 Our Description

A wartime prayer book 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.

Word 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 in battlefields afar, he wrote this pocket-sized prayer book 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 Word 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 new 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 list, anger, hatred, and despair. Fulton Sheen's Wartime Prayer Book will help you from these vices so that you, too, can put on the armor of God and triumph over evil in our day.

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (1895-1979) wrote more than 90 books, including Peace of Soul which rose to sixth place on the New York Times' bestseller list. Equally at home with scholars and the common man, Bishop Sheen won the hearts and minds of all those who came to know him.
