He was ordained in 1919 and went on to become one of the best known and greatly loved priests in modern times.
He wrote 96 books and hundreds of articles and columns. He broadcast numerous radio and television programs. People of all faiths watched him on television because he spoke to everyone. They always waited with joy for his goodbye, his blessing — "God Love You." In October of 1979, Pope John Paul II said to Bishop Sheen, "You have written and spoken well of the Lord Jesus.
