FULTON SHEEN WARTIME PRAYER BOOK PDF

Written for soldiers by Blessed Fulton Sheen in the darkest moments of World War II, this small prayer book has been proven in combat and hallowed by the suffering, prayers, and sacrifices of thousands of Catholic fighting men and women on ships, submarines, and aircraft, in fortresses and foxholes, and even in hellish prisoner of war camps across Europe and the Pacific. Peacetime led those soldiers and sailors to put aside this powerful wartime prayer book as they entered a world rendered more secure because of their sacrifices. New enemies have shattered the security those good soldiers won. Terrorism now takes as its battlefield our homes, our schools, and our workplaces, threatening even those of us who are not in the military.

Recently, a friend sent us his only copy of The Armor of God, a sixty-year-old, pocket-sized prayer book, its scuffed leather cover worn from hard use in rough circumstances. Written for soldiers by Msgr. Fulton Sheen in the darkest moments of World War II, this small prayer book has been proven in combat and hallowed by the suffering, prayers, and sacrifices of thousands of Catholic fighting men and women on ships, submarines, and aircraft, in fortresses and foxholes, and even in hellish prisoner of war camps across Europe and the Pacific.

Peacetime led those soldiers and sailors to put aside this powerful wartime prayer book as they entered a world rendered more secure because of their sacrifices. New enemies have shattered the security those good soldiers won sixty years ago.

Terrorism now takes as its battlefield our homes, our schools, and our workplaces, threatening even those of us who are not in the military. Duct tape may protect us from chemical and biological weapons, but it surely won't protect us from the corrosive, soul-destroying impact of fear, anger, uncertainty, and despair, which daily life on this battlefield is causing already. Now is the time to draft The Armor of God back into God's service. We have published it as Fulton Sheen's Wartime Prayer Book, in a pocket-sized leatherette edition similar to the original that you can carry with you in your car or on the subway, and that soldiers can carry in their uniforms as they face the enemy.

I try to keep a couple with me even when traveling, as I frequently encounter Armed Forces members in airports who have a need to talk to a priest. Having these to put in their hands has been a blessing. Support from our fellow Catholics on the home front speaks volumes to us here! Since being here, I've had 3 Sailors and Marines approach me wanting to become Catholics. These latter will be going from New Orleans to Iraq.

These men and women were extremely grateful, and, when I ran across various troops a day or two later, all had the Prayer Book with them. Archbishop Sheen clearly is continuing his work. God bless you all for helping him to do so. Categories Menu All Products. Audio Books. Devotion and Spirituality. Doctrine and Theology. Fatima and Our Lady. Gifts and Specialty Products.

Wartime Prayerbook

The great French preacher Lacordaire once said the vocation of a soldier is next in dignity to the priesthood, not only because it commissioned him to defend justice on the field of battle and order on the field of peace, but also because it called him to the spirit and intention of sacrifice. Generally, respect for groups varies with their number; the more numerous they are, the less they are esteemed. No group equally large is so revered. It is their high calling to the defense of justice and freedom that makes them loved. Life is a battle. And take also the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. If the Cross of our Savior was a proof that there was something wrong in man that could be righted only by a sacrificial death, why should not this war be to me a proof that there is something so wrong with the modern world that it can be righted only by my sacrificial life?
