Fulton Sheen Beatification delayed after “a few” US Bishops request “further consideration” of his life. Vatican agrees to delay.
In 2007, the archbishop was accused of covering up clerical sexual abuse.
Here’s Bishop Daniel Jenky’s statement:

As a bishop, Sheen was a failure (as all conservatives who act like liberals)

I think that comment could be modified and more evidence presented. I think Venerable Sheen admitted he was not a good ADMINISTRATOR, i.e., BISHOP. Holiness, of course, is NEVER a consideration.

Great quotes from Fulton Sheen

[Satan] will set up a counterchurch which will be the ape of the Catholic Church … It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content.

Great quotes from Fulton Sheen

[Satan] will set up a counterchurch which will be the ape of the Catholic Church … It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content.

We are living in the days of the Apocalypse, the last days of our era. The two great forces – the Mystical Body of Christ and the Mystical Body of the anti-Christ – are beginning to draw battle lines for the catastrophic contest.

The False prophet will have a religion without a cross. A religion without a world to come. A religion to destroy religions. There will be a counterfeit Church.

The Antichrist will not be so called; otherwise he would have no followers. He will not wear red tights, nor vomit sulphur, nor carry a trident nor wave an arrowed tail as Mephistopheles in Faust. This masquerade has helped the Devil convince men that he does not exist. When no man recognizes, the more power he exercises. God has defined Himself as “I AM WHO AM,” and the Devil as “I am who am not.”

That first quote is why they hate him.

Though, to be honest, the examination of his life as titular bishop after the Council never seemed adequately examined. As an Ordinary, he was not the tower of strength that he once had been. In any event,Cupich et al. probably complained...

Don't they trust the investigations by the Vatican and their "miracles" anymore?

What were to the reasons why the beatification of Fulton Sheen was postponed? Who are these ‘few’ bishops, who wanted further examination of his life?
Thanks homoheretic bishops...aka Dolan.

Of course, Sheen's beatification is delayed for "further consideration" (indefinitely) But Fr. Augstine Tolton gets the "JPII Fast Track."! Funny thing about that. www.nytimes.com/…/father-augustus…

How are they going to beatify a fundamentalist?

I understood that Venerable Sheen was aware of the corruption (homosexuality) in the NY Archdiocese. I understand he reported it and that is the reason they banished him to Albany. Can anyone confirm this?
Dr Bobus
He went to Rochester not Albany

Could it be that they do not like his defense of orthodoxy and promoting of the true teachings of the church or his stance on communism ??

The US bishops who raised questions should come forward and state their concerns publicly.
