Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen: Master Preacher, Master of the Air Waves, by Rev. John Baptist Ku, O.P.

I reccomend America's Bishop by Thomas Reeves,(author of A Question of Character, the life of J.F.K.) which is both sympathetic to his subject and completely honest. Despite a multitude of meritorious works, America's Bishop had a major fault of almost compulsive vanity (which was still discernible in his 70's). By the time he reached his 80's and was greeted by Pope John Paul II in St Patrick's Cathedral NY (1979), he seemed to have reached genuine humility which was not easy for him to attain. He died just weeks later. No doubt he is in heaven. But there are some holy people who DO briefly have a short stay over in the highest point of Purgatory.

Hi Carl. Given the interest in +Sheen here, may I ask readers to remember Paul, a 37-year-old father of 7 in our parish, with Stage 4 cancer? He and his family have a great devotion to Abp. Sheen (their youngest son is named Fulton) and, overnight it seems, they really, really, need prayers urgently.


I will pray for Paul right now.
