Heavenly Father, source of all holiness,
You raise up within the Church in every age men and women who serve with heroic love and dedication. You have blessed Your Church through the life and ministry of Your faithful servant, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.
He has written and spoken well of Your Divine Son, Jesus Christ, and was a true instrument of the holy spirit in touching the hearts of countless people.
If it be according to Your Will, for the honor and glory of the Most Holy Trinity and for the salvation of souls, we ask You to move the Church to proclaim him a saint. We ask this prayer through Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
IMPRIMATUR+ Most Rev. Daniel R. Jenky, C.S.C., Bishop of Peoria
Eternal Father, You alone grant us every blessing in heaven and on earth, through the redemptive mission of Your Divine Son, Jesus Christ, and by the working of the Holy Spirit.
If it be according to Your Will, glorify Your servant, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, by granting the favor I now implore through his prayerful intercession:
(mention your request here)
I make this prayer confidently through
Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
“Who’s going to save our Church?
It’s not our bishops, it’s not our priests and it is not the religious.
It is up to you, the people.
You have the minds, the eyes and the ears to save the Church.
Your mission is to see that the priests act like priests, your bishops act like bishops, and the religious act like religious.”
--Venerable Fulton Sheen
