Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen mesmerized audiences. He was not afraid to speak the truth. More importantly, people were not afraid to hear it.
His inspirational American television series, Life is Worth Living ran on the Dumont Television Network from February 12, 1952, to April 26, 1955, then on ABC until April 8, 1957. Archbishop Sheen’s talks are timeless and prophetic such as one of his talks transcribed below that addresses the world we live in today.

This story happened 21 years ago between Pbro José Rodrigo López Cepeda and a young altar server named Gabriel. The priest stated on his Facebook page: “It has been published on many platforms is no longer mine.

Today is the 850th anniversary of the martyrdom of Saint Thomas Becket on December 29, 1170. Thomas Becket was a statesman, a scholar, a chancellor, a priest, an archbishop, and a lion of religious liberty. Before the Magna Carta was drafted, before the right to free exercise of religion was enshrined as America’s first freedom in our glorious Constitution, Thomas gave his life so that, as he said, “the Church will attain liberty and peace.”
