Heavenly Father, source of all holiness, You raise up within the Church in every age men and women who serve with heroic love and dedication. You have blessed Your Church through the life and ministry of Your faithful servant, Archbishop Fulton J Sheen. He has written and spoken well of Your Divine Son, Jesus Christ, and was a true instrument of the Holy Spirit in touching the hearts of countless people.
If it be according to Your Will, for the honor and glory of the Most Holy Trinity and for the salvation of souls, we ask You to move the Church to proclaim him a saint. We ask this prayer through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
I love this man & have been praying for his cause.
I do think theres an error in the article though. Didn’t he pass away in 1979??
The Congregation for Saints has been considering a miracle attributed to Venerable Father McGivney, founder of the Knights of Columbus, for some time. If that miracle is verified, Fr. McGivney would (one assumes) be beatified first, somewhere in Connecticut.
