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

Sadly, many American Catholics have no idea who Fulton Sheen was and have never heard of the television program: Life Is Worth Living. Over 50 years from its original broadcast, it is still considered some of the best "religious" programming. Whether you want to call the 30 minute weekly talk show "preaching" or ever religious, Fulton Sheen's message, the message of hope, tolerance, faith, and most importantly, the glory which is life...his message is forever timeless. Fulton never had guests come on stage to be instantly healed before your very eyes. Instead, his words touched the lives of the millions who watched then, and the millions who continue to listen and take in his words today. THE EWTN Cable Network airs Fulton's series ever so often. It is mu opinion, that Life is Worth Living is one of the best if not the best program the network has to offer their youth audience.
