You’ve probably heard of the Venerable Fulton J. Sheen,
who hosted the weekly NBC radio broadcast The Catholic Hour, reaching 4 million listeners, and the television show Life Is Worth Living, which had an audience of up to 30 million viewers. Time called him the first televangelist.
A prolific writer and philosopher, as well as Titular Archbishop of Newport, Wales, Archbishop Sheen was also dedicated to helping those in need, donating $10 million of his own earnings to charity. His faith touched millions and spread God’s word to all walks of life.
