Fulton J. Sheen

Fulton Sheen

Unquestionably, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen was one of the most influential figures of the twentieth century. His Catholic Hour program was carried one of of the largest television networks assembled for any weekly telecast and his radio talks were carried by some 400 stations. One of the most inspiring orators of all times, he has preached in great cathedrals all over the world.

His newspaper columns were syndicated by some 82 papers and his books have gone through hundreds of printings. Countless readers have turned to his writings for inspiration and counsel. Like all fine writers, he is able to transmit to his readers the vitality and intellectual content of his discussions in language understandable to all.

In winter 2019, his beatification was announced, and subsequently delayed at the request of various prelates in the United States. Sheen's writing is forceful and energetic, as he is quite outspoken of the many evils that plague Western society. His books are incredibly challenging, engaging, and they will kindle that fire within you when it comes to your Catholic faith.
