Joan Sheen was happily growing up with her family in Illinois when her uncle Father Fulton offered the opportunity of a lifetime: to attend a private school in New York City. With the blessing of her parents, she eagerly accepted, and Fulton Sheen became a second father, a role model, and a lifelong friend. In this memoir, Joan describes many formative experiences she had with Fulton Sheen–from shopping for a winter coat to meeting Al Smith, the governor of New York. She fondly recollects how her uncle guided her courtship, helped her and her new husband find an apartment, and baptized their children. The Sheen that Joan presents, however, is not only a polished television personality, but a man of prayer, generosity and missionary zeal who interacted with countless people from all walks of life. In one story after another, she illustrates that this great man’s chief concern was sharing the mercy of God with everyone. Paper.
