Pope declares Catholic television pioneer has heroic virtue

Jun 30, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Televangelist Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen is one step closer to becoming the first American-born man -- and the first Emmy-winner -- to be canonized a saint, after Pope Benedict XVI declared him "venerable" on Thursday.

Close to 2000 years of Apostolic Tradition. The promise of Jesus that the church he founded would stand.

A careful examination of history and Catholic teaching led me to the Church.

Is this type of comment really necessary? How does it further dialogue?

Catholic television merely teaches its false doctrines to a wider populace. NO benefit there, at all.
justa, now they even tell their sheeple who they can and cannot vote for.

Well, that's good for you then, because it seems to work for some. To each his own.

Again, to each his own. Do you believe all non-Catholics or non-Christians go to hell?

Pax, for pete's sake, if a person says ONE little thing isn't true about your church, you think they're the devil himself/herself. Your church has been wrong many times.

How does it further dialogue? It's to make people think. It's a valid statement. If anything at all is said that disagrees with your church's teachings, the person who said it is automatically wrong. That's not the case.

Again to Pax: Most Catholics believe everyone should believe exactly as they do. That is never going to happen. But I just remembered one thing - you're pro-gay rights, so you are not one of "mean" religious, LOL. I think you are more about mercy and fairness.

I have never called or thought anyone was "the devil" because they did not post the truth about the Catholic Church. That the church has been wrong also does not mean that the truth isn't wanted. Telling people they don't "want the truth" is as valid as saying ice cream is the only desert anyone should eat. It is pure opinion and not a "valid statement". People disagreeing with the Church's teachings is one thing. People posting in a disagreeable way about the Church is another thing entirely.

Pax, other folks have accused some of being the "devil"; I don't think you ever did. My point is that many won't admit the church HAS done some wrong things and it has. That doesn't mean it's evil, just not as perfect as some would like to claim. One example - praying in a Protestant service constitutes "false worship". I remember when I was young I attended a Protestant cousin's baptism - when it came to the praying part, I wouldn't kneel to pray, fearing I'd be taking part in the horrible sin of "false worship" - how arrogant I was. But, that's what I was taught, and I'm being as honest as I can be. Nowadays, I don't see that as false worship at all - I believe God hears all those who pray to Him.

My in-laws were Missouri Synod Lutherans. I went to church with them many a time. I participated by singing and praying. Vatican II opened up doors to our separated brothers and sisters in Christ. The worship of Christ can never be "false". The Church is made up of humans and in that humans do stupid and sinful things.

I was initially very much in favor of the ecumenical movement; still am. Nevertheless, it seems to have driven worshipers further apart - have you sensed that?

I do not believe the ecumenical movement has done this. I see it as some entrenchment of those who are because of the financial downturn and uncertainty of life in general needing to hold onto their faith communities with both fists so to find some sense of security. There is still sharing between churches though it is not played up as much as in the ecumenical movement's early years.

Fulton Sheen was as wonderful, holy man. Never heard a negative word about this man.
I vaguely remember his Sat. morning TV shows. able to catch a few of these shows today on EWTN. He is also the author of many books. Happy to hear of his pending sainthood. A Catholic value, Patience. Everyone should practice this one.

Does anyone know the miracle from him?
Good going Fulton

So why do you pay so much homage to mere human beings instead of God alone, like you're supposed to?
We pay homage to those who deserve our homage. We also know that God is above everything and deserves our praise for it is right and just.
Folks today pay more homage to athlete's than they should, like they are some sort of false god. I guess this is you.
I thought you were a nice person, I was wrong. Stop bashing our Pope. You may regret doing so later on when you discover the real truth and nothing but the truth. so help you God.

You don't know a dang thing about me. I worship athletes? I pay NO attention to sports, you know-it-all. YOU are not a nice person. And I couldn't care less about your opinions; you are not very bright. If I don't like the pope that is NONE of your business. Go kiss his stupid ring. Real truth? Like YOU know it? Don't make me laugh. You're the type who gives your religion a bad name. Don't bother talking to me; I find you extremely ignorant and uneducated. Stay with your own kind. The SUPERSTITIOUS ones. And bear in mind that YOU do not tell ME or anyone else what to do. I can't stand people who claim to know things that are simply unknowable. Go tell somebody who cares. You're a disgrace to your religion.

Yeah, you just keep on chasing "miracles". Christ instructed people NOT to do that - but do you listen? Hell, no.

I honestly don't know the answers to that. I wish I did.

I don't want to be on "your cloud". You're lost in space, little girl. Believe what you want; you can't influence anyone with a decent I.Q.

You only like Catholics. Who cares?
