Our Morning Offering – 5 February – Wednesday of the Fourth week in Ordinary Time, Year A
By Ven Fulton J Sheen (1895-1979)
we have exiled your Divine Son
from our lives,
and our families!
Come with the light of the sun
as the symbol of His Power!
Heal our wars, our dark unrest,
cool the cannon’s lips so hot with war!
Take our minds off the atom
and our souls out of the muck of nature!
Give us rebirth in your Divine Son,
us, the poor children of the earth,
grown old with age!
On 18 November Pope Francis approved a miracle for the Beatification of Ven Fulton Sheen, however the celebration has since been postponed.
Prayer for the Canonisation
of Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen
Heavenly Father, source of all holiness,
You raise up within the Church in every age,
men and women who serve with heroic love and dedication.
You have blessed Your Church
through the life and ministry of Your faithful servant,
Archbishop Fulton J Sheen.
He has written and spoken well
of Your Divine Son, Jesus Christ
and was a true instrument of the Holy Spirit
in touching the hearts of countless people.
If it be according to Your Will,
for the honour and glory of the Most Holy Trinity
and for the salvation of souls,
we ask You to move the Church
to proclaim him a saint.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be
