“Next to God … Louvain (Leuven)”

” 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 Leuven / KULeuven).

​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)
