Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

Location: Pennsylvania, United States

I was born into the Catholic faith. At 14, I was "born again" and found Jesus personally but lost His Church. After thirty years as an evangelical protestant, I have come full circle to find that He has been there all the time, in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I wish others to find the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith as I have found.

Pray For Us Servant of God Archbishop Fulton Sheen

(1952)
Today we mark the 30th anniversary of Archbishop Fulton Sheen's death in 1979. His cause for canonization is currently being put forth. His ministry spanned 60 years and he was a prolific writer, apologist, defender of Catholicism, philosopher, theologian, preacher, Emmy Award-winning televangelist and icon of religious programming in America. And not one scandal!
He was instrumental in the conversion of many famous people including Henry Ford II and Claire Booth Luce.

Archbishop Sheen, pray for us
that we too would be faithful in proclaiming the gospel
and defending the faith regardless of the circumstances we find ourselves in.

I've been reading Abp Sheen's classic Life Of Christ this Advent. It there was a list of "must haves" in one's library of spiritual reading, I think this would be a top candidate, great biblical theology written in a profound, yet readable way, as only Sheen could. Very moving. Apparently Mother Teresa always had a copy of the book with her - how's that for an endorsement?

I will have to ask for that for Christmas. Thanks Nancy. Like you said, an endorsement form Mother T is not too shabby!
