The late Roman Catholic archbishop of Rochester who was most used in

ecumenical ventures into new evangelical circles. He was thought by some to

be a true evangelical believer. In his book, TREASURES IN CLAY, he gives

what he calls his spiritual secret. It is this: "On the day of my

ordination, I made two resolutions: (1) I would offer the Holy Eucharist

every Saturday in honor of the Blessed Mother to solicit her protection of

my priesthood; (2) I would spend a continuous Holy Hour every day in the

presence of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament" (Ed: this means a

consecrated Host).


From CATHOLIC DIGEST, May 1979. "WHY I AM A CATHOLIC by Sheen. All who are

`in Christ' form one body or Church or people of God because they are

vivified by...the Holy Spirit...and presided over by a visible head on

earth, who is the successor of the Mass the sacrifice of Christ

is prolonged."


From RELIGIOUS NEWS SERVICE, 12/11/79. "Evangelist Billy Graham said the

late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen `broke down many walls of prejudice between

Catholics and Protestants' during a long colorful career...`I count it a

privilege to have known him as a friend for over 35 years', said Mr.

Graham. 'I mourn his death and look forward to our reunion in Heaven.'"
