A"must" for anyone in search of deep life meaning

Would you listen to Life Is Worth Living, Part 1 again? Why?

Yes. To better understand my Catholic Faith.

Any additional comments?

Archbishop Sheen is a recent "discovery" for me and I am grateful for this gift. I decided to listen to most of his audiobooks available. Highly recommended to anybody seeking the sens of life and faith. There were moments I felt uncomfortable with his "emotional" and "stormy" tone but when he spoke calmly, which was most of the time, I just could listen to him non-stop. Very inspirational. Additionally, I have confidence in this man who spend every day at least 1 hour on Adoration for over 56 years. So grateful for this man, his testimony and the Wisdom he shares with us.

Classic inspiration

It is an old enhanced recording of the Archbishop who was an American TV phenomenon in the 50s. The message is as important today as it was then. It gives a clear insight into human nature and the challenges of life, with a path to fulfilment. It gives a good overview of Christian teaching and explains the purpose and meaning of life.

Amazing audiobook!!!!

What made the experience of listening to Life Is Worth Living, Part 1 the most enjoyable?

He is a great teacher very articulate and poetic and I've learned more about the Catholic faith then I ever knew and not just the Catholic faith. You don't have to be catholic to read this I'm not.

What did you like best about this story?

Everything but I liked how he explained the veneration to Mary and why the Catholic Church honors her.

Which scene was your favorite?

Every chapter was great. I can't decide

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes and all of the above. It made me laugh and cry and think about things in a way is never have

Any additional comments?

Buy the book. You won't regret it.

My entire life has changed. Thank you ArchBishop Fulton Sheen.

ArchBishop Fulton Sheen has enlightened me to so many things that I thought I knew, yet I really did not. He showed me that despite our human ways, we are so loved by God. ArchBishop is one of my earthly heroes.

Undeniable truth from a future Saint

Listen to this series as often as you can. Any lack of faith will be gone. An excellent defense of the faith. I would love to hear an atheist or agnostic debate the Venerable Sheen on his faith and The Church in particular. What a privilege to hear these talks. Enjoy the gift.

Wonderful

Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen has long been a favorite apologist/evangelist of mine. I remember watching him every week on tv when I was a young child. He was humorous, theatrical, entertaining, and taught the truths of the faith. I remember him always at his chalkboard and he never began writing until he first wrote the initials: JMJ, for Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. He was a wonderfully gifted orator. This is a great collection of his talks, which he always gave without a written script! Magnificent!

The Everlasting Way

The Venerable and Most Reverend Fulton Sheen, a treasure of the Roman Catholic Church, is the 20th Century's John the Baptist, clearly and rationally explaining the straight and unencumbered path of Christ, the only Way to a blessed eternity.
