Every now and then you meet a person whose life blows your mind.
I recently met that guy while in Israel.
His name is Msgr. Hilary Franco, a priest of 64 years and unlike anyone you’ve ever encountered.
He’s a living treasure-trove of knowledge spanning the last six decades of Church history.
But it’s his personal history that wows.
(You can read all about it in his incredible memoir Bishop Sheen: Mentor and Friend.)
What makes his life so special?
Only the fact that he lived and worked very closely for years with two of the most incredible Catholics in the history of the modern Church – Pope St. John Paul II and soon-to-be Blessed Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.
And boy, does he have stories. And you’re about to hear some of them. For example:
- How Sheen prepared for his Emmy Award winning television show
- The secret identity of the Angel erasing the blackboard on the Life is Worth Living (Sheen’s program that had 40 million viewers…a week!)
- The beautiful encounter between Venerable Fulton Sheen and St. John Paul II
- Some inside scoop on Vatican II
And while he’s lived quite the life. Msgr. Franco isn’t not done yet!
He currently represents the Vatican at the United Nations and is helping promote the Catholic faith around the world.
This guy is a total dynamo and you’re going to love him. Enjoy!
P.S. Doors re-open to the world’s largest online school of Catholic spirituality at the end of summer 2019!
