Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Doctors and theologians approve miracle of late American Archbishop Fulton Sheen

2014-06-18

Late Archbishop Fulton Sheen is one step closer to becoming a Blessed. A group of Vatican doctors and theologians agreed that a miracle should be attributed to the intercession of Venerable Fulton Sheen. 

The case involves a stillborn baby boy. His mother gave birth to him back on September 2010. For over an hour, the stillborn showed no signs of life. Overwhelmed with grief, his parents started praying to Fulton Sheen, asking for a miracle. 

After 61 minutes, the baby boy responded. Three years and a full recovery later, the boy named James Fulton Engstrom, in honor of the late Archbishop, is doing just fine. 

The American prelate rose to fame back in the 1950's with his television show 'Life is Worth Living.' He even won an Emmy for his work. He died on December 9th, 1979, but he is still remembered for his direct, clear and moving homilies. 

The process isn't over just yet. Now that a team of doctors and theologians agreed that there is no medical explanation for the miracle, the case will be reviewed by the Vatican's Congregation for the Causes of Saints, which advises Pope Francis, on these matters. 

If given the green light, Venerable Sheen could then declared a Blessed in his hometown of Peoria in Central Illinois. 

After that, yet another miracle would have to be attributed to Sheen, for him to be declared a Saint of the Catholic Church.
