Programs by Bishop Fulton Sheen
“Show me your hands. Do they have scars from giving? Show me your feet. Are they wounded in service? Show me your heart. Have you left a place for divine love?”
Venerable Fulton John Sheen was an American bishop of the Catholic Church known for his preaching and especially his work on television and radio. The cause for his canonization as a saint was officially opened in 2002.
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen was a master communicator with an unforgettable voice and ability to communicate the message of Christianity to all peoples. He was a Catholic priest with a tremendous knowledge of Catholic Theology, as well as all Christian denominations and world religions. He had a way of being very likeable and welcoming to all, no matter what your beliefs were. To Catholics, he was a saint of modern times. Though not yet canonized, he is considered one of the most important Catholics that God has put on this earth in the 20th Century.
In 1951 he began a weekly television program on the DuMont Television Network titled Life Is Worth Living. Filmed at the Adelphi Theatre in New York City, the program consisted of the unpaid Sheen simply speaking in front of a live audience without a script or cue cards, occasionally using a chalkboard.
