PRAISE FOR TREASURE IN CLAY
“Sheen...wrote of his sixty-year priesthood, from curate to bishop, with the same ability to simultaneously entertain and elucidate that made him a media star.”—Publishers Weekly
About the Author
Fulton Sheen (1895 – 1979) was one of the most prominent Catholic leaders in American history. He was bishop of Rochester, national director of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, a participant in the Second Vatican council, and television’s first religious broadcaster. He is author of numerous books, including Life of Christ, and his cause for canonization is currently under consideration.

Like most of his books, it is easy to read and full of great stories. Some of them are so good that they're hard to believe: he had a great confidence in the Divine Providence.
If you're considering buying this book: DO IT!
You will learn about him as well as the time and the world he lived in.....Very Good Read, either from a biographical sense, historical,
or just some personal thoughts from an extremely well educated man. As always he includes some nice antidotes to keep you amused. We would all be very lucky to have known him while he lived. Don't miss reading this one, now that he is gone.
This is the first time I have learned about his background and life. So much to read in between the lines as well as all the text.
I believe Bishop Sheen used his extensive education to help everyone he spoke to. He did not flaunt it for the sake of gaining admiration. It is easy to see that by the many lives he affected with the help of the grace of the Lord which he was so attuned to.
There are many photographs to see, which will remind you of many things if you are over 70 like I am.
