My Uncle Fulton Sheen
Janel Rodriguez, Joan Sheen Cunningham
In this memoir, Joan describes many formative experiences she had with Fulton Sheen—from shopping for a winter coat to meeting Al Smith, the governor of New York. She fondly recollects how her uncle guided her courtship, helped her and her new husband find an apartment, and baptized their children and grandchildren. Sheen is most known for his popular television show, Life Is Worth Living.
The Sheen that Joan presents, however, is not only a polished television personality, but a man of prayer, generosity, and missionary zeal who interacted with countless people from all walks of life. In one story after another, she illustrates that this great man's chief concern was sharing the mercy of God with everyone.

Francis of Assisi: Messenger for Today's World
The author explores Francis from three perspectives: biographical, psychological and aesthetic. His book is innovative because he understands Francis through our new science of psychology and through the beauty of Bellini's masterpiece St. Francis in the Desert, the painting shown on the cover of the book.
For a psychological understanding Waldron employs Carl Jung's theory of individuation: the steps taken by Francis to become his True Self. He also employs Bellini's painting to shed light on St. Francis the mystic. Waldron also addresses Francis's poem The Canticle of the Creatures, offering an exegesis of the poem that also provides insights into the saint's life.
