Feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of the page if you have any thoughts on what these 3 celebrities have to say about faith.
There will be 3 celebrities each day and today we are delighted to reveal that our 'Famous 3' are:
Tommy Burns, Martin Sheen and Celine Dion
In 1989 the Celtic footballer wrote three dedications in his book 'Twists and Turns, the Tommy Burns Story'. One to his wife Rosemary, another to Celtic supporters and another to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
He wrote: 'To our Blessed Lady. My thanks for carrying me through all the hard times and keeping my feet on the ground on the many great times - your servant.'
On returning to the Catholic faith after a heart attack:
"It's always a crisis that brings you back. And we begin to ask these two fundamental questions, if you're gonna reflect on your life and take serious responsibility for it; who am I? Why am I here? And you reflect on those. I damn near died; I had the last rites.
I started going to Mass again but it was out of fear and apprehension that I would die....and so it was another four years that I actually committed to come back. I came back to the Church of Vatican II, which I didn't have a clue had gone on in my absence."
"I think God has given me something to work with, a voice, and I'm just trying to serve the lyrics and the music to get messages through."
Look out for another 3 tomorrow!!
