When  we  look  back  over  a  life

that  is  rather  full, 

we  recognize  how  much  we  owe

to  the  Good  Lord.

But  next  to  God,   on  this  earth,

I  owe  what  I  am  to 

The  Catholic  University  of  Louvain,  Belgium. 

(Katholieke  Universiteit  LeuvenKULeuven).

​If  there  has  been  any  success  in  writing,

it  is  due  to  Louvain.

​If  there  has  been  any  success  on  television, 

it  is  due  to  Louvain.

​If  there  has  been  any  success  in  teaching,

it  too,  has  been  due  to  Louvain. "

New  York  Archbishop  Fulton  J.  Sheen's ​ (1895 - 1979) 

above  sentiments   about  his  formative  education  at  KULeuven

(Doctorate,  PhD  in  Philosophy)  are  shared  by  the  hundreds  of

 Louvain / Leuven - educated  priests  working  today  in  America  and  beyond.

The  American  College  (Seminary)  of  KULeuven  in  Belgium

has  served  a  154 year  mission  of  sharing  Louvain's  philosophical

 and  theological  wealth  with  its  Catholic  Church  in  the  United  States

 through  its  intensive  programs of  seminary  formation  for  philosophers,

 pre-theologians,  and  theologians.

Fulton J. Sheen:    a  world-renowned  theologian,  philosopher,  author,

professor,  and  a  parish priest.   He  was  awarded  the  Cardinal  Mercier  

Prize  for International  Philosophy  in  1923.

Sheen  was  an  American  Archbishop  in  New  York  and  Archbishop of the Titular See of Newport Wales;  well-known for  his books,  television  and  radio  work.

For 20 years,  he  hosted  the radio program " The  Catholic  Hour (1930 - 1950) 

before  moving  on  to  television,   Life  is  Worth  Living "   (1951 - 1957); 

and  the  syndicated   " The  Fulton  Sheen  Program "  (1961 - 1968).​

He  won  an  Emmy  Award  for  Most  Outstanding  Television  Personality.

 Fulton  John  Sheen's   cause  for  canonization  for sainthood  was  officially opened  in  2002,    so  he  is  now  referred  to  as  a   Servant  of  God.
