More About Fulton J. Sheen

Fulton J. Sheen Fulton John Sheen (born Peter John Sheen, May 8, 1895 – December 9, 1979) was an American archbishop of the Roman Catholic Church known for his preaching and especially his work on television and radio. His cause for canonization for sainthood was officially opened in 2002. In June 2012, Pope Benedict XVI officially recognized a decree from the Congregation for the Causes of Saints stating that he lived a life of "heroic virtues" – a major step towards beatification – so he is now referred to as "Venerable".

Ordained a priest of the Diocese of Peoria in 1919, Sheen quickly became a renowned theologian, earning the Cardinal Mercier Prize for International Philosophy in 1923. He went on to teach theology and philosophy as well as acting as a parish priest before being appointed Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of New York in 1951. He held this position until 1966 when he was made the Bishop of Rochester from October 21, 1966 to October 6, 1969, when he resigned and was made the Archbishop of the Titular See of Newport, Wales.

For 20 years he hosted the night-time radio program The Catholic Hour (1930–1950) before moving to television and presenting Life Is Worth Living (1951–1957). Sheen's final presenting role was on the syndicated The Fulton Sheen Program (1961–1968) with a format very similar to that of the earlier Life is Worth Living show. For this work, Sheen twice won an Emmy Award for Most Outstanding Television Personality, the only personality appearing on the DuMont Network ever to win a major Emmy award.[clarification needed] Starting in 2009, his shows were being re-broadcast on the EWTN and the Trinity Broadcasting Network's Church Channel cable networks.[5] Due to his contribution to televised preaching Sheen is often referred to as one of the first televangelists.

Fulton J. Sheen was born in 1895 and died in 1979.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A great book that will challenge any reader.  Dec 1, 1999
In this delightful book, Bishop Fulton J. Sheen attempts to accomplish one goal: to show that Jesus of Nazareth is the Word become flesh, that He is the personification of Truth, and that this Truth is perserved and proclaimed in the Catholic Church. The outline of his book is the life of Christ, but this book is not a retelling of Christ's life; rather, Sheen uses the events of Christ's life as a stepping stone to enter into beautiful, yet challenging reflections on the situation of the modern world. For example, in Chapter Two, Sheen sees the shepherds and wise men who visited the Divine Babe as symbols of those who are able to approach Christ: those who are truly simple, because they know that they know nothing, and those who are truly wise, because they know that they don't know everything. Thus, those of the modern world that are not simple enought or learned enough, i.e., those who think that they know something, will never find Christ. Consequently, this method allows Sheen to enter into deep meditations that will challenge every reader.

If any one is wondering why I gave the book only four stars and not five, it is simply because, at certain times, the book is dated. Sheen wrote the book in 1934, and the reader needs to keep this in mind, because Sheen will enter into a polemic against one intellectual trend or another that was prevelant during the first half of the 1900's (e.g., Liberal Protestantism). Of course, the book can't help but being dated, and it doesn't take away from the overall quality of Sheen's work. Thus, the four star rating must be taken with a grain of salt, because other than this "historical fact," the book is wonderfully profound. Sheen not only accomplishes his goal, but the reader will walk away from the book with a deep sense that the Eternal Galilean is eteranlly present in His Church.
