I saw a splendid show on EWTN, in which Abp Sheen recounted his efforts to convert a hardened sinner on his deathbed -- all his repeated visits, prayer, attempts at persuasion -- apparently to no avail until a chance word of his seemed to have led to repentance . . .

But his final word was -- just imagine how God wants this conversion and repentance for every human being and works for it through all eternity . . .

Incredibly effective speaker. And that mellifluous Irish accent!

Huh? Sheen was born and raised in Illinois.

The good Bishop was indeed of Irish descent, and did grow up in Illinois. I tip my hat to you, that you can hear the silver tongue of Ireland in his voice.
