Catholic Hour - SheenFulton Sheen

The Catholic Hour was produced in co-operation with The National Council Of Catholic Men.  The show opened with hymns (from various Catholic choirs) such as "Like The Dawning Of The Morning", "Hail, True Body Of The Lord", "Panis Angelicus", "Adoramus Te."  The Catholic Hour is an excellent religious and intellectual old time radio show

Many of the episodes featured heavy topics including communism, racism in America, and the role of the Catholic Church in government.  On the topic of interracial justice and equal rights, guest speaker Jerome Kerwin (sociology, University of Chicago): "The have equal rights as children in the house of the Lord."

The Catholic Hour featured different guest speakers on different topics.  Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen often hosted the program. Sheen is best known as the host of televisions' "Life Is Worth Living" in the 1950s and proclaimed, "We are at the end of a non-religious era."

    COMMENTS

    Recently, I purchased a number of religious recordings featuring some of the nation's most influential spiritual figures during the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. "The Catholic Hour," hosted by Archbishop Fulton Sheen whose impeccable diction mesmerized audiences, provided not only church teachings but commentary on global Communism, international events and American values. His sermons are classic pre-Vatican II presentations. Anyone with an interest in Roman Catholicism before 1962 would note the differences. Not only are these recordings inspirational for many, they also deliver an understanding of the international climate. Whether you agree with Sheen or not, the recordings serve up a great listening experience! Al

    I love anything pre-Vatican II; my mother adored Sheen. I first noticed him when I was in my late teens, back in the early 1970s. I think that the Church shot itself in the foot with Vatican II; what had been as perfect a Church as possible, what with its clouds of incense and Latin liturgy, instead became a bland ghost of itself with much of the color bled out, leaving behind a bizarre thing which resembled Anglicanism, and not High Church, either, but Middle Church.
