For example, from this book, regarding the Passion:
"They now brought three charges against Our Lord in order to force Pilate to hear the case:
"'We have discovered that this Man is subverting the loyalty of our people, forbids the payment of tribute to Caesar, and calls Himself Christ the King" [Luke 23:2].
"Still no mention of blasphemy; the charge now was sedition; Christ was unpatriotic. He was too worldly, He was too political, He was anti-Caesar, anti-Rome.... Every word was a lie. If Christ had been a ringleader of sedition, or if there had been any signs of insurrection connected with His name, Pilate would have heard of it. So would have suspicious Herod; but never had the slightest complaint been brought against Him previously. As for the charge that He had failed to give tribute to Caesar, only a short time before when an attempt had been made to entrap Him in the temple, He had told the people 'to render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's'. The third charge - that He was king - was not that He had made himself King of the Jews, but rather that He was a king that challenged Caesar. This too was a lie, because when the people sought to make Him that kind of king, He fled into the mountains alone" [pp. 407-408].
In a phone conversation with my oldest son this morning, I told him Bishop Sheen's story, and that his body is in a crypt at St Patrick's Cathedral in NY City. We agreed that the next time my wife and I visit my son in Long Island, we'll go with him to St Patrick's Cathedral. I plan beforehand to go to confession, so that I will be able to receive Holy Communion at St Patrick's. Yes, I found the Life of Christ to be miraculously inspiring, strongly reinforcing the notion that in Bishop Sheen's own words, LIFE IS WOTH LIVING!
