Intimacies of Love

Bishop Fulton Sheen

On his famed Emmy Award winning “Life is Worth Living” primetime show (1952-1965), Bishop Fulton Sheen delivers a sermon in his classic oratorical style. Although reminiscent of another era when dramatic oratory was more in vogue, Sheen’s sermons remains an impressively concise reflection on God’s loving pursuit of humanity in this world. In this specific sermon, Sheen explores how God has revealed His own intimate desire to speak to, be seen by, and reach out to the longing hearts of every human person. In the end Sheen points to the sacramental touch of Christ, and invites us to enter into this eucharistic relationship with God and neighbor.
