On Good Friday, 1979, a television crew visited St. Agnes Church in New
York to tape a news piece. They were so enthralled by the speaker, Bishop
Fulton J. Sheen, they taped his entire talk. This long lost tape has now
been found and digitally re-mastered. It is titled "His Last Words."
Bishop Sheen died later that year.
This is the Bishop at his best: in a pulpit, not a TV studio. It is a
new Sheen experience seen here for the first time. The Bishop's wit and
wisdom transcend the years. His words remain a masterpiece of sacred prose
"It is not a unity of religion we seek but a union of religious people.
We may not be able to meet in the same pew, but we can meet together on
our knees as Christians."
Rev. Billy Graham said of Sheen, "I greatly admired his ministry
and his focus on Christ." Dr. Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral
wrote, "He was the first teacher from whom we all learned."
Actor Martin Sheen chose his name from Bishop Sheen. The Holy Father used
his tapes to practice English. The Bishop wrote 95 books and countless
newspaper and magazine articles. He was an Emmy winner for his television
program, "Life is Worth Living."
For today's troubled church, Bishop Sheen is a friend many are seeking
to help guide their spiritual journey. With him, we see each sunrise as
God's radiant promise that life is worth living. "God love you." 500848D

"We may not be able to meet in the same pew but we can all meet together
on our knees in prayer."

from the Diocese of Peoria to open the canonization Cause for Fulton John

your dreams can imagine."

-Fulton John Sheen 1895-1979
Fulton J. Sheen: extraordinary priest, author of some sixty books, pastor of a radio and television congregation numbering
thirty million, and surely the most loved and celebrated Catholic prelate of this century. Here, in Sheen's own words, are
reflections from his childhood, his years in seminary, his academic career, his extensive travels, his media stardom, and
more. A wealth of anecdotes enriches this wide-ranging memoir--stories from his experiences as an orator and preacher, from
his many papal audiences, from Vatican Council II. The text is enhanced by a wonderful assortment of photographs that capture
the flavor and spirit of Sheen's illustrious life. In addition, there is a complete chronology as well as a bibliography of
the vast canon of Fulton J. Sheen's work. Sheen's legacy to the world is indeed a rich one. Fans young and old will cherish
this autobiography for years to come. For it is, without doubt, a lasting testament to a life that was worth living. "...
an excellent combination of nostalgia, history and a challenge to present-day Christians." -- Our Sunday Visitor "...
one of the more remarkable lives of our time ... the world is spiritually richer for the life and career of Fulton J. Sheen.
Read the book!" -- Best Sellers "The story of the late Bishop Sheen is a tremendous inspiration."
