The Source of Light – Fulton Sheen Timeless Wisdom

How can we fill the deepest desires of our hearts; the longing for life, truth and love? Master teacher and theologian Fulton Sheen explores “what we want most,” and how those desires can find satisfaction. His lesson, recorded in 1965, is illustrated by one of New York City’s most beautiful phenomena: Manhattanhenge. This spectacle occurs twice a year when the setting sun lines up perfectly with the city’s street grid, radiating golden light all the way across the island and drawing thousands of spectators, young and old alike.
