    Rome, Italy, Sep 4, 2014 / 07:32 am (CNA/EWTN News).- In the wake of the suspension of Archbishop Fulton Sheen's cause for canonization due to an ownership dispute of his remains, the office promoting his sainthood says it doesn't expect the halt to last long. Postulator Dr. Andrea Ambrosi “has been aware of the issue regarding the transfer of Archbishop Sheen's remains, but does not believe that this will be a lasting impediment,” his office said in comments made to CNA Sept. 4. He expects “that the suspension of the cause will be temporary, since there are many people...

    Boy, the Cardinal Dolan hits just keep on coming. From the Cause of Archbishop Sheen It is with immense sadness that the Most Reverend Daniel R. Jenky, CSC, Bishop of Peoria and President of the Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Foundation, announced today that the Cause for Sheen’s beatification and canonization has for the foreseeable future been suspended. The process to verify a possible miracle attributed to Sheen had been going extremely well, and only awaited a vote of the Cardinals and the approval of the Holy Father. There was every indication that a possible date for beatification in Peoria would...

    In a letter to be read in the Catholic churches of the diocese of Peoria, Illinois at all Masses this weekend, two days before the election, Bishop Daniel Jenky equates pro-abortion Catholic politicians and the people who vote for them with the mob that rejected Jesus Christ over Caesar and warns that God is not mocked. In the letter, which Bp. Jenky has directed all the priests in his diocese to read to their parishioners, he says that 2,000 years ago, after our Savior had been bound, beaten, scourged, mocked, and crowned with thorns, a pagan Roman Procurator displayed Jesus...

    Via Daily Mail: The Vaticans semi-official newspaper has angered supporters of euthanasia and abortions by suggesting they apply the same justifications that were used by the Nazis to champion their murderous eugenics programme. The controversial claim that they believe in the survival of the fittest concept, was made in an article on the front page of todays issue of LOsservatore RomanO. It was published in response to the recent Italian translation of a 1920 book titled Allowing the Destruction of Life Unworthy of Living, by two German scholars, Karl Binding and Alfred Hoche. It is written by Lucetta Scaraffia, an...

    Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria told the 500 men who attended the dioceses annual mens march and Mass that the days in which we live now require heroic Catholicism, not casual Catholicism. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead [must] be Catholics by conviction. In our own families, in our parishes, where we live and where we work--like that very first apostolic generation--we must be bold witnesses to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, he preached. We must be a fearless army of Catholic men, ready to give everything we have for the Lord, who gave everything for...

    A number of Notre Dame University faculty members are calling on an Illinois bishop who compared President Obamas policies to those of Stalin and Hitler to renounce his comments or step down from the universitys Board of Fellows. In a letter sent Friday to University President Rev. John I. Jenkins and Board of Trustees chairman Richard C. Notebaert and published in full at the Peoria Journal Star Sunday night, the faculty members argue that Bishop Daniel Jenky demonstrated an ignorance of history, insensitivity to victims of genocide, and absence of judgment with his comments during an April 14 homily....

    Peoria Bishop Daniel Jenky (CBS) CHICAGO (CBS) – The Roman Catholic bishop of Peoria has set off a firestorm of controversy, comparing President Obama’s policies to those of Hitler and Stalin.Bishop Daniel Jenky made the comment Sunday. As the crowds who gather round him will attest, he is a firebrand outside and inside the pulpit.“Hitler and Stalin at their better moments would just barely tolerate some churches remaining open, but would not tolerate any competition with the state in education, social services and health care,” Jenky said over the weekend. “In clear violation of our constitutional rights, president Obama with...

    Via Washington Examiner: In a homily delivered Saturday, Bishop Daniel R. Jenky of the Diocese of Peoria, Illinois challenged President Obamas HHS mandate, suggesting that the president was following the same path as Hitler and Stalin. Hitler and Stalin, at their better moments, would just barely tolerate some churches remaining open, but would not tolerate any competition with the state in education, social services, and health care, Jenky said. In clear violation of our First Amendment rights, Barack Obama with his radical, pro abortion and extreme secularist agenda, now seems intent on following a similar path. Jenky added.

    Joining the likes of Cardinals Arinze and O'Malley, my bishop now has his own podcast. For those who haven't had the pleasure before, you owe it you yourself to listen to a homily or two. I've often thought that Bishop Jenky would make a fantastic spokesman for the US Bishops. It's not often one hears a priest who so emphatically expresses what a joy it is to be Catholic through the way he preaches his homilies, not just his words, but the enthusiasm in his voice. Note for those who have never seen Bishop Jenky: just picture St. Nicholas...

    PEORIA, Ill. (CNS) -- In a passionate call to defend the faith that drew sustained applause at an outdoor Mass on Peoria's riverfront Aug. 24, Bishop Daniel R. Jenky declared contemporary culture is "at war with Jesus Christ" and asked Catholics, "What will it take to finally get us mad?" "Will you tolerate the holiest things of our religion on a daily basis being mocked and ridiculed on TV, in the press and in the movies?" he asked the crowd of 800 worshipping under a tent on the grounds of the city's annual Irish festival. Noting that "even the most...
