In these days when many modernist priests, bishops and cardinals are promoting the idea of "universal salvation", the concept of sainthood doesn't seem to mean very much.

Well, I would assume the concept means something to you? As it does to many who are admirers of Bishop Sheen. At least you would acknowledge that this is a worthy cause for canonization?

I have great respect for the late, great Bishop Sheen - but less respect for the rushed-through-production modern saint factory.
