As a young priest, Msgr. Hilary Franco worked closely with Archbishop Sheen from 1959-1967, sharing in his travels and trials, his joys and his sorrows, and his prayer life. Then for 12 further years, the two stayed in close communication by letter, phone and visits until Archbishop Sheen passed away in 1979. In an easy, conversational style, Msgr. Franco now shares his precious memories of this time. Read his first-hand accounts of:

the Archbishops friendships with many famous persons, including Bl. Mother Teresa
his conversions of well-known atheists and Communists
his sense of humor
his daily schedule, including daily prayer pauses with his assistants
his relationships with the poor and beggars
how the Venerable Archbishop convinced an alcoholic actress to go to Confession
his worldwide travels and conferences
his friendships with Popes John XXIII, Paul VI and John Paul II
how he saw his work at Vatican Council II, and some of his insights at that historical time
the inside story of his appointment to the diocese of Rochester, NY.
