Lent quickly approaches and many of us could still use a trusted guide for the holy season. Today we look at one beloved spiritual director, Ven. Fulton J. Sheen.
Today, Michael talks with Allan Smith about Fulton J. Sheen and how he can guide us through Lent. Allan is the is the Founder and Director of the Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Mission Society of Canada, as well as the creator of Bishop Sheen Today. Bringing his passion and love for Archbishop Sheen, Allan explores how the writings of Archbishop Sheen can help us confront our own sins throughout Lent. We also discuss how meditation on the Seven Last Words of Jesus can bring us into a deeper understanding of God’s love for all of us.
You can find out more about Fulton J. Sheen and Allan at his site, www.BishopSheenToday.com. He is also the editor of The Cries of Jesus from the Cross: A Fulton Sheen Anthology, which collects Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s complete writings and reflections on Christ’s last words.
