Documentary remembers Archbishop Fulton Sheen as great evangelist of America

His cause for beatification and canonization was opened in 2002 in Peoria, Illinois, where Archbishop Sheen was originally ordained as a priest in 1919. In December, the investigation tribunal into an alleged miracle was closed and sent to the Vatican for review. ;

Also, now available is the documentary “Servant of All,” which tells Sheen?s story and shows the testaments from many who were close to him or affected by his life. ;

Msgr. Daniel R. Jenky

Bishop of Peoria, Illinois

“He really was one of the most important evangelists in the history of the United States. He may have more souls to his record than anybody else in our nation.” ;

Regis Philbin

TV personality

“I thought he made tremendous impact on everybody, but especially in the Catholic family, who frankly never had someone like this talking to them every week on something like this which they never had either!”

The DVD of the documentary can now be ordered online. While his cause for beatification remains under review, the diocese of Peoria awaits to hear the outcome. ;
