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 remember him on the TV. He seemed kind of weird to me.
Uncle Fultie is gonna become a saint! Good news for this New Yorker!
Good news for the Catholic Church.
My Dad recently told me that he had the opportunity to be an altar server for Msgr Sheen, and my Mother began her conversion to the Catholic faith through Msgr Sheen.
He has touched many people and brought the Faith to many.
