There are powerhouses and then there are powerhouses! Archbishop Sheen was the italicized kind.
While a Youtube video with a million views is considered wildly popular, Archbishop Sheen played to many millions every week!
Is your Inbox full? Sheen received 8,500 old school, hand-written letters every week.
So let’s just say he’s easily one of the top evangelists of the modern (or any) era.
But it didn’t just happen. He had a secret weapon.
No credit card. No strings. No nothing…except incredible spiritual formation that will set your soul on fire!
“Beyond what I ever could have imagined!”
That weapon was a deep prayer life that took a very specific form.
And it’s something we can and should emulate.
So today on the Art of Catholic podcast, I invited Catholic speaker and board member of the Archbishop Fulton John Sheen Foundation, Allan Smith, to help us peek into the prayer life of this (Lord-willing) soon-to-be saint.
Some of the things Allan and I discuss include:
- Where the canonization process of the Archbishop currently stands
- The personal prayer life of Archbishop Sheen
- The Secret Power of Fulton Sheen’s Holy Hour
- How a Holy Hour Makes Reparation for Sin
- How a Holy Hour Provides Powerful Spiritual Protection
- How Archbishop Sheen connected the last words of Christ to the Our Father
- What Fulton Sheen would say about today’s lack of belief in the Real Presence in the Eucharist
- and a lot more!
This is a pretty powerful and inspiring episode. Enjoy it and then share it!
