Bishop Fulton Sheen: From Small Town to Show Time
Driving down the streets of El Paso, Illinois, you will notice a few things. Located just north of Bloomington on Interstate 39, you can expect the handful of highway amenities like gas stations, fast food and hotel chains. There is one grocery store for the whole town. Corn and soybean fields extend out in every direction; central Illinoisans will pride themselves on having the most fertile soil in the world. You will see American made trucks, you will see quaint farmhouses, and if you venture a few blocks north of Main Street, you may come across St. Mary’s Catholic Church.

I can only imagine what St. John was thinking at the time. Especially when, after the year was up, the hermit just threw the stick away!
