For the Christmas List...

Baronius Press has an interesting series--"Sermon in a Sentence"--and one of the volumes is devoted to the late, great Archbishop Fulton Sheen.

I'm posting it because it might be of interest to you, but it's definitely of interest to me. From the Introduction:
Hundreds of short quotations taken from the writings of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen have been organized and classified by the Christian virtues of which they speak, and then arranged to complement the Rosary, proceeding from the first Joyful Mystery (The Annunciation, with its anchor virtue of humility) to the fifth Glorious Mystery (The Crowning of Mary, with its anchor virtue of devotion and love of Mary). The Luminous Mysteries, introduced by Pope John Paul II as an optional addition to the Rosary, are also included. For those who choose to use these excerpts for meditation while reciting the Rosary, we have placed a type ornament after the first ten quotes of each decade, to mark the end of a decade. Additional quotations follow for use with a Rosary or for private devotions or meditation. A selection of quotations on other spiritual topics of interest follows, bringing to the reader a sample of Sheen’s reflections on such subjects as prayer, the Church, the Mass, and the Priesthood.
 A $14.95 hardcover, to boot. WANT.
