Archbishop Sheen's Cause Goes on Despite Irresolution Over Tomb
PRETORIA, Illinois, JAN. 31, 2011 (Zenit.org).- The Vatican will have to decide about the fate of Archbishop Fulton Sheen's crypt, but support for the cause of his canonization is going forward.
This was the announcement made last Thursday by the Sheen Foundation, reporting that a 12-week "pause" in efforts to promote the process has ended, and work is again under way. 

Promotion was put on hold last November over debate about where Archbishop Sheen's mortal remains will be kept. 

His remains currently rest under the sanctuary of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York. But those who are promoting the cause of the archbishop's canonization are based out of the Diocese of Pretoria, where Fulton Sheen was born and ordained, and they are hoping the tomb will be moved to the cathedral there. 

The cause was officially opened in 2002 and centralized its operations in Peoria in 2007. The diocesan phase has concluded and the dossier regarding Archbishop Sheen is under review at the Congregation for Saints' Causes. 

That same congregation has been asked to resolve the issue over the resting place for the archbishop's remains. 

Archbishop Sheen (1895-1979) was an internationally known radio and TV personality, well-known for his television series, "Life is Worth Living," which had a viewing audience of more than 30 million people.
