85.   Dr. Rosalie Turton:   Taking the message worldwide on a wing and a prayer

   The 85th person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY is Dr. Rosalie Turton, the founder of the 101 Foundation in Washington, New Jersey. After a teaching career in upstate New York colleges, she has devoted her life to teaching the messages Jesus and His Blessed Mother are conveying to God's children in these end times of the millennium. She has gone to great length to get the word out, like around the world three times with a fourth scheduled in the Jubilee Year 2000.

84.   Fr. Edward Flanagan:   Founder of Boys Town who never met a boy he didn't like

   The 84th person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY is Father Edward Joseph Flanagan, the Irish-born priest who saw a need to help those less fortunate, especially young orphaned and troubled boys in the early part of this century. The result was Boys Town in Omaha, Nebraska which today is a sprawling independent municipality on 900 acres as well as satellite sites around the world. His life and efforts were made famous in the film "Boys Town" in which Spencer Tracy won an Academy Award for his portrayal of Fr. Flanagan.

83.   J.R.R. Tolkien:   The Lord of Fantasy dedicated to Our Lord

    The 83rd person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY is John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, the Englishman whose imagination and love for his children and all of God's children motivated him to become the master of fantasy in the twentieth century, long before the modern fantasies of Jim Henson and his "Muppets" or George Lucas and his "Star Wars" trilogy. This Oxford professor and convert conveyed his spirituality in his works with a subtle subliminalism that cried out God exists. He has left his grandchildren and children everywhere young and old a legacy of fantasy that helps all decipher the difference between the forces of good and evil.
