Fulton Sheen's Therese

Among the multitude of admirers of St Therese (whose birthday was yesterday) may be found not a few famous names, including Archbishop Fulton Sheen (1895-1979). His radio and TV talks in 1950s America together with his numerous publications brought him great celebrity in many countries. He was a very gifted communicator of the faith. I have in my possession a book of his sermons on Therese. One of the fascinating points he makes about her in one of his sermons is that her Story of a Soul is saturated with quotes from the Bible. He says he has found one hundred and seven quotations from the Old Testament and two hundred and fifty from the New Testament in her texts. Perhaps that is one of the things that spoke to the Calvinist convert I mentioned in yesterday's blog.
