Stoned To Death With Popcorn

It's a pity that the beatification process of Fulton J. Sheen - the remarkable human being, Catholic, famous preacher, archbishop and most of all - faithful follower of Christ - has been stalled by two disputing dioceses in USA. Hopefully, they will resolve quickly their differences and the process will come to its completion.

As we await it with great anticipation, let's remind ourselves some of his most famous quotes (click here). I must admit cheekily, that my favorite quote, certainly one of his most popular, is this:

Hearing nuns' confessions is like being stoned to death with popcorn.”

Somehow, being a Catholic priest and a long-time confessor of nuns of numerous congregations, both  in active and contemplative service of the Church, I can attest to the truth of this quote!
