In addition to the terrific books and resources recommended by the panel of priests, you’ll want to definitely check out the DVD “A Family Retreat with Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen” from Ignatius Press as yet another way of introducing your family to Venerable Fulton.
As we continue to pray through the intercession of Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen , I invite you to visit the terrific website CelebrateSheen.com where you will find official information about his life and a very special celebration being planned to mark this advancement in his cause for canonization. On Sunday, September 9, 2012, at 10:30 am Bishop Jenky will celebrate a Mass of Thanksgiving to honor Venerable Fulton Sheen in the Cathedral of Saint Mary, Peoria, IL — the same cathedral in which Venerable Fulton grew up, received his vocation to the priesthood and was ordained. You are invited to this historic celebration.
To close, I wanted to share with you one of the many inspirational quotes that share with us the wisdom of Venerable Fulton:
Because God is full of life, I imagine each morning Almighty God says to the sun, “Do it again”; and every evening to the moon and the stars, “Do it again”; and every springtime to the daisies, “Do it again”; and every time a child is born into the world asking for curtain call, that the heart of the God might once more ring out in the heart of the babe. Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, Life is Worth Living
As new generations of families discover for themselves the passion of this man for our faith, I invite you to celebrate this moment of history for our Church in the United States and indeed our entire world. Venerable Fulton, pray for us!
