How come somebody didn't come up with this before?

A new website dedicated to the works of the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (1895-1979), author, preacher and radio and TV star from the 1940s to the 1970s, and even served as Archbishop of Rochester, NY, from 1966-69.

The website includes many free MP3 files of his talks; some videos; many text files of writings, articles, sermons and speeches; a complete listing of books that are for sale from, (more could be found on or; and some great photos of the archbishop from childhood to adult life.

Remarkably, what he had to say in the 1950s is very relevant today and his talks are heard on most Catholic radio stations and EWTN has some of his prime time television shows when he actually won an Emmy one year, beating out such stars as Milton Berle. In his acceptance speech at that awards dinner, the Archbishop stated simply, "I would just like to thank my writers, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John."
