Quotes

Pope Francis, who canonized the two saints in April, approved the optional memorials "given the extraordinary nature of these pontiffs in offering the clergy and the faithful a unique model of virtue and in promoting the life of Christ" the decree said
"The government has already exempted millions of Americans from this requirement for commercial or secular reasons, so it should certainly protect the Little Sisters for religious reasons."
Bishop Rozanski said, at St. Michael’s Cathedral, that "the relics of St. Anthony remind us of our ties with all the saints. He is here not only to help us find what is lost but to be an example of what it means to be Christian.”"
...talent for this good work with the clear understanding that the body of Venerable Sheen would return to the diocese," the Peoria statement said. "Bishop Jenky was personally assured on several occasions by the Archdiocese of New York that the transfer of the body would take place at the appropriate time. New York's change of mind took place as the work on behalf of the cause had reached a significant stage."
