Theologians at Vatican move Fulton Sheen's cause closer to beatification

 | 

The possible miracle needed for the beatification of Archbishop Fulton Sheen took another step toward papal recognition Tuesday when a panel of theologians met at the Vatican, the Archbishop Fulton Sheen Foundation announced.

As a normal part of the sainthood process, the theologians met to consider whether or not the promoters of Sheen's cause demonstrated that the proposed miracle -- the survival of a child delivered stillborn -- occurred after prayers for the intercession only of Sheen.
