Before Mother Angelica and EWTN; before Protestant tele-evangelists, there was one man on the airwaves preaching Christ. This man is now closer to sainthood. He was elevated to Venerable by the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI. This man is none other than Archbishop Fulton Sheen.
He would appear on the primitive television sets of the 50's in full abito piano, something that is lacking in today's clergy which should be brought back to show the dignity of the priesthood.
Archbishop Sheen spoke the truth on tv and radio. He did not hide anything and his words are valid even in today's world which has fallen greatly in morals since the 40's and 50's.
May Archbishop Sheen pray for us all. May he pray for America and the Catholic Church.
