Venerable Fulton Sheen

I was ready for some good news this morning.  Thank you Rocco (H/T New Advent).

“In an audience this morning with his chief Saintmaker, Cardinal Angelo Amato SDB, the Pope assented to several decrees of canonization, beatification and the heroic virtue of souls on the path to sainthood.

Of them all, however, none are as likely to resonate among this crowd more than the declaration as “Venerable” of the figure who’s arguably the most celebrated and effective evangelist in the history of the faith on these shores, once the nation’s most-watched TV personality — the epic, great and beloved “Bishop Sheen”..

Here is a fun video featuring the venerable bishop on a vintage TV show where the panel had to guess who the featured guest was.
