Not only does this fall mark the 30 reunion of Mike and my college graduation, (Go Broncos) but this December marks the 30th anniversary of the death of the Servant of God, Archbishop Fulton Sheen, 1895-1979. Why do I bring up Archbishop Fulton Sheen? Because this entry is dedicated to Pear.
Pear used to watch Bishop Sheen on television Sunday nights. This was a time when a Catholic priest was actually embraced and listened to for his values and morals. Bishop Sheen received an Emmy award for his television show Life is Worth Living which was shown on a small network, a show poised as a throwaway program, slotted against a very popular comedian, Milton Berle.
This was, as some would say, a more innocent time, hardly worth reminding the world of. But for the sake of those that might still want to be reminded of this more innocent and moral time here are a few moments with Archbishop Fulton Sheen. By the way Mr. Berle was genuinely innocent, wholesome and entertaining also. Those were the days!!
