There are four types of persons who miss their mark in this life. Some are lost through their own stupidity and thoughtlessness; a second type are lost through the carelessness of others; still others go astray by deliberate choice; and the fourth type are lost because they are blind to their own sinfulness and need. Each one of these types is addressed by Our Blessed Lord in his parables of the lost sheep, the lost coins, the prodigal son and the elder son. In his inimitable style and with his extraordinary insight, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen provides us with a lot of profound wisdom and guidance to help us in our daily lives. In 95 brief meditations, he covers every topic imaginable from sadness and doubt to teenage responsibility to the causes of violence, loneliness, forgiveness, and sympathy, to the way to ultimate blessedness. When these reflections were first published in 1965 the book immediately became a best seller. The message contained in its pages will be found to be as relevant today as it was back then.
