This is some good news.  How interesting that it would come on a day like today:

Archbishop Fulton Sheen has been declared “venerable,” and may now be beatified if a miracle is attributed to his intercession.

The Vatican Congregation for the Causes of Saints announced on June 28 that Archbishop Sheen—whose television preaching made him one of America’s best-known public figures in the 1960s—had lived a life of “heroic virtue,” and thus qualified for the title “venerable.” The certification of a miracle attributed to his intercession is now the only remaining requirement for his canonization.

Progress toward the beatification of Archbishop Sheen had been slowed by a conflict between the Archdiocese of New York and the Diocese of Peoria, with each claiming responsibility for the cause. The Peoria diocese finally completed a dossier on the prelate’s life and submitted it to the Vatican last year.

There is supposed to be a miracle directly attributed to Venerable Fulton Sheen.  If verified, he may soon be beatified.  That miracle occurred here, in the US.  Awesome!

Maybe this will inspire EWTN to play more Fulton Sheen and less Christopher West+teen dream happy hours.

“Maybe this will inspire EWTN to play more Fulton Sheen and less Christopher West+teen dream happy hours.” This made my day. Very funny…
