WHO IS CHRIST? Herein lies the heart of the matter.
Listen to 16 meditations on the Offerer and the Offered, the Priest, the
Victim, the Lamb slain from all Eternity and much more. Archbishop Fulton Sheen
shows how Christ so loved us that He suffered in Mind, Body, and Spirit for our
sins as if He had committed them Himself, and he continues His Incarnation,
along with Calvary to this very day.
This set of spiritual talks is Sheen at his best, a retreat master who, as
always, offers new insight into eternal and immutable absolutes.
1 - The Church and the World - Who Is Christ? Sheen offers his spiritual
insight into eternal and immutable absolutes which affect the Church and the
2 - Christ, Priest and Victim - Reflections on the Holy Sacrifice of the
Mass wherein Christ interposed His Eternal Sacrifice between our sins and His
3 - Sin and Guilt - Ours is an age which denies sin: that abu5e of
freedom which estranges us from God, our neighbor and ourselves. "Without the
shedding of bIood, there is no remission of sin."
4 - Kenosis – Emptying - Christ so loved us that He suffered in Mind,
Body and Spirit for our sins as if He had committed them Himself, emptying
Himself, making Himself nothing, enduring "…the bitterness of separation to the
last extremity of Golgotha."
5- The Daily Holy Hour - Archbishop Sheen offers a beautiful unfolding of
the spiritual benefits of the Holy Hour.
6 - Continuing the Incarnation - The Incarnation of Our Lord and how
Christ can be the center of our spirituality as we make our way through this
world, this Drama of Redemption.
7 - Continuing Calvary - The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as a Drama of
Redemption and why Christ Crucified must always be the center of our
spirituality as we make our way through this world.
8 - Zealous Fools for Christ - Thoughts on the Priesthood and the ways to
respond to St Paul's advice to become “Fools for Christ.”
9 - The Holy Spirit - A look at the image of the Blessed Trinity and the
work of the Holy Spirit within that Unity. How the Holy Spirit sanctifies the
Mystical Body of Christ.
10 - The Church, The Body of Christ - The Church as the Mystical Body of
Christ and the Victimhood which accompanies the Priesthood.
11 - Satin and Evil - Exposes the work of Satin in the world and the
confusion which results. Evil exists whether we acknowledge it or not.
12 - Discipleship and Betrayal (Judas) - We reminded that Judas was a
CHOSEN Apostle, but still he betrayed Our Lord with a kiss.
13 – The Woman I Love (Mary) Part I - The role of the Blessed Mother in
our Salvation through the Passion of her Son and her role as Mother to all of
us: "Woman, Behold thy son."
14 - The Woman I Love – Concluded - The Blessed Mother in our Salvation
and her role as Mother to all of us: "Woman, Behold thy son."
15 - Betrayal and Forgiveness (Peter) - The Apostle Peter also denled
Christ; but his sorrow and repentance led to Forgiveness and Sanctity, as
contrasted with the betrayal of Judas and his lack of love.
16 - The Mass: Christ's Sacrifice - In the drama of Holy Mass we go back
to Calvary in three acts – Offertory, Consecration, and Communion – and
experience the continuation of the Priest-Victimhood of Christ. The conclusion
of a magnificent series.
