Although our world may be wounded and divided, these wounds are not fatal.
"False Compassion" - In this timeless program, Bishop Fulton J. Sheen explains the two types of compassion. He begins by relating the parable of the Good Samaritan to illustrate the correct type of compassion, or true compassion.

Sheen, with great wisdom, talks about Jesus Who embodied true love. As He dwelt among us during His earthly ministry, Jesus showed us how to love through speech, vision and touch.
