his writings in one great journey of advancing all the more in holiness
and the love of God.

and theologian who wrote numerous books and articles about the Faith.
Behind the Emmy Award-winning TV personality was a man of deep piety who
spent an hour in Eucharistic adoration every day and whose apostolic
work was rooted in a profound interior life. His heroic virtue has been
officially recognized by the Holy See.
