Forty-two years ago today, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen died. He was the popular television host, preacher, and writer. If his canonization cause moves forward, December 9 might very well be his feast day in the church.
For the anniversary, the Sheen Center for Thought & Culture usually has an annual Sheen lecture — about him or with someone who is similar things as he did. Since Covid, it’s now become a little bit of a virtual tradition for me to interview someone. Today they debuted my conversation with Fr. Mike Schmitz from earlier in the week. He talks about his favorite Fulton Sheen books, what it’s like having had the No. 1 podcast in America during this year, and much more.
And if you don’t know Fr. Mike, his Bible in a Year podcast is transforming lives, according to testimony from National Review Institute’s Amanda Herbert, Fellowship for Catholic University Students NYU missionary Darin Howell, and many more. I interviewed him as someone making use of the media to share the Good News in clear and practical ways. And he gushed a little about his gratitude for Fulton Sheen along the way!
