Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

On the same day as the announcement that Obamacare has survived in the Supreme Court, we receive the news of the decree that Servant of God Fulton J. Sheen was possessed of heroic virtues, and thus will henceforth be Venerable Fulton J. Sheen. 

Unless there is a Good Friday in your life, there can be no Easter Sunday.

-- Ven. Fulton J. Sheen


  1. It was Ven. Fulton Sheen's God and Intelligence (his Ph.D. thesis turned into a book) that was responsible for my "intellectual reversion" to the Faith.

    The excitement when reading that thing. Like getting kicked in the face!

  2. TH2, I wouldn't be surprised if one day he is declared a Doctor of the Church.
