Fulton Sheen’s remains arrive in Peoria; sainthood cause resumes

Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s remains have been transferred from the Archdiocese of New York to Peoria, Illinois, after three years of litigation, clearing the way for the former archbishop’s sainthood cause to go forward.

Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria announced today that Sheen’s remains had been transferred from St. Patrick Cathedral, New York, to the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception in Peoria.

“Church law requires that the transfer of the remains of one considered for beatification must…be done without any solemnity,” a June 27 release from the diocese explained.

“As a result, the transfer could not be publicized in advance. Also, no liturgical ceremony or public gathering could be held during the transfer. Therefore, the transfer of the remains was done without prior public notice.”

According to the diocese, Joan Sheen Cunningham—Venerable Sheen’s niece and closest living relative— and Patricia Gibson, chancellor and attorney for the Diocese of Peoria, along with funeral home and cemetery personnel, gathered early in the morning June 27 at St. Patrick Cathedral in New York, where Sheen’s remains were taken out of the cathedral to LaGuardia airport and flown to Chicago O’Hare.

The diocese also announced that Sheen’s Cause for Beatification, the next step on the road to sainthood, had resumed.

St. Thomas could not have held that because he knew that truth is the adequation

St. Thomas could not have held that because he knew that truth is the adequation
of intellect and when it comes to Faith - thatJesus was the Truth. He also wrote in the Commentary on the Gospel of St. John:
"knowledge of complex things is different than knowledge of simple things. For something can be known about complex things in such a way that something else about them remains unknown; thus there can be false knowledge about them. For example, if someone has true knowledge of an animal as to its substance, he might be in error touching the knowledge of one of its accidents, such as whether it is black or white; or of a difference, such as whether it has wings or is four-footed. But there cannot be false knowledge of simple things: because they are either perfectly known inasmuch as their quiddity is known; or they are not known at all, if one cannot attain to a knowledge of them. Therefore, since God is absolutely simple, there cannot be false knowledge of him in the sense that something might be known about him and something remain unknown, but only in the sense that knowledge of him is not attained. Accordingly, anyone who believes that God is something that he is not, for example, a body, or something like that, does not adore God but something else, because he does not know him, but something else."
No,he did not think that
truth was a pantheistic circle of the pagan snake chasing its own tail.

ABP Sheen came by that opinion honestly because it is also the opinion of Thomas Aquinas
Big thanks to @elbow for the sort of sheen quote his personality cult would like to forget, particularly those in trad-catholic circles.

Just another post-conciliar "saint".

„The combination of travel, the study of world religions and personal encounter with different nationalities and peoples made me see that the fullness of truth is like a complete circle of 360 degrees. Every religion in the world has a segment of that truth"

Nothing I wrote had anything to do with pantheism.

I prefer to begin with Revelation, which is prior to Religion

There are articles of Faith that are held by those who have never heard of Christ or have rejected Him.. Two easy example are Ibn Sina and Ibn Rushd, called the Commentator by St Thomas. Examples of what is held--the human soul continues to exist after death. And of course, there is …More

There are articles of Faith that are held by those who have never heard of Christ or have rejected Him.. Two easy example are Ibn Sina and Ibn Rushd, called the Commentator by St Thomas. Examples of what is held--the human soul continues to exist after death. And of course, there is God over the entire universe.

There is a difference between believing because of Faith and believing becuase of opinion. The former decribes the Catholic, the latter the heretic--and can also be applied to the pagan. In both cases it is possible to have a religion that partially contains certain things held by those who actually have the Faith.

The Faith is One, but acts of belief can be Independent of Faith.
