Venerable Fulton Sheen

In local Rochester news, former bishop and famed apologist Fulton Sheen was recognized today for "Heroic Virtues".  He is now “Venerable”, according to the Vatican Information Service.


- Servant of God Fulton Sheen, American archbishop, and former bishop of Rochester (1895-1979).

Fr. John Hunwicke

The erudite and masterful Anglo-papalist John "patrimony" Hunwicke was ordained as priest in the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham at the Oxford Oratory, June 27.  I sincerely hope this means his always informative and entertaining blog, Liturgical Notes, will resume daily activity in the near future.
