.- Basilica Press has announced the first new book by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen in over 25 years.

The book, Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s St. Thérèse: A Treasured Love Story, is a 187-page hardcover, gold-embossed commemorative edition including Archbishop Sheen's talks on St. Therese, 11 pages of biographical photos, and possibly the last letter the famous archbishop ever wrote.

Archbishop Sheen is considered by many to have been the twentieth century's greatest communicator.  His radio and television broadcasts were heard or viewed by millions each week, and his many books were usually bestsellers. 

The historic retreat on St. Therese was delivered in 1973 in Dublin, Ireland on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of her birth.  His talks examining the spirituality of the saint called the "Little Flower" became instantly popular.

Author and EWTN host Raymond Arroyo said of the new book: “There is only one Fulton Sheen, and here he is at his best: teeming with spiritual insight, filled with drama, and oh, so practical. It’s like going on a retreat with the master himself—a retreat I heartily recommend.”
