Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Open Retreat: 16 CD Set. An open retreat given to the clergy, religious and laity of the Diocese of Gary, Indiana in September of 1973. Never before released on CD, each disc is approximately 50 minutes. An AMAZING spiritual treasure for the times we are living in! Perfect for the priests, the youth, bible study groups, lay people, anyone is search of the truth and re-motivation of our faith. Fulton Sheen at his finest, extremely powerful delivery!
An ideal gift for priests: "The priests will drink deeply from this retreat" (quote by Archbishop Sheen from this CD series).
This retreat was organized by Bishop Andrew Grutka, first Bishop of Gary, Indiana, who was a friend of Archbishop Sheen. Both attended the Second Vatican Council, and both were from Illinois. He invited his friend Archbishop Sheen to address his priests in an open retreat for priests, religious and the laity in 1973.
We are directed and challenged as participants to grow and know our faith's depth and respond to Christ's call.
"Christendom is dead. We are no longer living in a Christian culture. Christianity is alive. Christianity is Christ, Christ is the Church." (Quote by Archbishop Sheen from this retreat, 1973.)
