Lord, Teach Us To Pray
A Fulton Sheen Anthology
by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
Over the course of Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s storied career, thousands approached him with a simple request: “Teach us to pray.” Now, for the first time ever, his wise teachings on prayer have been collected into a single volume to help you perfect your prayers and make them what they must become: a daily, holy habit.
First come Bishop Sheen’s insightful reflections on the Our Father and its indispensable connection to the Seven Last Words of Christ. Then Bishop Sheen unveils smoldering, oft-overlooked riches in other everyday Catholic prayers, transforming them from rote recitations into powerful moments of communion with God.
With his help, you’ll then journey through the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, learning how to bring peace to your soul and grow more receptive to God’s grace. You’ll also discover how to make your Holy Hours more efficacious and master a variety of other techniques that Bishop Sheen employed in his own fruitful quest for holiness. Best of all, you’ll immerse yourself in an incomparable collection of Fulton Sheen’s reflections on the Mass, meditations for Holy Hours, and dozens of prayers he recommends for most occasions in the Christian life.
Prayer, meditation, Holy Hours, the Mass, and even a bit of philosophy: it’s all here in this delightful anthology of the works of the saintly archbishop Fulton J. Sheen!
