The Cross and the Crib: When Calvary Becomes the Nursery - Allan Smith - Fulton Sheen Today (Paperback)

In this volume, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen will share nine different reflections that speak to the third word that Jesus spoke from the Cross on Calvary. This anthology has been arranged to provide ten unique reflections for study and meditation on the words "Woman behold your son; behold your Mother (John 19:26-27).

- Woman, behold thy Son; Behold thy Mother
- Thy Kingdom Come
- The Sanctus
- Blessed are the Clean of Heart
- The Suffering of the Innocent
- Overcoming the Sin of Lust
- Practicing the Virtue of Prudence
- A Word to the Selfish
- The Fellowship of Religion
- When Calvary Becomes the Nursery

As the readers ponder these reflections, they might have to pause for a moment or two over a sentence that is full of deep meaning that stirs the heart. They might also find that Archbishop Sheen has repeated certain lines throughout these reflections to drive home a point or an important theme, as any good teacher would do.

In this ‘Catechesis of the Cross’, the reader will be given a fresh and new perspective on these last words spoken by Jesus from the Cross.

On October 2nd, 1979, in St. Patrick’s Cathedral, New York City, just two months before Archbishop Sheen died, Pope St. John Paul II spoke a word of blessing to him, “You have written and spoken well of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. You are a loyal son of the Church.” It is hoped that after reading these reflections, you will wholeheartedly agree with the pope’s affirmation and see for yourself Archbishop Sheen’s many gifts as a writer and evangelist.

God Love You.
