More About 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. 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 customers think about Way to Inner Peace?
Yes, please do read this book; excellent, solid ... Feb 15, 2001
This book consists of 59 short essays that will assist the principled Catholic as she or he struggles in the whirlwind of the modern world. Written in 1954 or 1955, this observations and sententiae remain sharply relevant, even after nearly half a century.
Archbishop Sheen does not preach a gospel of evasion from moral absolutes, but neither is he a humourless rigorist. During his lifetime, through a ministry in the media of both print and television, he reached more souls than Cardinal Newman did. In "Way to Inner Peace," the believing Christian will find not only a challenge but perhaps a restoration to sanity and sanctity (arguably, the same thing).
A Must Read. Jul 19, 2000
This book is packed with valuable insight for those who are not afraid of looking into the mirror for a change. The book offers short chapters filled with wisdom on the ways of man. The language is simple enough for anyone to grasp, yet so lofty that the reader has no choice but to long for heaven on Earth and the peace that comes with it. I highly recomend this book to anyone looking solid spiritual reading which will lead to growth as a human being and as a child of God.
