On Good Friday, 1979, a television crew visited St. Agnes Church in New York to tape a news piece. They were so enthralled by the speaker, Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, they taped his entire talk. This long lost tape has now been found and digitally remastered. It is titled "His Last Words." Bishop Sheen died later that year. This is the Bishop at his best: in a pulpit, not a TV studio. It is a new Sheen experience seen here for the first time. The Bishop's wit and wisdom transcend the years. His words remain a masterpiece of sacred prose and poetry.

Peter explains how believers should live during difficult times and outlines the right attitude to have about persecution.

The book of Ephesians is the most thorough and wide-ranging account of what it means to be the Church, in the New Testament. The Ephesian Christians lived in the shadow of the massive temple to Artemis, as we read in Acts 19. That 'wonder of the ancient world' must have dominated not only the skyline but also the thinking of the city. Ephesus was a city full of spiritual darkness and occult power.
