Number 4:

Archbishop Fulton John Sheen

The treasure of clay who God molded into His chosen orator for modern times in conveying traditional teachings anchored on the Word and broadcast to the world in the early days of television

    Today, as we count down the TOP FIVE CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY, we bring you the 4th person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY. The voters chose Archbishop Fulton John Sheen, the dynamic orator and first television evangelist who took the country by storm for Jesus and His Blessed Mother Mary in the forties, fifties and sixties through his tremendously successful "The Catholic Hour" and then his famous "Life is Worth Living" series that reached millions. He was energized by his priestly dedication and daily one-hour vigils with Jesus in the Tabernacle and converted that into countless converts.

4.    Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

There can never be 'Heaven on earth.'

      They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but the words of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen have been known to launch a thousand images in one's mind, one of the ways this late luminary did so much to evangelize the faith. Because of the urgency of the times and because few there are today who possess the wisdom, simplicity and insight than the late Archbishop who touched millions, we are bringing you daily gems from his writings. The good bishop makes it so simple that we have dubbed this daily series: "SIMPLY SHEEN".

"Anxiety cannot be cured by a surrender to passions and instincts; the basic cause of our anxiety is a restlessness within time, which comes because we are made for eternity. If there were anywhere on earth a resting place other than God, we may be very sure that the human soul in its long history would have found it before this."

November 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   Dear children! Also today I call you to prayer. In this time of grace, may the cross be a sign-post of love and unity for you through which true peace comes. That is why, little children, pray especially at this time that little Jesus, the Creator of peace, may be born in your hearts. Only through prayer will you become my apostles of peace in this world without peace. That is why, pray until prayer becomes a joy for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.

"Jesus answered and said to them, 'I also will ask you one question, and if you answer Me this, I in turn will tell you by what authority I do these things. Whence was the baptism of John? from Heaven, or from men?' But they began to argue among themselves, saying, 'If we say, 'From Heaven,' He will say to us, 'Why then did you believe him?' But if we say, 'From men,' we fear the people, for all regard John as a prophet.' And they answered Jesus and said, 'We do not know.' Then He in turn said to them, 'Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.' "
