Fulton Sheen's Cause - Victim Of Another Bishops' Snafu?
Rocco Palmo's latest update to Whispers In The Loggia today, cites yet another incomprehensible move by our "hierarchy". I can only hope that it is just a miscommunication that got out of hand. According to the website for archbishop Sheen's cause for sainthood, the Diocese of Peoria is passing the buck for Sheen's beatification, because the Archdiocese of New York won't release Sheen's remains for reinterrment in his home diocese. OH PULEEEZ!! Are we little boys on the playground fighting over territory? Do we need to stand in the corner until we can play nice?!
Excuse my ignorant little backwoods version of common sense, but I think that the BIG BOYS need to talk it out and get back to the cause. Fulton Sheen took Catholicism to the modern world even before Mother Angelica, through his writings and his television series "Life is Worth Living". His humor and advice are still timely, and I think we deserve a modern day saint to inspire us.
Now that I have had my rant, I truly hope that Archbishop Dolan (no relation) will take up the cause for Archbishop Sheen, and that we will soon have another official example of how to live for Jesus in the midst of this world's insanity.
