Still inspirational and educational after all of these years. I learn every time I listen to this amazing priest of God.
Wonderful video, as always with Bishop Sheen.
I hope his cause succeeds.
I’ve been slowly reading his autobiography, Treasure in Clay.
A couple of things I remember from it:
He says he prepares thoroughly and rehearses for his talks so that he needs no notes.
(And he always begins with a joke or two.)
Also he had some interaction with FDR, whom he says he greatly disliked. (He may have called FDR a liar.)
Gary…..Lately, I have begun to pray for him to intercede with our Blessed Trinity for my illness. You can see why I was surprised and loved “Morning Coffee” today!
My mother died when I was twelve and one of my fondest memories
is sitting on the living room floor with her and watching Bishop Fulton
H. Sheen! I think that was about 1952, I was 11 years old, and I think I
was a willing participant. Mrs. Dumer, it will be a joy for me to keep
you in prayer. May God bless you with His healing touch!
Nancy, thank you for your prayers. God bless your kindness.
Excellent post Gary. Can you tell me a little about Bishop Fulton Sheen? Perhaps some references?
Prayers on behalf of Mrs. Dumer.
