A special Sheen

Yesterday, I had the privilege of meeting the niece of a future saint — and a personal hero — the now-Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen.

Joan Sheen Cunningham dropped by the offices of CNEWA to say hello to her old friend, the agency’s president, Msgr. John Kozar. Kozar has been active (along with Cunningham) in the cause for Sheen’s canonization. Before joining CNEWA last year, he was one of Sheen’s successors as head of the Propagation of the Faith.
