What's my line? Archbishop Fulton Sheen and other notable videos

Fellow parishioner (and blogger too) Don Roberts posted this on Facebook where Archbishop Fulton Sheen appeared on a game show "What's my line?", a weekly panel game show (originally aired in the US from 1950 to 1967 according to wikipedia):

Archbishop Fulton Sheen in his last Good Friday homily, recorded in 1979 at St Agnes Church, New York.

Here is a Traditional Latin Mass filmed on Easter Sunday in 1941 at Our Lady of Sorrows church in Chicago. The film presents the ceremonies of the Missa Solemnis or Solemn High Mass in full detail with narration by then-Mgr. Fulton J. Sheen.

On October 3, 1979 Archbishop Sheen had an audience with Pope John Paul II at which the Pope embraced Sheen and gave a perfect summary of his life and work: “You have written and spoken well of the Lord Jesus. You have been a loyal son of the Church!” Archbishop Fulton John Sheen, a Son of Peoria, a Son of the Church, died on December 9, 1979 in his private chapel in his Manhattan apartment. In 2002, Bishop Daniel Jenky, CSC, of the Diocese of Peoria, IL officially opened the cause for Sheen’s beatification and canonization.
