Storyline

The vast majority of the episodes were concerned with the moral aspects of the Catholic faith from the perspective of the natural law and philosophy. Less frequently the shows touched on some aspects of the Catholic faith or a topical matter. He often spoke directly to the viewer, establishing an intimacy with his audience which was unique. He often answered viewer mail. Bishop Sheen frequently used personal anecdotes and stories to illustrate his ideas. His conversational manner of speaking and his use home spun wisdom help to explain his ideas in a simple and accessible way. Written by gilbertogarzaiii

A Very Young Memory
26 April 2006 | by csclok53See all my reviews

I was born in Februrary 1953 and believe it or not, I do remember watching Bishop Sheen. Just about every Sunday morning, when I was a little older, I would watch him with my mom. I do remember Bishop Sheen and what he looked like. When I saw actor Martin Sheen on the "The Actor's Screening Room(?)" (can't remember the exact name of the show) on Sunday nights on "BRAVO!", he confirmed to me that is where he got his name. I often wondered for a long time if that was the case. I almost jumped off the couch after he said, years ago, he used to watch Biship Sheen on Sunday mornings back home in Ohio. For a long time, I had wondered if I was the only one who remembered Bishop Sheen, but I'm very happy to know I'm not.
