FULTON J. SHEEN

         Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

     American Archbishop Listed Among Newly Declared Servants of God

 

   ROME, JUNE 28, 2012 (Zenit.org).- In a private audience today with prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints, Cardinal Angelo Amato, Pope Benedict XVI approved the “heroic virtue” Fulton J. Sheen, thereby officially opening his cause for canonization.

   The American archbishop and former bishop of Rochester New York lived from 1895-1979. He was best known his 20 years of evangelical work on radio and television. Before Archbishop Sheen’s cause can advance towards beatification, the Pope must approve at least one miracle attributed to his intercession.
