Fr. Andrew Apostoli
From 1951 to 1957, a bishop of the Catholic Church ruled the television air waves with a program called, "Life is Worth Living."
Catholics, Protestants, Jews, and other non-Christians gathered 'round their televison sets every Sunday evening as this statesman and prophet, priest and preacher covered a range of topics as diverse as philosophy and Catholic teaching, politics and contemporary culture, the plights of the working class and Communism.
His name was Fulton J. Sheen, a man equally at home with film stars, auto mechanics, princes of the Church, and school children. Now a cause has been put forth for his canonization.
The postulator for his cause, Father Andrew Apostoli, was ordained by Bishop Sheen and shares his personal recollections about this amazing bishop and why he believes Archbishop Sheen is a saint for our times.
