This is reasonable, and I hope the New York Archdiocese takes it up. The saint’s feast day is always celebrated on the day of his death, and so far as I know, he died in New York, so this wouldn’t be inappropriate. In addition, he actually spent most of his important years in New York City, and adapted with very good grace when “exiled” to Rochester.

I hope this can be resolved. It would be too bad not to continue because of this issue. Sheen influenced so many lives; I think he belonged to NY. Peoria could have a wonderful shrine and library- and even some relics. Wouldn’t that be enough?

Sheen’s books have helped me.

Probably a money thing—Peoria doesn’t want to foot the costs, which are significant. If New York took it over and paid most of the costs, Peoria would piggyback, half-heartedly.

Jenky strikes me as a bit mercurial. The way the diocese responded to l’affaire Howell at the U. of Illinois Urbana was odd and irresolute. The contrast with Myers is striking.

From the Onion (satire newspaper) shortly after the death of Cardinal O’Connor:

Archangels Already Sick Of Cardinal O’Connor Telling Them How They Do It In New York
