Based on inspiring new biographies by Liturgical Press, we will take a look at the lives of important twentieth and twenty-first century Catholics. Some living and some now deceased, each of these women and men have known challenges and weaknesses familiar to most of us. Their stories offer us a credible and concrete witness of faith, hope, and love and call us to our own forms of heroism.
Martin Sheen: Pilgrim on the Way

Presented by Fr. John Geaney, CSP
This program will be live streamed at catholicinformationcenter.org
Martin Sheen, best known for his role as a Catholic president on the television series The West Wing, returned to his Catholic faith at the age of forty after decades away. Today, he sees himself as a man in the pew and as a peace and justice activist. He has been arrested more than sixty times for non-violent civil disobedience speaking out for human rights. Fr. Geaney has worked with Martin Sheen professionally and has some personal insights to share.
