Archbishop Sheen On Confession

Da Mihi Animas has a marvelous, moving speech by the great Servant of God +Fulton J. Sheen about the Sacrament of Confession. Judging from the color and internal references, I would guess that the speech took place some time in the early 1970s. Abp. Sheen had a very simple, storyteller's approach to preaching that allowed people to forget how broad and well-educated his intellect was. Put differently, he was sophisticated enought to be simple without being simplistic. Watch and marvel.
