Info: During a private audience June 28 with Cardinal Angelo Amato, S.D.B., prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, Pope Benedict XVI promulgated a decree affirming the heroic virtues of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. This declaration carries with it the title of “Venerable” for one of America’s most celebrated and impactful evangelists in the history of the Catholic Church. This is a monumental second step in the process of the advancement of Sheen’s Cause of Canonization for sainthood. Blessed Pope John Paul II declared him Servant of God following initiation of the Cause for Canonization in 2002.
