One of my all-time favorites, Bishop Sheen!
My mother and I would watch his show every week. He was a phenomenon unto himself. He was the only Catholic Prelate to have a weekly TV program on in prime time and it was very well watched. I loved his take on things and his presentations were fabulous, so much so that even a youngster like me could understand his message. Much of what he said formed the foundation of my faith, that and the very Traditionalist climate of the Los Angeles Diocese, under Cardinal McIntyre at the time and the Traditional Irish priests who taught me in Catholic Schools where the sisters of Charity and Providence taught me the basics.
Thanks for finding and posting this!

In the world it is called Tolerance, but in hell it is called Despair, the sin that believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing, and remains alive because there is nothing for which it will die
A democracy which makes or even effectively prepares for modern, scientific war must necessarily cease to be democratic. No country can be really well prepared for modern war unless it is governed by a tyrant, at the head of a highly trained and perfectly obedient bureaucracy

Its no wonder truth is stranger than fiction.
Fiction has to make sense
Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and not tried
