About this item

Fulton Sheen shows you how to win a lasting victory over vice.

Fulton Sheen claims that since all seven deadly sins led Christ's enemies to nail Him to the Cross, we can find in the example of His suffering and death sure means to overcome each of those sins, plus the key to understanding — and to nurturing in our own soul — each corresponding virtue.

So, for example, in these pages filled with wisdom and hope, Blessed Sheen teaches us not only how to conquer our gluttony; he shows us how to satisfy our spiritual hunger. We learn not merely how to overcome pride; we discover what we must do to grow humble. From Christ's holy response to each of the seven deadly sins that led to His Crucifixion, Blessed Sheen draws a lesson in how you and I must deal with those same sins, whether we meet them in others or in ourselves.

Day after day, Christians struggle to do good, to avoid evil, and to take up with patience and love the crosses that threaten to crush them. For those of us who still know more of sin than sanctity, Fulton Sheen's revelation of the light that vice sheds on virtue affords a way to understand even better, and a means to attain it. If you abide by the holy counsel of these pages, enduring virtue will soon be yours: you will have achieved your own long-sought-after victory over vice.

Best Catholic author of our time!
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen is my inspiration and my life's guide when it comes to social or moral issues; he is a well of knowledge which runs deep. Just a few sentences can be life changing! Truly worth the time to read.

Excellent book, especially for Lent and Advent
Each chapter is about a 15 minute read, which makes it great for daily spiritual reading. Archbishop Sheen packs so much into this short book.

Very readable encouragement for modern times
This little book both shines light on the difficulties of sin and on the hope offered by Christ in his redemptive sacrifice. What an eye-opening and very encouraging read!

An outstanding guide to the spiritual life
I am old enough to remember watching Fulton Sheen's television show and have read other books he authored. But this book takes you on a tour of the sins that cripple our souls and points out the cause and remedy for each. Frequent reference is made to examples from the lives of Jesus and Mary. This is not a theology treatise, nor a shame game. It is a flood light showing you the inner workings of our human weaknesses. I believe that starting from the advice in this book, by way of humility and perseverance, prayer and sacraments, victory is possible.
