Church Experts Credit Fulton Sheen With Miracle

(Peoria, IL) -- Theologians who advise the Vatican say a miracle reported in 2010 should be attributed to the intercession of Fulton Sheen, former archbishop from Peoria and pioneer televangelist. If authenticated by the Pope, a miracle would advance Sheen on the path to sainthood. The miracle involves a child born in 2010 who showed no signs of life for about an hour as the family prayed for Sheen to help them. A team of Vatican medical experts has found no natural explanation for the child's recovery.
