Vatican Declares Bishop Sheen Venerable; Let’s Not Forget His Charge to Us

The Congregation for the Causes of the Saints, with Pope Benedict XVI’s approval, has officially opened the cause of American Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen for canonization. At this time, let’s not forget his charge to us —

Who is going to save our Church? Not our bishops, not our priests and religious. It is up to the people. You have the minds, the eyes, the ears to save the Church. Your mission is to see that your priests act like priests, your bishops like bishops and your religious act like religious.”

    I couldn’t agree more: orthodox, pious and true pastors, who admonish the sinner, instructs the ignorant, counsels the doubtful, comforts the sorrowful, bears wrongs patiently, forgives all injuries, and prays for the living and the dead.
