  • Finding True Happiness By Fulton J. Sheen, Are you perfectly happy, or are you still looking for perfect happiness Most people are still actively searching for true and lasting happiness, but are looking in the wrong places It s easy to be misled into believing that happiness is found in money, rank, or renown While these things are not inherently bad, and can in fact be used to do much good, they will, in the fiAre you perfectly happy, or are you still looking for perfect happiness Most people are still actively searching for true and lasting happiness, but are looking in the wrong places It s easy to be misled into believing that happiness is found in money, rank, or renown While these things are not inherently bad, and can in fact be used to do much good, they will, in the final analysis, not bring a happiness that endures.Once we realize that nothing less than a complete union with God will satisfy our souls, we will not let transitory things distract or disappoint us This is because then, according to Fulton Sheen, you put no hope in things than they can bear You cease looking for first rate joys where there are only tenth rate pleasures.In addition to addressing the topic of joy vs pleasure in Finding True Happiness, Fulton Sheen also helps us gain the right perspective on things such as loneliness and the secret of sanctity This brings us to our ultimate purpose, which is found in God alone Only by losing oneself in God, will we find our true selves and true happiness along with it.

    3.

    8. This book was given out at church and is beneficial to anyone no matter what your religion or even if you have no religion It is just a reminder to be content and not greedy, to listen and not be boastful, to have patience and not always rush, to have joy and not moodiness, to take time for leisure activities and not always work to get , , There are many very simple lessons that can go a long ways in anyone s life A very short 78 pages.


    9. 16 little lessons on how to find fulfilment in your life The recurring messages in this book reinforce the Beatitudes.Some sentences here made me laugh out loud since it was from a different era when men and women were just assumed to be completely different creatures But I tried to keep these sentences separated from the overall message.Easy to read in a sitting or two I did some underlining for easy reference later on.

    11. a fantastic overview of Fulton Sheen that speaks to the heart in a gentle and encouraging way A wonderful introduction to this man that I cannot wait to become a saint If you want to get a taster of his philosophy before you get into his meatier books, this is a great way to start

    13. Finding True Happiness is a conglomeration from different sources of writings by Fulton J Sheen about finding happiness Sheen understood well the human character and remedies to the struggles people have in life This book helps you reflect on yourself and improve if you so choose.


    14. Seventy eight pages of good reminders and insights Worth reading Contentment is not in contradiction to our endeavor to have our condition proved The lessons focus on the emotional sacrifice and less on physical sacrifice.


    15. A beautiful book that takes chapters from various books which Bishop Sheen has written Finding True Happiness consists, for Sheen, of some basic principals of human behavior which are not popular in today s American culture More the pity.
