Bishop Fulton John Sheen was born on this day in 1895.
Bishop Sheen was an Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Church. He was known for his work on television and radio. In June 2012, Pope Benedict XVI recognized a decree from the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, stating that Bishop Sheen lived a life of “heroic virtues.” This is a major step towards beatification. Bishop Sheen is now referred to as “Venerable.”
Bishop Seen died on December 9, 1979. He was 84.
365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.
So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.
This time graphics and commentary are included. You can buy today’s print here.
