upon its completion. His television show was engaging enough to capture the rapt attention of child and adult alike. As does this book.

We learn of his life from the time as a child being raised by his Christian parents and the ethics they instilled in him. Through his early priesthood, his studies and his life long vocation as a priest. It even includes his experience at the Second Vatican Council. He leaves nothing out of his life, his mistakes, his sins his love are all laid out for us to learn from.

His life is truly inspirational and should be read by every priest. In his own words he always lets us know he never felt worthy of any of his accomplishments and knew all he did was by the grace of God. A true great teacher of the twentieth centaury. this book is a treasure to be read and cherished.

I was eager to read the biography of thie Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen having recently become acquainted with his message through his 'Life is worth living' series of talks. His books are a 'must read' and are great spiritual guidance for all people of faith or none. His humour and recollection in the face of great personal suffering can aid in any circumstance we may encounter in life.
This book was finished just days before he died and so is even more poignant to read the last chapters on suffering.
His faith and trust in God is so strong it can lift us from the doubts even the strongest believer feels sometimes.
It is wonderful to be able to see and read a modern Saint in the making.
I urge everyone to read his books.
'God Love you forever' Fulton Sheen.
