Wartime Prayer Books

If you'd like to help donate Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen's "Wartime Prayer Book" to members of our military serving overseas, visit the Wartime Prayer Book site.

In 1943, Archbishop Fulton Sheen published a prayer book entitled The Armor of God. The world was caught in the storm of war, and uncertainty about the future was part of everyday life. Today our world has once again entered a time of the darkness and terror of war. There is a great need for hope, faith, courage, and charity. To help fill this need the Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Foundation has reprinted The Armor of God with the simple title The Wartime Prayer Book. The Wartime Prayer Book contains not only standard Catholic prayers, but also reflections on the dignity of serving one's country. Though it is compact, it examines such topics as Our Lady, the Eucharist, Prayer, and Encouragement. It is an invaluable resource to our soldiers, as well as a source of comfort to all people in a time of war.

A big "thank you" to Esther for the link!
