A perfect teacher

A great teacher and great audiobook that I found to be developmental and maturative to a young man coming of age such as myself. I found the intonations and inflections perfect and very well done. I highly recommend this book.

Prophetic Words of Fulton Sheen

Every word spoken by (Saint) Fulton Sheen was absolutely prophetic for our time. The Catholic Church has fallen away from everything that has made it so successful, and Sheen's words to priests are so incredibly on point.

I encourage all faithful Catholics, and those curious, to listen to this collection of priest retreats that Sheen did. Absolutely amazing!

Healthy, challenging and edifying

What did you like most about Called and Chosen?

That the priesthood is a privileged service including "suffering" as well. A lot to think about, for me. Archbishop Sheen explains it in such a clear way that I could not but be challenged by it in a positive way.

Any additional comments?

An audiobook to listen - several times!!!
