A miracle for Fulton Sheen?

|

A miracle involving a Champaign woman has been submitted in support of the cause for beatification of the late Archbishop Fulton Sheen. The miracle involves a Champaign woman whose husband invoked Sheen's aid to heal a tear in her main pulmonary artery.

Catholic News Agency reports:

"Fulton Sheen is one the shining gems of the diocese [of Peoria]," said Msgr. Stewart Swetland, director of homiletics and pre-theology at Mount Saint Mary’s Seminary in Emmitsburg, Maryland, at the signing Sunday.

"Sheen was a pioneer in the use of social means of communication and predated (the Second Vatican Council document) Inter Mirifica and was in some ways a forerunner for the work that Karol Wojtyla [later Pope John Paul II] was able to do in the vast social communications of his pontificate."

Msgr. Swetland said the way Archbishop Sheen delivered the truths of the faith have an impact to this day. "I am constantly amazed that, even with the great increases in the sophistication of media technologies, so many still enjoy listening to or watching his recordings from the 1950s and 60s."
