Bishop Sheen's 28 brief Advent meditations reflect on the Incarnation, birth and earthly ministry of Christ. Because most are only a paragraph long, they are a bit too general and lack the anecdotal specificity that drove many of Sheen's most famous sermons home. Still, the meditations on the "Divine Sense of Humor" and Jesus as "a rich person who became a poor man" are vintage Sheen, powerful in their very simplicity. The four weeks of Advent meditations are followed by reflections for the 12 days from Christmas to Epiphany. The book's final section offers a liturgy to adapt the reflections for group or individual prayer, complete with responsive readings, Psalms and hymns.

Advent and Christmas with Fulton J. Sheen edited by Judy Bauer is a collection of wisdom from Sheen’s books formatted as a devotional. Bauer breaks up the book in three parts: readings for Advent, readings for Christmas, and a format for night prayer and reading.
In the Readings for Advent, there are 28 days, since that is the longest Advent can be. Each day includes a Scripture passage taken from or related to the daily readings, a passage from one of Sheen’s books, and a prayer — I presume — written by Bauer. It is on two facing pages so it requires only a few moments each day.
Readings for Christmas follow the same format but there are of course only 12 days.
In the last part — Format for Night Prayer — Bauer presents the outline for using this book with the Liturgy of the Hours – Night Prayer.
I found Bauer’s format to be easy to use and her selections of Sheen’s work to be excellent is helping me to consider the many mysteries that are presented during Advent and Christmas. For those who have never read any of Sheen’s work, this book gives a good introduction to his style and approach. I am looking forward to using this book again next Advent, and I would encourage you to consider it as well.
