Miracle Attributed to Sheen Sent to Rome

I'm a big fan and promoter of Bishop Sheen's cause. For a free holy card to pray for his intercession click here and follow the instructions.

From the Peoria Journal Star:

Copies of a report on an alleged miracle that took place in 1999 through the intercession of the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen were signed and sealed Sunday by Roman Catholic Church officials.

The 500-page report and supporting documents will now be delivered to Rome by canon lawyer Andrea Ambrosi, postulator of the cause to have Sheen recognized as a saint. There, Ambrosi will argue to a Vatican panel that this case and another being prepared in the Diocese of Pittsburgh are evidence of Sheen's sainthood.
