Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen: Catholic Media's Greatest Star

2010-04-28

Catholic Archbishop Fulton Sheen was a popular preacher, TV personality, writer and missionary.

In 1919, he was ordained a priest in Peoria, Illinois, and was later Auxiliary Bishop of New York and Bishop of Rochester. He died in 1979 at the age of 84.

Now Archbishop Sheen is being considering for sainthood.

“Archbishop Sheen stands up as a crusader for the Church and an example of what as you hear in the film what a true son of the Church is all about, what’s authentic about being a priest and a man of God.”

This documentary shows some humorous moments and anecdotes from his closest friends.

The Archbishop was also a famous radio and TV personality. His television series, “Life is Worth Living” had an audience of more than 30 million.

“Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen: Servant of All” is a one hour documentary that shows the Archbishop’s compassion towards the sick and his love of the priesthood.

“Well almost everywhere that we show the film people weep during the film because they realize whether they’re being introduced to him for the first time or being reintroduced that this is a man that the world needed then but needs even more now especially in the time that we are living in right now with the effort of criticism that’s being waged against the Church for both valid reasons as well as in a lot cases for very invalid reasons.”

The Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Foundation hopes awareness and support of the film will further his cause for canonization.

If he is proclaimed a saint he’ll be the first American bishop saint and the first saint to have been a major media personality with an Emmy award.
