Foreword by Fr. Andew Apostoli, C.F.R
Few people are so beloved by Catholics around the world as Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen and St. Thérèse of Lisieux, the Little Flower. Now, for the first time in written form, are Archbishop Sheen’s compelling words about the Little Flower. Taken from the still-popular talks he gave on her in 1973, the archbishop explains why people from all walks of life and in every country of the world so universally love, invoke, and imitate St. Thérèse, who has been called the greatest saint of modern times. This beautiful hardcover book will be something you and your loved ones will treasure. Even readers familiar with St. Thérèse’s life will find their eyes opened to many new insights given by the incomparable Archbishop. Illustrated with 11 pages of biographical photos of Archbishop Sheen.
“During these trying days, saints are not only needed, they are necessary. In this little book, the great Archbishop Sheen explores the spirituality of the Little Flower, giving us lessons and guidance for our own journey to Heaven. There is only one Fulton Sheen and here he is at his best: teeming with spiritual insight, filled with drama, and oh so practical. It’s like going on a retreat with the master himself—a retreat I heartily recommend.”
— Raymond Arroyo, EWTN host, Author, Mother Angelica
“These sermons by Bishop Sheen represent a life long study of the spirituality of St. Thérèse and are among the most inspiring of his works. There are many new insights into the much studied life of the saint but also into the spiritual life of this apostle of the media. The reader will be profoundly rewarded.”
