A truly gifted speaker …

Fulton Sheen is that old school catechist instructor who speaks with a rare combination of stern authority, expert knowledge and yet a wonderful sense of humour. His story is great fun to read – who would have thought a bishop on late night tv, speaking without notes, could end up with a 10million strong viewing audience? His acceptance speech, upon winning an Emmy, is a bit of a classic – “I feel it’s time to pay tribute to my four writers; Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.” This is a link to some of his audio covering basic Catholic catechism… what inspires me is it’s very human accessibility… it feels like everyone can relate to what he is saying …
