World-renowned evangelist, Emmy award winner and New York Times best-selling author Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen will present a collection of his writings that will encourage the reader to better understand the transformative power of the Eucharist.This special edition contains two of Sheen's most sought after books. There is the 1936 book, Calvary and the Mass: A Missal Companion along with Sheen's 1945, Holy Hour Prayer Book. Here you will find insightful meditations given by Fulton J. Sheen and other great writers on the topics of:WHY MAKE A HOLY HOUR; HOW TO MAKE THE HOLY HOUR; THE INCARNATION OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR, JESUS CHRIST; HOW CHRIST LIVES IN US TODAY; HOW THE DIVINE LIFE IS LOST AND OUR FINAL ENDTHE DUTY OF SELF-DENIAL; GIVING GLORY TO GOD IN THE WORLD; THE EUCHARIST; THE NEED OF OUR HEART; OUR BLESSED MOTHER. Quoting from Fulton Sheen's book Calvary and the Mass, he writes:We were there then during that Crucifixion. The drama was already completed as far as the vision of Christ was concerned, but it had not yet been unfolded to all men and all places and all times. If a motion picture reel, for example, were conscious of itself, it would know the drama from beginning to end, but the spectators in the theatre would not know it until they had seen it unrolled upon the screen. In like manner, our Lord on the Cross saw His eternal mind, the whole drama of history, the story of each individual soul and how later on it would react to His Crucifixion; but though He saw all, we could not know how we would react to the Cross until we were unrolled upon the screen of time. We were not conscious of being present there on Calvary that day, but He was conscious of our presence. Today we know the role we played in the theatre of Calvary, by the way, we live and act now in the theatre of the twentieth century

The Lord's Prayer and the Seven Last Words: Two Bridges Connecting Heaven and Earth - Fulton J. Sheen - Bishop Sheen Today (paperback)

During the 1930s and ’40s, Fulton Sheen was the featured speaker on The Catholic Hour radio broadcast, and millions of listeners heard his radio addresses each week. His topics ranged from politics and the economy to philosophy and man’s eternal pursuit of happiness.

Along with his weekly radio program, Sheen wrote dozens of books and pamphlets. One can safely say that through his writings, thousands of people changed their perspective about God and the Church.

Possessing a burning zeal to dispel the myths about Our Lord and His Church, Sheen gave a series of powerful presentations on Christ’s Passion and His seven last words from the Cross. As a Scripture scholar, Archbishop Sheen knew full well the power contained in preaching Christ crucified. With St. Paul, he could say, “For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified” (1 Cor. 2:2).

During his last recorded Good Friday address in 1979, Archbishop Sheen spoke of having given this type of reflection on the subject of Christ’s seven last words from the Cross “for the fifty-eighth consecutive time.” Whether from the young priest in Peoria, Illinois, the university professor in Washington, D.C., or the bishop in New York, Sheen’s messages were sure to make an indelible mark on his listeners.

Given their importance and the impact they had on society, it seemed appropriate to reintroduce a number of these reflections from 1933 and 1935 on the Seven Last Words and The Lord's Prayer.

Fulton Sheen wrote:

Our Lord is the only King who ever stumbled to His throne. But that was because He is God, and God reveals His Power through the weakness of a crucifixion and His Wisdom through the foolishness of a cross.

What message will the King deliver from His un-kingly throne? Last words are always important but particularly the last words of Him Who gave His Life for the redemption of many! It will be recalled that one day, the Apostles approached Him saying: “Lord, teach us to pray.” He answered their request by giving them the perfect prayer: the Our Father. Now the time comes for Him to say His own “Our Father.” As there were seven petitions in the “Our Father” He taught us, so there are seven petitions in His own last prayer. They are known as the Seven Last Words. We shall meditate conjointly on our “Our Father,” and His “Our Father.”


Our Father Who art in heaven. / Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.

Hallowed be Thy Name. / Amen, I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise.

Thy Kingdom Come. / Woman, behold thy son.

Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven. / My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Give us this day our daily bread. / I thirst.

Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. / It is consummated.

Deliver us from all evil. Amen. / Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.


The Lord's Prayer and the Seven Last Words have been referred to as "Two Bridges Connecting Heaven and Earth". In the pages that will follow, Archbishop Sheen will help us to understand this in a more deep and meaningful way.
