The Worlds First Love: Mary, Mother of God by Fulton J. SheenEasily the best Catholic teacher in American History, Archbishop Fulton Sheen outdid himself in this classic work about Catholic devotion to Mary, Mother of God. Many of you are familiar with Bishop Sheen as the outstanding teacher who held primetime TV audiences in fascination during his 1950s and 60s show Life is Worth Living. But you may not be aware that Bishop Sheen as written a number of great books on Catholic teaching. And each of these books have the same outstanding arguments and excellent teachings that Bishop Sheen presented in his TV show.
The most amazing part of Bishop Sheens teaching is that he makes obscure theological points extremely relevant to the modern reader. He mixes humor in with excellent reasoning to create a book that is both enjoyable and convincing. Bishop Sheen explains to the reader why devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary is not just acceptable for the lover of God, but it is downright indispensable to having a full relationship with Christ. He explains how Mary was Jesus first and most devoted disciple, and how through her commitment to God she restored to mankind the kind of love that God created us to live out. Bishop Sheen ties in the nature of love with Marys love of Jesus. He shows us that a devotion to Mary will help us to love in a more pure way. And through her suffering he shows how Mary participated in the sacrifice of Jesus, the most beautiful act of love in the universe.
Before I saw this book on Amazon I was unaware that Bishop Sheen had ever written a book on Mary. After I read it, I am amazed that any Catholic should not read it too. This book is the best explanation of Marian devotion in print today. It is perfect for Catholics, for non-Catholics who are interested in Marian devotion, and for those non-Catholics who feel that Marian devotion is nothing more than a revived paganism. All of them will benefit greatly from this book. So, in short, I recommend this book to anyone and everyone!
