DAY 1 – Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen Novena

How God will judge my life I know not, but I trust he will see me with mercy and compassion. I am only certain there will be three surprises in Heaven.

 

First of all, I will see some people whom I never expected to see. Second, there will be a number whom I expect who will not be there. And – even relying on God’s mercy – the biggest surprise of all may be that I will be there.

When the record of any human life is set down, there are three pairs of eyes who see it in a different light. 1. As I see it. 2. As others see it. 3. As God sees it.

 

Lord, help us to focus on You as Fulton Sheen did so that we may be humble when looking upon ourselves, so that others will see You when they look upon us, and so we can see our lives as You see it.

 

 

 Now pray an Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory be

Prayer of Canonization and Audio (see below)

PRAYER FOR CANONIZATION:

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 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.

Thanks and blessings for this Novena. I recall growing up in the 50’s in Canada and my father never missed Bishop Fulton J Sheen’s Sunday evening program with his profound insight into the Catholic faith. It is a privilege to offer these prayers for his canonisation. The declaration of his sainthood will mean the addition of yet another glorious Saint to the ever growing number of home grown saints to whom Americans can entrust their supplications.

Am asking prayers for my son, Cary. That he may win the battle with his ex wife who is trying in the courts to prevent him from taking his children, he has custody, out of a very evil environment and educate them in Catholic schools in another city. This faithless, abusive mother has managed to drive Cary to destitution with court and legal fees. The children have voiced to lawyers, counselors and teachers that they do not want to live with their mother, but no one is listening. Pray for justice and for these little ones to be at peace in a holy environment free from torment from a loveless mother. Thanx k you and blessings on your beautiful family.

I litsened to Bishop Sheen many times on EWTN all I really know he was rraly much ahead of his time.lreally enjoyed his shows.

Not only did I grow up during his tv time (we did not have a tv but saw him at neighbors}, but I was friends with his niece and visited his families home in El Paso, IL. I grew up near Peoria Il where he preached sometimes. So I feel closer to him than other potential saints and am excited he is on his way. He understands my generation and growing up in the Midwest which gave me some of the outlooks I still have in issues! Thanks.Be to God. Prayers for all.
