Let's officially celebrate the unofficial feast day of Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

Today we will celebrate with french fries for James (his favorite) and a special coffee drink for me.

Dinner will consist of a hearty Midwestern meal of meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Delish.

For some more fun ideas on how to celebrate you can check out these former posts:

Plus the recorded broadcast of me sharing my son's story of his alleged miraculous healing through the intercession of Fulton Sheen.

And if you have a sec, maybe you can say the prayer for his canonization:

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. Amen

Happy Feast Day, all you Sheen lovers!


  1. I didn't realize today was his special day, thanks! I love Fulton Sheen so much and actually just bought Treasure in Clay today to give to my husband for Christmas. Coincidence, I think not!

  2. Candles were lit at our Holy Corner this evening. I'm not Catholic but I dearly love Ven. Fulton Sheen :-)

  3. Special coffee drink! That I can get behind :) do enjoy and we will join you in prayer today.

  4. How did I miss this post?! Love it! I was praying to Sheen and for his canonization yesterday. :-) :-) :-) God Love ya!

  5. Isn't it something; he died on the feast day of St. Juan Diego, who through his media of the day, the miraculous tilma, shouting out the glory and love of God through Mary, the conversion of millions of people came about. Especially when the time was so grave with the millions of Europeans leaving the Church in the Reformation, our Lady replenished the world with just as many new Catholics in the new world. Fulton Sheen, through his mass media, the television, brought God's word and love, and mercy to millions who would otherwise probably never learned about the Catholic faith. Juan Diego was a messenger, and so was Fulton Sheen. What a good day to share a feast day!
