  • NEW SLAVERY-by Bishop Fulton Sheen 1943

    05/08/2011 7:31:10 PM PDT · by stfassisi · 8 replies
    There are three ways in which a man becomes a slave. He may be born into slavery, or forced into it, or he can deliberately accept his servitude. All three forms flourish in the modern world. Men are born and forced into slavery in Russia and her satellites states. Men in the free world invite slavery when they ask the government to provide complete security, when they surrender their freedom to the “Welfare State.” The slave states of Western world are an outgrowth of monopolistic capitalism—an economic system which is opposed to the wide distribution of private property in many...

    Archbishop Sheen emphasizes the role of Our Lady of Fatima with regard to the Muslims Welcome back to “What’s New” on the Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen website. In our last feature, we presented evidence of an extraordinary prophetic statement by Archbishop Sheen. (If you missed it, see the Archives.) This present feature presents his insight regarding the part Our Lady of Fatima would play in the conversion of the Muslim people. At a special “Peace Congress” in Lisbon, Portugal in 1951, Archbishop Sheen offered a new and very striking observation: “Our Lady has been chosen to be known by the...

    Via Cosmos-Liturgy-SexArchbishop Fulton Sheen’s Cause for Canonization has been moving forward quite well lately. I hear that it appears that the miracle needed for his beatification will be found among those which have been pouring in recently (one of them, which I believe may already have been verified, was from a woman from my parish). A concern is that since he was such a prolific writer, the review of his voluminous writings may not be completed for some time and could, therefore, delay the process.For the review process, each document must be reviewed by two qualified persons. Qualified means: a...

    By Barbara Kralis ©Barbara Kralis 2004 Catholic OnlineThe medical and scientific communities have recently proclaimed what Catholics have known for centuries – reciting the Rosary is good for you.[1]However, the medical experts missed the raison d’ętre for the origin of the Rosary when they hypothesized it was developed by man to give those praying a sense of well-being as a result of their slowed cardiovascular rhythms. Not quite, O men of modern science; but, nice try. In truth, Heaven was the originator of the Rosary.  The Blessed Virgin, in the 13th century, gave the Rosary to St. Dominic.  Because belief of...

    Peace of Soul remains as profound a book now as it was 50 years ago By PAUL KENGOR This month marks the 25th anniversary of the death of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen (1895-1979), one of the most remarkable Americans of the 20th century. Sadly, Sheen’s name increasingly escapes our nation’s collective memory, even among Catholics. Bishop Sheen was extraordinarily popular. By April 1952, he was on the cover of TIME magazine. He won the 1952 Emmy Award for “Most Outstanding Television Personality,” beating out legends such as Jimmy Durante, Edward R. Murrow, Lucille Ball and Arthur Godfrey. Stated differently, these...

    Pressing Sainthood for a Beloved Archbishop By MAREK FUCHS Published: December 12, 2004 A long line of priests, nuns, deacons, relatives and fans wound its way into the crypt beneath the altar of St. Patrick's Cathedral. Their mission: the canonization of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, one of the first priests to use TV to educate, inspire and even convert. Twenty-five years after the archbishop was buried in the crypt, a Mass was celebrated in his honor. The people who gathered at St. Patrick's on Thursday wanted to persuade the Vatican to declare the archbishop a saint. "It's like a kickoff,...
