My entire life has changed. Thank you ArchBishop Fulton Sheen.

ArchBishop Fulton Sheen has enlightened me to so many things that I thought I knew, yet I really did not. He showed me that despite our human ways, we are so loved by God. ArchBishop is one of my earthly heroes.

Wonderful

Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen has long been a favorite apologist/evangelist of mine. I remember watching him every week on tv when I was a young child. He was humorous, theatrical, entertaining, and taught the truths of the faith. I remember him always at his chalkboard and he never began writing until he first wrote the initials: JMJ, for Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. He was a wonderfully gifted orator. This is a great collection of his talks, which he always gave without a written script! Magnificent!

Undeniable truth from a future Saint

Listen to this series as often as you can. Any lack of faith will be gone. An excellent defense of the faith. I would love to hear an atheist or agnostic debate the Venerable Sheen on his faith and The Church in particular. What a privilege to hear these talks. Enjoy the gift.

The Everlasting Way

The Venerable and Most Reverend Fulton Sheen, a treasure of the Roman Catholic Church, is the 20th Century's John the Baptist, clearly and rationally explaining the straight and unencumbered path of Christ, the only Way to a blessed eternity.

Excellent sound quality for restored audio records

I am too young to remember Bishop Fulton Sheen when he was on the radio and television so I was very happy to find out that his early recordings had been remastered and put out as a series of audiobooks. This is part one of two for this series and is very good. Bishop Sheen explains the basics of the Catholic faith and does it very clearly. Some of his stories and language seem rather dated, but that just adds to the charm. I will be getting part two when I get paid again and intend to purchase some of his other recordings as well.

A"must" for anyone in search of deep life meaning

Would you listen to Life Is Worth Living, Part 1 again? Why?

Yes. To better understand my Catholic Faith.

Any additional comments?

Archbishop Sheen is a recent "discovery" for me and I am grateful for this gift. I decided to listen to most of his audiobooks available. Highly recommended to anybody seeking the sens of life and faith. There were moments I felt uncomfortable with his "emotional" and "stormy" tone but when he spoke calmly, which was most of the time, I just could listen to him non-stop. Very inspirational. Additionally, I have confidence in this man who spend every day at least 1 hour on Adoration for over 56 years. So grateful for this man, his testimony and the Wisdom he shares with us.

Classic inspiration

It is an old enhanced recording of the Archbishop who was an American TV phenomenon in the 50s. The message is as important today as it was then. It gives a clear insight into human nature and the challenges of life, with a path to fulfilment. It gives a good overview of Christian teaching and explains the purpose and meaning of life.
