“Miracle” Baby Named for Fulton Sheen

Fulton SheenOn June 28, two-time Emmy Award winner Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (1895-1979) was declared venerable by Pope Benedict XVI.*

If he can get a confirmed miracle under his belt, he’ll be beatified. If he can get two, he’ll be canonized a Catholic saint.

One miracle currently under investigation involves a toddler who was born without a heartbeat in 2010.

His name? James Fulton Engstrom.

Ironically, the baby’s parents had decided to name him after Fulton Sheen several months before the alleged intercession took place.

Perhaps the miracle was Sheen’s way of saying thanks? :)

*Fulton Sheen won the “Most Outstanding Personality” Emmy in 1952 and 1953, beating Lucille Ball, Adlai Stevenson, Edward R. Murrow and Jimmy Durante, among others.
