Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Day - here anyway.

I have a great love for the Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen and have recently been reading more of his homilies and powerful quotes made by this wonderful priest as well as digging out my copies of "Life of Christ" and "This is the Mass" both by Sheen.

I (like so many others) eagerly await the day when the Church officially declares him a Saint.  I have no doubt that will happen- I just hope it's soon!
So today is "Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Day" here at Connecticut Catholic Corner!

Here is a wonderful video of a 1941 Easter Mass (Traditional), narrated by (then) Mgr. Fulton Sheen- including Gregorian Chant.  Lovely.

Sheen quotes:

"The Church is like Noah's ark that was full of both clean and unclean animals. It must have had an unholy smell, and yet it was carrying eight persons to salvation. The world today is tearing up the photographs of a good society, a good family, a happy, individual personal life. But the Church is keeping the negatives. And when the moment comes when the world wants a reprint, we will have them."
"The Rosary is the best therapy for these distraught, unhappy, fearful, and frustrated souls, precisely because it involves the simultaneous use of three powers: the physical, the vocal, and the spiritual, and in that order."




 God bless you Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen for all you've done for the Church in teaching and reaching people with the love of God and the message of the Church.
