The diocese announced today that Fulton Sheen will be beatified at the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception in Peoria in a Mass beginning at 10:00 a.m. on 12/21. I know it's short notice, but Bishop Jenky had warned us a few months ago that this might happen, and when the nuncio offers you a spot on the calendar, you take it.

The cathedral is not very big, so I assume there are overflow sites being planned.

I take it that means you will be part of the beatification Mass?

I can't count on it. Our cathedral holds 1,200, and I might get bounced by a dignitary.

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen did so much to help form me as a Catholic. My family so enjoyed watching "Life is Worth Living"!

And all the wonderful books I read that he wrote, when a small library finally opened near me in Brooklyn, NY.

If the river got that high, we'd all be in serious trouble.
