They used to run old tapes of Bishop Sheen's TV show on EWTN (maybe still do). He was the original Great Communicator.

I saw a splendid show on EWTN, in which Abp Sheen recounted his efforts to convert a hardened sinner on his deathbed -- all his repeated visits, prayer, attempts at persuasion -- apparently to no avail until a chance word of his seemed to have led to repentance . . .

But his final word was -- just imagine how God wants this conversion and repentance for every human being and works for it through all eternity . . .

Incredibly effective speaker. And that mellifluous Irish accent!

He was well loved in our family. It was a miracle that we would stop fighting amongst ourselves to sit down and watch his show. For that alone, he gets my vote for beautification.

FYI, if anyone is interested

I obtained the audio files of his Life is Worth Living series. Each last about 25 minutes or so.

There is a link on the official site where you can download them for a buck a piece (there are 50 of them). Or, they can be obtained in real audio from an EWTN server, although the audio quality of the real audio set is not that great.

Lastly, you can order the 25 CD set (two talks per CD) from the link off the official site for abour $85.

If you buy them, you have to figure a portion of the the money might help fund the cause.

The audio set I have is excelent..they must have remastered them. I got them in mp3 format from a link on the web that is now dead, but I'm gonna buy them from the official website to make it allright. They're good for ipods and such.."Godcasts" thay call 'em. Good to listen to if your doing mindless work throughout the day.
