REJOICE–THE MASTER EVANGELIST BECOMES BLESSED FULTON SHEEN

REJOICE–THE MASTER EVANGELIST BECOMES BLESSED FULTON SHEEN November 18, 2019

What a great day December 21, 2019 will be!  Pope Francis has declared that Bishop Fulton Sheen shall be Blessed Fulton Sheen on that day!  He still is an important part in many people’s lives but none can take away the enormous influence he had on America, both with Protestants and Catholics.  This great day of rejoicing will take place at the Cathedral in Peoria at 10 am.  Details will be forthcoming.  All this saint stuff–how will it play in Peoria?  Excellently and throughout our country and the world as well!

    Thank you Lord for allowing this miracle to be acknowledged by the world, breaking the hold of those who worked so hard to prevent it in NY. May they be in Peoria to be a part of this history. If I can I will be.
    Post my other comments by the way, they aren’t offensive they are factual.

    As a child my father and mother would watch Bishop Sheen every Sunday night – it was their way of beginning the week or perhaps bring Sunday to a close. Bishop Sheen played a great role in helping them through some very rough times. He is indeed a saint.

    Indeed, and the contradiction between this great man who rightfully railed against communism his whole life with those who now sing it’s praise it absolutely mind boggling.

    Looks like you aren’t getting a lot of attention here Father, what’s up with that? Or is Patheos not a particularly welcoming forum for people of faith? The world needs more strong and courageous witnesses unafraid to speak the Truth to lies, I pray for that for you here.

    Whoops! Spoke too soon. Somebody figured out that FJS was an anti communist and free market proponent and the bizarre “suspension “ of the cause suddenly occurs. Just another strange move by the Vatican and members of the USCCB, an odd lot to be sure.
