Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Wilfrid Sheed, 80, son of Frank Sheed and Maisie Ward, R.I.P.:

Comments

Joe

Sheed wrote a pretty excellent book-length tribute to his parents, albeit slightly marred by his apparent late-in-life agnosticism. And Maisie Ward's books really deserve (IMHO) reprinting: Her ones on the Rosary, the New Testament, and her parents' advocacy for English Catholicism are all amazing in their encouragement, balance, and style. Also great is Frank's "The Church & I" and the compilations "Book of the Savior" and "Book of Mary." Just sayin'...

Mark Brumley

A sad story. What a talent that never really served the Church. He saw too much of its soft underbelly.

I don't know anything about his general disposition in his final days. One hopes for the best. Prayers forthcoming.

So much more to be said. But not now.

Tom

A Memorial Mass celebrating the life of the late Wilfrid Sheed will be held on Saturday, January 29, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. at Our Lady of the Valley Church in Sheffield, MA.
