Archbishop Sheen's cause presented to Pope Benedict: a former colleague

Catholic World News - May 26, 2011

Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria, Illinois, has presented Pope Benedict XVI with a 2-volume positio, summarizing the case for beatification of Archbishop Fulton Sheen.

As he accepted the documents, the Pope mentioned that he had worked with Archbishop Sheen in preparing documents during the Second Vatican Council. That was “something I hadn’t known,” Bishop Jenky said.

Now that the Peoria diocese has concluded its investigation of Archbishop Sheen’s cause, the Congregation for the Causes of Saints will conduct its own inquiry into the case.
